I have really been missing out! My SD/A 360 was good but this is a whole new ball game! A will soon be seeking professional help to pull me away from my system!!! Who needs to eat away? :lol:

Already got a Sunfire Classic tube preamp I knew the 390t would make a difference but WOW!!!!!!! I think the nos tubes helped too.

Re: CARVER SD/A 390t IT'S MINE!!!!!!!

That's ok I heard the Lighstar and the Sunfire almost sound the same. The Lightstar more nuetral and the Sunfire more toward the warm side. I'm quite satisfied with my set up too but I plan to upgrade my turntable soon. I have my eye on a Music Hall MMF-9.1.
