Carver HT through the years

Post by Wardsweb » Tue Nov 10, 2009 8:13 pm

We go way back and start with a Carver C1, TX11a, m1.5t and TFM-35.

Image

Move a few years ahead and get a Parasound pre pushing a trio of Carver amps; A760x, A500x and TFM-35.
Add two JVC SVHS decks, Toshiba DVD, Teac X-1000R R2R, Sony Cd, Sansui TU-919, Carver TL-3200 CD and
Panamax power conditioner.

Image

Jump forward again and we have scale back where less is more with a Yamaha RX-V1400 with Silver 7t's
handling CLS duty. Add a Phillips 1000 SACD and a new rack to simplify.

Image

Which birngs us to the new house. The Carver gear has moved out of the home theater.

Wow! Those are some great looking systems.

You need to think about going to Carverfest and tell us all about each setup!
Some cool Carver stuff!

Thanks Wardsweb! Really enjoyed the pictures taking us down memory lane. You say the Carvers are now out of the HT? What are you running now? Can't make it out. Very nice set-up! And what kind of TV is that? Thanks!

I listed some of my systems with details in the "List your system" catagory at the top of the forums.

It has taken years to progress from hobby --> passion --> obsession --> lunacy.

I remember many more pic's of the evolution of your audio room and journey. You sure have come a long way. You got any one piece of gear that is a personal favorite that will also follow you to the grave?
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.

I thought I better abbreviate it or we could be here for a very long time.

A few pieces really stick out;
Martin Logan CLS speakers just do so many things right for my tastes.
Clearaudio Champion II table had me really hear my vinyl for the first time.

Oh crap, I think I'm somewhere beyond hobby enjoying my passion with obsession wanting in from the cold outside. I'm OK, still in the passion stage, :-k right? And what is lunacy? Is that like Alzheimer's :lol: :lol: :lol:
