Hello Everyone

Post by Northguy » Thu May 01, 2014 1:13 am

Hello, was searching the web for Carver info and came across this forum. I am so glad that I found this site, I had no idea that there was a Carver forum. I have been into HiFi for the vast majority of my life and have always loved Carver equipment.

I own many different brands of stereo equipment and if you were to ask my wife she would probably say I own to much HiFi equipment. My main system that I listen to the most and just got set up three days ago consists of a Carver C2 preamp and a Carver TFM 45 amplifier. This is my first system with seperates and I am just blowen away at how great this system sounds, the music has so much depth and detail its almost unbelievable.

I live in a very small town in Northern Ontario Canada where there is not alot of other people. Because the winters are so long up here it is the time I can put the most energies into my HiFi music hobby. I know it will be very interesting getting familier with this forum over the next week or so and I know I will have some questions about my Carver gear. Looking forward to being part of the forum.

Thanks everyone for making me feel welcome. As to how far north do I live, lets just say I live in a small community located at the most northernly part of the largest (by area) freshwater lake in the world. The speakers I am driving with my Carver amp are Klipsch rf 82 II's.
