New member intro

New member to this site.I recently picked up a Carver C 1 preamp and an M-0.5 amp. I hooked them up to an old set of BIC Venturi Formula Fours that I had recapped. I was really blow away by the sound. I have had some solid state receivers in the past (my fav was a Sherwood 7200) and the Carver set was above and beyond. I have usually been listening to music through my AV home theatre amps. The Carvers are much better. In fact, I rewired my regular floor speakers to the Carver set and bypassed the whole HT speakers to enjoy my CDs and tapes. Eventually, I will hook up my turntable. I am keeping my eyes open for a Carver tuner as we have a great classical station here in Denver. It sounds like a TX11a or b would be a great match for what I have.

Re: New member intro

Welcome to the forum!

I think that the BIC speaker is a name that I drooled over as a very young kid. I remember before even being a teenager, setting looking at some supplier magazines and thinking how cool they were! Must have about wore out the pages of those kinds of small flyers and publications wishing and wanting. At that age you could just read the descriptions over and over and over....

Now Harry has one or more of all of those we looked at all the time.... :lol:
