Hello one and all!

Post by BlueMDPicker » Thu Jun 14, 2007 7:10 pm

I'm semi-new, as I believe I was registered here a few years ago. But, hey, I'm getting so damn old I can't remember much. #-o Like some familiar "faces" here, I found my way over from Polk Audio's forum.

My sig details my Carver-based system. The Carver amps and pre synergize amazingly with the ESL hybrid speakers (a relatively hard load to drive without issues) and active crossover. The Lightstar is driving the panels with the A-500X on the transmission line woofers, horizontally biamped.

Well, I've blathered on sufficiently for a first post. I did want to mention that I had the opportunity to witness the Amazings at the home of a regular member here recently. WOW!

Welcome to the forum BlueMDPicker, looks like you have a very nice setup.

We'll see ya' around the forum..................
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Welcome to the Carver forum, BlueMDPicker. It's nice to see that you have a really nice analogue front end. The Music Hall turntables are an excellent value, and I bet it sounds really sweet with your Lightstar gear.

Thanks bikerdude523 (didn't get the PM yet), treitz3, Dreamer, Bill and tomstat!

Richard,

I also have a Toshiba PT-866 R2R and a Nakamichi MR-2 deck in this rig. All that wouldn't fit in the sig. O:)
