OK, thanks. You see what happens when you're missing an important part of the story.

At least ALL Lightstar owners know there are only two sources of parts in the world!

So, do you have parts just for the amps or for the preamps too? And, IF you do build those 5 amps, do you plan on selling (or trading) any of them for real???

Well I guess the guantlet has been thrown for a little Lightstar vs. Sunfire throwdown at CarverFest '08. I KNOW there will be plenty of Lightstar gear there... you Sunfire boys up for it?

-bear w/me here...[cf'07]

-ray's LS was 1st hooked to a pr of ALSoriginals he just took deliv on
-the surrounds were shot, at least 1/2 of 'em [rotted-out]...did'nt bother him, he actualy took the volume up w/ his amp !!![hard to phathom]
-i would'nt try that w/anything i've ever owned !!!

-the sig7-400 will power 'the wall of sound' all on its own [only amp capable, i believe]

-the last night at the 'watersheds' i could'nt sleep...ray walked by and handed me his remotes [LS and 490t], [said 'go for it'], then took off to crash at his 'watershed'
-had a 2disc set, dig remastered to try out...w/volume 'down' as not to wake anybody, this 'combo' was both musical and accurate...even cranked up+ a couple of symphony melodies on this disc-set ...very nice w/short 'concert levels' 'mad-minutes', again accurate and musical

-mind you, i've never seen a LS in person [did'nt recognize/understand ray's avatar pic, until cf'07]...and really nice to see original boxes and packing, for all this system [how many 'units left ?, w/boxes ?]

-now i've never heard a tfm75/sig600-2/sig5-400 but this LS 'combo', tho only 300-2 ?, was musical and had 'the performance'

-did'nt have alot of time w/the LS system BUT was a very uniquie experience to have enjoyed...if mr BC came back out w/this today, [in say a production run of 1000 pcs], they might could fetch 7, + [against other 'stuff' on the market, who really knows ?]...maybe sig 7-400 or 600-2's may go for big loot too [in limited production runs] ?

-hopefully the toymaker and mr MR can bring-out LS again [heck, i would'nt travel w/rarities like that...too risky]...BUT more power to 'em for do'in so

-would love to hear the sig600-2 and tfm75 in this 2channel 'war'..[did say WAR ]...bring out the modded silvers and blocks !, oh 8-[

-dye'in to hear trexxx's system, BIGTIME [-o<

-and see somebody grab them underpriced AL-V's...dang ](*,)


-just my 2bits


-peace

-hehe, was try'in to get rid of a case of 'wicked hiccups', last night

-the g-man handed me his sunfire remote too

-everyone [cf'07 still] was on the balcony so i could really 'have myself a time'

-had more 'wierdo music' that was everything i could ask for in 'extreme notes'...at concert levels and 'normal' sound levels the sunfire delivered

-kinda think the sig7-400 would give anything on anyday a 'reference point'...'yeah, its that good' hehe

-could'nt take the LS system this hi due to the time of night...a drag

-anyways the sig7-400 w/zero to full sub-woof was a BLAST and had no weak points

-this will be interesting LS vs the SIG...i can see alot of 'pride of ownership' here...and think musical preference will play the biggest role in which is preferred

-acourse the blocks hold their own too

-kinda wish them blocks had dual pairs of binding posts [ala pass labs]
