Naw man, this IS the place to do just that. Not everybody who comes has an exclusive Carver system. In fact an all Bob Carver based system has been relatively rare at Carverfest. Yeah, I don't run Carver in my rig anymore but I still have many pieces of Carver gear here and there for use at a later date when I have a bigger house and when my son grows up.OconeeOrange wrote:I could bring some speakers or etc to challenge Carver gear, but that is a downer and a looser. I don't think you use as much Carver now as you once did. It would be fun to test my Def Tec or Don's speakers against the Carver speakers, but this is not the place for it.
This year, one of my goals is to build an ALL Carver gear system at Carverfest. Of course he didn't make IC's and things of that nature but I guess I'd like to have the most complete all Carver system set up at this year's event. Tubed or SS? I do not care, though I would prefer tubed.
Back to the point. We are not at Carverfest to be a bunch of Carver geeks and shun those who do not have all Carver gear. We all enjoy hearing different things and through the years, we have all heard a plethora of things that we had never experienced before. This helps with the "finding" of the synergy thing we are talking about. So that said, bring it. Bring what you want and set up your own rig if you want.
Hell, Bob even enjoys hearing other manufacturers equipment. It's as much a treat for him as it is us.
