It all started with a MXR-130

Post by cring08 » Sun Feb 03, 2013 9:21 am

It all started in 2010, when I found an old mxr130 in a pile of electronics at a Craigslist yard sale.
That's when I found this site looking for info.
While I am not at the level most are on here, I do love to look back and check out how everyone's systems has progressed.
I am really excited to set up the tgp 4 due this week, 300x2, and Amazings as my main system now.
I currently have my audio on an old rack, neatly housed in the audio closet in my living room, with speakers wired under he floor. The new pre and amp are going to be prominently displayed! The Panasonic cheap surround will goto the bedroom! Maybe house source equipment in the media closet?

Thanks again for all of your insight!



Living Room/main System:
Onkyo tx nr 545
Sunfire 300x2
Sunfire CRM2’s
Technics SL 1950 Turntable
Little Bear phono pre
Polk Audio outdoor speakers wired to patio/pool

Bedroom system starting
Carver Amazings (ready to send to sea for ribbon rework)

Garage system 2:
Carver MXR-130
Teac reel to reel
Musical Fidelity X-10D tube buffer
BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer
Nikko eq2
Cerwin Vega HED's
Pioneer 100 disk changer

Lookin' good! I'm sure you'll be very happy with what the TGP-IV does for your system. I remember my first Sunfire pre was a TGP-IV (Angelo has it now) and just could not believe the difference in sound. Up to that point I was convinced for some reason it was the amplifier that made the biggest difference, boy was I wrong. #-o I've actually had the same system you're about to have approx. a year ago, TGP-IV, 300x2 with a black pair of Silvers and it sounded pretty incredible.

Here's a link to my Silver impressions, can't believe I didn't post pictures or a follow up... ](*,) ](*,)
