OO WANT LIST
Not calling DIBBS, just thinking out loud on CARVER FORUM with my "friends" where I might get some leads and advice. You guys know a lot and see a lot. Many of you upgrade all the time. I need your cast off stuff.
I wanted Bob's Black Beauties and after posting here and holding them for ten days, got cut out in the last 4 seconds by one of you by $100.
I am over that, never even think about it these days.
For weeks now I have been trying to score a deal on a used turntable. I keep my options open, but kinda narrowed it to a Rega. I don't know why I need Rega, but pretty sure I do. I hate it is not semi-auto, but what the hell? So far all those that appeal to me sell too high on ebay and Audigon. No big deal as my TT sounds really good and I am a patient guy. Speakerlabfan advises me to buy new. He is an expert, and not just on TTs but audio sound. He makes a good argument and if I had $$ --
I also want to play with tubes now thanks to all you here who tout that. The last good Sunfire Tube Pre went over a thousand, and I only bid over 900. With all here who now claim to want one, don't try calling dibbs. If another cherry one appears, I am going for it as are many here. I am just not doing it behind your back. On the other hand, there are some really great looking ones being made now in Hong Kong. I might buckle and buy that. Any advice on that? Many look like art and have a phono stage.
It goes without saying that any decent 600-2 that hits the market will cause a blood bath here.
DiBBS are off. Bob's Black Beauties taught me that, and so now I will not be bringing them to CarverFest for yall to check out -->
I told Bob I had no speakers for them and he emailed me not to worry that he would find me some great speakers - dirt cheap. (He really is a good guy who loves audio and wants that for us).
As to my next speakers, these days I want to hear these:
I might get to hear those at the Atlanta Audio show.
I have a room booked and tickets bought, but Skip and Wayne don't want to spent the night there with me - Going alone might not be as much fun as staying home.
I guess I will cancel and go fishing.
What is on your "WANT LIST"?
