That's commitment. Move all the way to the left coast to be near the Bobfather.

Yeah, he figured, with all the trips he was going to have to make to Bobs just to get them to work, it would be cheaper to just move out there. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

All is justified in the end. There are many turns on the road to audio nirvana.

Re: Carver "Silver Four" Monoblock project

I got the transformers a week ago or so and am in teh process of fitting them to the chassis at the moment. Because of the granite, handling them and getting them positioned properly is a total pain in the ass, but worth the effort. They BARELY fit within the confines of the covers, with just a 16th of an inch to spare on the sides. The biggest news is that they finally met the Bobfather, and he was completely floored by the way they look. He was equally impressed by the workmanship of the way everything fits together and by the internal layout. Even the point-to-point work got a thumbs up.

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.
