Infinity RS-4.5 > I only know this from reading his other post, haha. Thanks for the picture, Just a Beautiful set-up!!! =D>

And, What! Is that a Lightstar on the bottome? I must be seeing things?


Thanks, bottom amp is a Bryston 4B. Another Sunfire is not out of the question though.

Re: List Your System !!!

Sorry this might be off the current topic, but new to the forum and I guess this is the place to list my gear. I'll start by only mentioning the Carver equipment as the list would seem endless otherwise. I've been told that it's no longer a hobbie but an illness when it goes this far "I love you wife".

O.K., here's the list along with their place in the system.

Left side of my self made custom built entertainment unit.

top: DPL-33 Dolby Pro Logic Surround Sound Processor/Amplifier
next: C-16 Preamplifier
next: TFM-15 Power Amplifier (bridged mono to my center channel speaker)
next: TFM-15 Power Amplifier (feeding the rear channels)
next: TFM-25 Power Amplifier (feeding the main front channels)

Right side

top: TX-12 Tuner
next: TD-1400 Cassette Deck
next: MD/V-500 CD/CDV/LD/Multi-Disc Player
next: SACD player to be mentioned later as it's not a Carver piece of gear (mentioning to complete the system)
next: 1000watt Power Amp (not a Carver) feeding the built in subs

All this topped by a yard sale turntable

Sorry the pic is so grainy, will search my files for a better one later

Addendum: Just noticed the order of the right side equipment is a little skewed, the second piece is actually a Nakamichi tape deck with the Carver in place of the Laser Disc player

Re: List Your System !!!

Nice! Feel free to mention your non-Carver gear. We all have mixed systems for the most part. Hell, some don't even own Carver gear anymore!

OH, I will, BEEEELLLLIIIIEEEEVE ME", but the list is virtually endless, "McIntosh" (said in hushed voice).

Actually, about 15 years ago Sony introduced some high end speakers garnering great praise from Stereophile magazine, these are the SS-M3. I built the custom stands pictured myself.

It's not so much that I have a mixed system as that I have multiple systems (I've actually lost count). ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Thanks, ran the center and rear channels off the processor's built in amps for a while but it lacked dynamics, much improved with the TFM-15's. I know, way over kill for the center and rear cannels.

Re: List Your System !!!

Hi folks,
I'm from TN and new to this site. My system could definately be called vintage since I get it back in the late eighties, but I wouldn't trade it for anything new. It consists of the following:

Denon DP-30LS Direct Drive Turntable
Carver TX-11a Tuner
Carver DTL-200MK2 CD player
Carver C-1 Sonic Holigram Pre-Amplifier
Carver M1.5t Main amplifier -2
Polk Audio SDA CRS+ Loudspeakers
Polk Audio Monitor 10b Loudspeakers
