Bill, I will be bringing the most decked out, custom modded/upgraded pair of SDA's [that we know of] on the planet. As you know, these will be set up in George's cabin [WS1] downstairs. You'll have to ask him what tube gear he's bringing because I don't know.

The Tyler Acoustics subs were custom built by Ty and they each have a 1000w plate amp in the back. They feature one 10" Seas driver [the same driver that's in the Lynbrooks I have] and are finished in I believe Rosewood. These will be featured also in George's cabin and will be paired with his modded Tyler Acoustics Taylos 7U's. Man, I can't wait to hear those!

That's all I got for you man.

In response to Tom's post,,the plan for the SDA's will be a Quicksilver GLA 40 watt tube amp with the Shuguang Black Treasure 6CA7's,,,,probabally a Dared SL200 pre(heavily modded) and a Jolida JD 100(modded),,now for the Tyler 7U's,, either a pair of Quicksilver M-80 monobloc's,,or a pair of modded VTL mono 100's(depends if I receive the VTL's in time from the modder),,and maybe a Beacon III pre-amp.

Zoot-
Which sound better? The Quicksilvers or the VTL's (in stock form- since you have not heard it with the mods yet)

VTL's

The Quicksilver's are "faster" and are very well built.The VTL's,,can be "fineky",,as with all vintage gear,just have a way of sucking you in to their sound.My VTL's are 20 years old and I was planning on having them back by now,,but thats not the case,the trannies are being re-potted into a new chassis/wiring/etc.There is some magic with the VTL mid-range--now with the quickies,,I'm gonna tweak the bias up a tad and see if they get a little more "bloomy".Just my .02.

Any interest?

Post by treitz3 » Fri Jul 29, 2011 10:03 am

I had mentioned before that I might be bringing a Musical Fidelity A3cr amplifier. I see no need to bring it, unless someone is actually interested in hearing it. It is not a common ground amplifier, so it will not work with SDA's. It is the most linear amplifier I have heard to date and if there is no interest, I'll just bring it to CF when Sparky III is completed.

Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

Good reads, but if it ain't a final decision and PMed to me as such, might not make the cabin brochures for CARVER FEST 2011. I got to assemble this and get it to a printer. I enjoy it ALL, but football season starts September. My mind will be focused in a new direction by then. My guess is if they are not PMed by then, it means you don't want to be included, and have a secret surprise. I am good with that.

Eddie,

Me too. My first set of high end speakers that I heard in the early 70's were Ohm's, either F or G's, don't remember. Boy, they sounded like no other speaker I had ever heard before. Way out of this college kid's price range, so I bought the Dynaco A-25 for $120/pair instead.
