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

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...

That’s nice Don....as I’m sitting here shivering ‘cause it’s Ohio and it’s cold.

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 ...

Re: Carverfest Tube Amp Technical Discussion

I have some 1940s vintage 6L6s that have plate maximum of 440 volts. Bob thought they might fail in the amp. I have not tried it yet but most likely they’ll stay in the boxes. Ruining 80 year old tubes someone else might enjoy would suck. ray Btw, it’s my understanding one amp owner purchased much l...

The Alan Parsons Project-Akron Civic Theatre

My brother and I are off to see the Alan Parson Project November 11th. I really like his creations, found pretty good seats in the orchestra pit for decent$$ I can't wait :D

Going home soon to put an ear on Tales of Mystery and Imagination on my new Carver Crimson 275s.
