I guess it's time to say hello

I've been lurking around the posts for a few weeks and thought it would only be proper to introduce myself. I'm a retired (early) engineer (aerospace and computer). Took a few EE courses during college and grad school at the University of Michigan.

Bought my Carver gear starting in 1980 with the C-4000 and C-500 (avatar). Also have an M-400 (cube). Thinking of getting some more amps for HT. The big amp requires ventilation (fans) to operate for hours on end, so it is out for HT.

You guys seem nice. Too bad I can't make Carverfest. I guess you should add me to the west of the rockies list (or is it south of the rockies :-k
It should sound like it isn't there!

Carver: C-4000 & C-1 preamps, PSC-60 preamp/tuner, TX-11a tuner, M-400 (2), C-500, M-500, M-500t, M-500t Mk.II, A-500x, AL-III loudspeakers (2 pr.)
Sunfire:Theater Grand III processor, Ultimate Receiver, Cinema Grand Signature 400 ~ seven, True Subwoofer Mk. II, D-10 Subwoofer

Well BillD, your surely west of the Rockies. Welcome friend. \:D/
You'll have to add yourself to that thread though.

Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

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.
