Welcome to the forum JohnK, the Ohm's were well liked.
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.

Hello John findly go you to post something! So everyone knows JohnK (jstang) is a very good friend of mine here in New Jersey! He is just kidding about taking the Walsh 5's from his basement but he does have his own set of OHM F's down there I was trying to get him and the F's to go to CF09 but no luck! Well there is always next year at CF10! Eddie!


See what happens.... I let Eddie in my basement once and he stole my Walsh 5s .... and ran off to NC with them.... :D

How did you all like the Walsh 5s? I heard they were a hit...

My first post here, love the heavy metal Carver amps...

I am sorry to see the LightStar amp leave Eddie's basement... I love audio gear that breaks my back to pick up.

I have to search for some nudes on that amp...

You are healing up slowly. Does it still hurt?
Some cool Carver stuff!

Actually it is healing pretty fast.
Today I was able to pick the rest of the main scab off... even though it pulled some of the fresh skin with it.
It was 1 huge solid scab till Saturday.. then I started pulling it off. Got the last of it today. Mmmmmm crusty !!!!

Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."
