LightStar Ref 1 Amp owner w First visit to the Forum

Greetings all,

I own serial # 95X2040010
608-00650-03A

It powers the L & R mains for my Home Theater.
This is quite an easy chore since the Onix Strata Mini is childs play for this beast.

It has been with me for 12 years or so & never a problem. Glad to see that I could get help If required.

thanks, damon

I usually don't welcome most members, I leave that up to the "Welcom Wagon" guys,
but for a fellow Lightstar owner, I will make an exception...

Hello damon! As you can probably see just from the replies on your 1st post! there are a few odd balls here, but don't fret! We are all getting a little Holiday Happy around here with all the Carver/Sunfire item's coming down in price just before Christmas!! I want that! NO! I want that one on e-bay, No! AudioGon has it cheaper! I think, Shit I can't remember! Where did I see that fricken Amp!!
As you can see, I'm the only sane one around here!
Welcome again, look forward to more of your post. That is, if we ever hear from you again? Hehe.

Yeah, what's up with Rabbit getting an attitude lately? Ummm, I'm thinking he needs some help. Maybe we should get him all drunked up, and introduce him to (make up name) one of those "real dolls". And Rabbit, did you really watch that whole 48 min. video?? Dam! oh, I didn't watch all of it > just guessed at the time. OK, bye!
Hehe

Re: LightStar Ref 1 Amp owner w First visit to the Forum

I certainly appreciate the welcome & already feel @ home.

I am not easily intimidated. My Home Theater consist of 2 Marquee 9500 Ultra CRT Projectors ( 360 Lbs total) that blend into a single 14' image.
Not quite what your local dealer is going to run out & support.

BTW: I own some tube Amps as well. A MCIntosh 240 my Dad bought new in College. An SP3 & an old Scott.

Think I have a 5 Channel Rotel & a few modded B&K 140's to boot.
