I remember seeing somewhere that he was bringing a pair of CRM-3s with him to demo .........

Do you mean CRS-3s?
I just bought a pair of those - took them out of the box when I got home last night. So far, so good. One thing is for sure, they are beautiful.

You are correct Garcianc, the model numbers are not consistent. There are CRM-2s and CRS-3s. The first are free standing, the latter are wall mount and have an extra woofer. Tell us how you like the sound of them.

I really liked them. Of course, they need a sub, but they sound much, much bigger than they are.

Re: Is the live feed from Carverfest up yet?? How do I access it

Okay, now that I have picked myself up from the floor! Awesome pics. I have to empty my drool bucket now. Looks like a lot of nice gear and sounds like everyone had a blast. Kudos to the event planners. I will just have to start saving for the next one!!! :) Hopefully Mr. Carver had enough of a good time to visit again.

Re: Is the live feed from Carverfest up yet?? How do I access it

Hello ladies and gentlemen of the forum! Treitz3 here. I'm just checking in and letting everybody know that I'm home, I'm safe and I'm tired. I hope that everybody who attended had a great time and I hope to see you all again next year.

For the forum members who may not know, Bob is planning on being here again next year. He kept saying that he was having the time of his life and absolutely ate up the passion the attending members had with audio.

I [we] apologize about the live feed not being able to work this year. If it wasn't one snag, it was another. Anyway, I'm tired and I want to see my wife so I'll just say that many, many more pictures and videos will be put up on this website. I think we have a combined 4 or more hours of Bob and the Q&A. Give us some time to recover, unpack, breathe and settle back into reality and you will see them all as time allows.

Ok, that's it. I have a date with my wife and a nice, soft pillow.

You just made my night. Maybe my whole week! :)
Was afraid I had missed my chance to meet Bob.

Glad to hear you made it home safe.

Re: Is the live feed from Carverfest up yet?? How do I access it

Just a quick recap of a few things I recall from the Fest this year:

-it be the HELL out of last year's event!

-we had least 8 rigs set up, and I'm sorry to say I never got the opportunity to hear George's (zoothorn).

-Bob Carver was most approachable & it was quite clear he had an EXCELLENT time! I had an opportunity to steal about 30 minutes of his time. We talked about the history of how I got my system together (he said of my AL-IIIs "they're MINT!") and also about an easy physical mod to counter the 7-8k ribbon resonance WITHOUT a notch filter in the crossover/eq. Look for details of this in a later post! HINT: check out the front of the new Sunfire Cinema Ribbons. He came to me on three different occasions & asked to hook up his tube amps to my system~what an honor! (It sounded FANTASTIC, BTW)

-radioeng2 (Mark) made CF '08 CDs for everyone with selected recordings, which were incredible. Some of the finest & interesting recordings I've experienced. I'm pretty certain he said he'd be happy to provide a copy to anyone who's interested, but check with him to be certain. For sure, Mark has a very BROAD & DEEP knowledge of the audio/electronics world. I had several opportunities to pick his brain & it was most enlightening. He's a GREAT guy, to boot!

-Thanks to engtaz for being a dynamo of energy & helping out ALL OVER! He took several memory cards from folks who had been taking photos & copied them onto CDs which were signed by Bob C. himself & distributed to all there.

-We're planning to consolidate all the video & photos onto (hopefully) a single DVD, which might possibly contain radioeng2's music CD as well, if possible. It will take some time, though; so please be patient. engtaz (Roy) has volunteered to do this-thanks! =D>

-There was WAY too little time to accomplish all we wanted to get done! Sadly, I was not able to audition Rainman's PS Audio cables on my system, which was one of my goals. James & Tom were overwhelmed with stuff & I'm going to try to help them next year & maybe get things delegated out to different members to spread the burden around.

-Bob relentlessly signed everything we put in front of him; I'm certain he was suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome by the end of the week! A HUGE thanks out to him for putting up with a bunch of drooling goobs falling over ourselves at sight of him....he is really just a great person & made everyone feel completely as ease. Once we were over the euphoria of meeting him, it was as easy to talk to him as anyone else at the Fest. He was interested in everyone's systems & eagerly swallowed up details of how we did what & what we thought about things. If you asked him a question about his thoughts on how something might sound, he'd say "I don't know, let's TRY it!" I only HOPE I have his energy level & spark of life when I'm his age. James (Toy Maker) made an EXQUISITE plaque for Bob (pics to come) that was all signed with gold & silver pens. Bob was pretty close to tears when James presented it to him.

-The surroundings in the Great Smoky Mountains was fantabulous! Hot tubs on the deck, plenty of fresh air, things to do within a few miles, TONS to keep you busy in audio listening & discussion. Who could ask for more?!?

-Ray (MagnaRyder) was a tour de force with the meals! Those who didn't make it TRULY missed some of the finest meals ever served. THANKS RAY!!! =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

-Jesse (F1Nut) looks NOTHING like his avatar, just to clear that up! :D :D :D Also, he's nowhere near as "gruff" in person (sorry to destroy the illusion, Jesse!). I'd also like to add that he has one of the CLEANEST sounding (& looking) systems I've ever experienced. Truly a sonic treat & sexy eye candy, too.

-HUGE thanks to James, Tom, Ray & everyone else who helped for pulling off an OUTFUCKINSTANDING CarverFest! =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

-Last, I'm really sorry we were not able to get the streaming video feed up for the rest of you out there. I know you were waiting eagerly & it must have been a disappointment. However, some of us tried to post a few notes & pics to give you some idea of what was going on.

That's about it for now; I'm sure others will be posting more over the next few days. Thanks to those who've already posted details of the event to the forum! More to come....

Gary
