New to the Forum

Post by RapidRobert » Fri Jul 03, 2015 3:23 pm

Greetings, folks,

Long-time Carver enthusiast here, new to your forum. Back in the `70s, my old roomie and I had a Phase Linear 700 driving 2 pairs of Advent Large speakers, stacked (I`m sure the neighbors loved us :D ). I had been saving money for some new gear, and in 1986, I purchased a Model 4000t preamp, M500t amp, and TX-11a tuner, which became the heart of my system. Still going strong after 30 years !

I've got a friend that ran a stacked pair of the big Advents for decades. I heard them several years back and was pretty impressed at what they did! He was running them with a hot rodded pair of Dynaco Mk 3 mono-blocks. Sweet setup. I heard for myself why I'd always heard of those speaks!
