Hello to all - old Carver fan, new to the forum

Post by k2dx » Wed Feb 10, 2010 6:45 pm

Hello from South Jersey. I started with a pair of new Silvers in the black laquer powered with a M 1.5t. It didn't take long to move up to a new pair of Platinums in Oak finish, and a pair of bridged M 4.0t amps. I've stayed with them all these years, had the woofer surrounds replaced by Orange County Speaker, replaced the 60" ribbons twice... the first time was still under warranty. I have the Loudspeaker Control System box that is used to dial in the woofer 'Q', I don't use holography function. I run the bridged M 4.0t amps on their own dedicated AC circuit.
Main system: Carver Platinums with bridged M 4.0t amps
Other systems: vintage '54 Klipschorns with Heath W6 amps, Klipsch pro La Scalas with Marantz 2325, Polk Monitor 10s with Marantz 2230
