Yup. After a couple hours sitting in the most uncomfortable chair on the planet, I decided, this was not what I wanted to spend my vacation doing. It was too much like work. I'll build them some day when I have nothing better to do.

Re: >>>>>The Carverfest 2011 pictures thread<<<<<

Folks that are not here....there are plenty of photos and video being taken. Things are kinda hectic and the signal, as you have read about, is sketchy at best. There will be an influx of photos either when we get back to home [after recovery] or as folks have time while here to post. This is definitely the busiest CF on record and we apologize about the lack of communication with the forum while we are here but shit just happens.

So far, no one has driven off the mountain. The DCB hasn't been spotted yet [there's a rumor she'll show up on Saturday night], there will be two outdoor rigs this year, Bob's speakers are sounding better and better everyday, there are some killer rigs, lots of amps built already.....Bob Faranelli [check sp?] has arrived and he has joined in with the tube amp build, some of the Watershed staff has joined in the fun and are absolutely amazed at what it is we do and how much detail the folks that come put into their rigs and when it comes to the sound? Hehe, oh, the words they describe.... =D>

So, so , so much more going on as I type that I'd sit here for an hour or two to fill you all in.....I just thought I'd chime in and let folks that aren't there know why the forum and the going's on at Carverfest has been slow going in getting to you.
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.
