WOW! Would love to pick up a set. Out of money right now. Just paid off my car. So in a few months I will have a lot more spending money to fuel my OCCD.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Re: Bob's New new amps.... Mmm Eye Candy Red

Bob,

Why are you doing this to me. I was 2rd bidder on the last pair. (lost out by $50.00)
I had the cash around at that time.
Due to replacing my B&W speakers, I am like a lot of us now, cash poor. :(

Perhaps I spoke a bit too soon. The real answer is, 'it depends.' Read this copied Q&A from the current audioshopper auction:

Q: ...which output tubes are used in this amp, 6550's or the kt88's, the write up refers to both articles tim depravacini/stu hegeman and yourself, is there any difference between the carver/pravacini mono's and carver/hegeman mono amps? thank you! david Mar-21-09
A: Hey old friend, these amps use KT88's. The difference is in the front end; these use 12AT7's, 12AX7's, and 6AL5's with KT88's. The Hegeman units use 6AW8's, 12BH7's, and 6AL5's with 6550's. I cannot answer the question which one do I like better because it's just like asking which of your children do you love more. I love them both the same, even though they each possess distinctive audio personalities! Bob Carver
