Re: Carverfest 2015 speaker build

Robert, thanks for the continued experimentation and filling us in on your progress. I James' speakers daily in TheNewOfficeRig(tm) powered by a pristine M500. The rig sounds great. Speaks are 5-6 ft from side walls, 1-12ft from rear wall and 5-6 ft away from my ears. I'm running no equalization rig...

Re: Smashed Plastic-Chicago

From Smashed Plastic Hey Ray, thanks for getting in touch. We're still finalizing some of the elements of our build out & production right now, but we should be in a more settled state come April 12 for AXPONA. If you'd like to get back in touch in March, we can work on a time that would work for yo...

Smashed Plastic-Chicago

I contacted Smashed Plastic a newish LP pressing plant to see if they'd grant a tour during Axpona. I'd love to see the process. Who'd be interested? Chicago is easy to navigate so getting from Axpona to Smashed plastic 'should' be fairly straightforward. I'll know more when/if I hear back from them...

Re: Carver M 500T fuse problem

Obviously there is something going on with the amp. Have you been in contact with the individual who did the mod and did they offer a warranty? I'd try them first. If no luck there you might try Greg Garska at

Greg will help you out

30 Days of The Dead

DeadHeads and fans of the Grateful Dead rejoice!! Here is a link that Lee(PackRatt) sent me to download 2010-2017 (so far) the 30 days of the Dead tracks. While it's just MP3 files it still should be pretty cool.

Enjoy!

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Don, thanks for the review. I noticed characteristics similar to those you mention while in Bryson City. Tons of ‘air’ around the instruments and place the vocalist in a nice halo. Very similar to something Angelo was doing with his speakers a few years back. The presentation is quite different when...

Re: Carverfest Tube Amp Technical Discussion

I had the chance to spend some time with the 275 prototype at CarverFest and several days with my amps at CarverFest and in my rig at home. I really like the presentation that I get in my system from the new 275. There is a delicacy and power about it that is a departure from the EAR that I find ent...

Re: Carverfest Tube Amp Technical Discussion

We discovered during the 2011 build there were marked differences noticed when each amp was spec'd out. I'm sure that will be the norm this time also. Not to mention when various units get modded you'll want to establish baselines for the amp involved. My methodology for modding anything.

Re: Carverfest Tube Amp Technical Discussion

I think some of Bob's best design work is in this stereo amplifier. No frequency response testing really necessary IMO, just listen to it! I’m certain our amp is the result of his latest thinking on tube amp design, that’s not the point. You can’t know where you’ve gone if you don’t know where you ...
