Re: BLOG ABOUT CARVERFEST, BOBFATHER REQUESTED

Never been to a 'Fest, but Bob and his friendship are remembered every day when I flip the switch on my amps.

Re: Airshow

The last airshow I went to had an F22 Raptor flying before the Thunderbirds came and did their thing. People were packing up and leaving after the Raptor landed. Before the T-birds got wheels up, half the crowd was gone or leaving.

Re: Nooshinjohn's setup...

Thanks guys. That turntable weighs 300 pounds, and will be an end-game piece for my analog setup. I will be looking for cartridges, but I really can't see there ever being a step up fom it.

Nooshinjohn's setup...

Here is a couple quick picks... the system is powered by my Carver Statements that Bob and I completed a few years ago. I still think they are the prettiest amps to wear the Carver name. Pass Labs gets the Preamp and Phono stage duties, while the TriangleART Reference SE prototype is new kid on the ...

Re: fuses popping on carver tube amp

An update... I came home from work, plugged in an old speaker and removed all the tubes. I powered it up and it stayed on without a problem. I reinstalled the input tubes, then followed with the output tubes. I found one pair that popped the fuse in 15 seconds. They are the two that are on the rear ...

Re: fuses popping on carver tube amp

I swapped the front end (12ax7, 12at7, 6al5) from the good amp to the problem child and got the same result. Ten to fifteen seconds and the fuse pops. I did not think an output tube would cause problems with the input side of things, but I will swap those tonight when I come home with new fuses. I d...

fuses popping on carver tube amp

Tonight, my left channel started popping the fuses on the input transformer. I have been using 6a 250v slo-blo fuses since the amps were moved into the new audio room, which has a 20 amp circuit. The amps have been plugged directly into power , and after the fuse popped, I moved the amp onto my powe...

Re: Tube pre on ebay

For less than that, I got my Pass Labs X1 pre. I won't be looking for anything else. in my opinion, they're one of the finest sounding preamps ever made. Tube rolling or not, I had one of these pre amps, and it was nice, but it was not even in the same ballpark as the Pass. You may have got the X1 ...

Have never heard one in person. in my opinion, they're one of the finest sounding preamps ever made. Tube rolling or not, I had one of these pre amps, and it was nice, but it...

Re: How to tell what amp it is

It is a 300... If it were a sig, the Joule meter would be almost maxed out to the right. Offer 600 bucks. The amp is almost 20 years old now, and may be in need of some level of service to freshen it up.
