  1. More rave reviews: member in Illinois, "Sounds great.. Have the factory 12AX7s in the 350s and its very nice. Enjoying the hell out of it!" member in Arizona, "I installed it in a test system and it sounds great." Thanks to everyone for all your kind words. If anyone has questions post them here or if you prefer send me a private message. David
  2. Does anyone ever have enough Carver?
  3. Wow, very generous! I've been wanting a C4000 for a long time. That's a beautiful one, too! I'll take number 93. Good luck everyone!
  4. Since I have no wife to tell me "no", and since it is such a great karma from two generous music lovers, please count me in.
  5. Hi, B-Man, Frequency response 20-20,000 Hz +-3db Schematic is being updated for publication with a users manual. Power switch controls power to the transformer, so off is off.
  6. For you tube rollers, these adapters can be inserted to use 12AX7's instead of 6N2's in the LP1 preamplifier. (Adapters are available on Ebay.)
  7. Hi, Wayne, we did look at offering a black face plate. Our fabricator doesn't do that in house and it was extra cost so we decided to stick with the natural anodized.
  8. The tubes included are as follows: Up front near the controls are 2x 6N2's, behind them near the input/output jacks is one 6N1, and near the power supply is a smaller 6Z4 rectifier tube. The faceplate dimensions are 17 3/4" wide x 4 1/2" tall x 1/4" thick. (Chassis is 17" wide x 4" tall x 12" deep.) Yes, that is correct.
  9. The Ten Octave Audio Model LP1 tube preamplifiers are now in production. This is the production version of the preamp that was previewed at the Carver Fest 2018. Each unit is currently hand-built when we receive an order, although we are planning to have several in inventory for immediate shipment as time allows. The normal price on these units offered wholesale to retailers will be $699.99. We expect the retail pricing to be about $999. We are offering a special price for one unit each to current (as of March 3, 2019) Carver site members (until the end of March 2019.) That price is 569.99 plus actual insured shipping from 30233 (plus sales tax if applicable.) This price includes a custom made double wall shipping box with dense foam inserts to prevent any damage in shipping and it should be reusable. Technical features of the LP1 Line stage tube preamp: double thickness printed circuit board to prevent flex or damage from repeated tube insertions for those who love to roll tubes! double thickness copper traces on pcb 4" height allows buyer to use 12AX7 tubes with adapter if desired uses ultra low noise, minimum 5000 hour life 6N2-EV mil spec tubes that have much lower microphonic levels and lower floor noise than even the best 12AX7s available Cardas audio grade silver solder used for the entire build Tube rectified power supply high quality sealed ALPS potentiometer volume control heavy (16) gauge powder coated steel case on all sides audio grade capacitors... MKP, Panasonic and Wima used in the audio path carbon comp resistors selected to optimize audio quality and used in specific locations where carbon comps produce a higher quality sound in tube applications. Allen Bradleys are used in most cases. ground plane grid for lower floor noise Regulated and fully adjustable DC power used for all audio tube filament voltages. This is rarely found even in the most expensive units relay switched inputs RCA shorting plugs included for unused inputs heavy duty heat sink on filament voltage regulation transistor custom wound power transformer gold plated RCA jacks thick custom anodized aluminum faceplate We think it sounds great, too. Feedback about the early units produced: “freaking awesome” “first impression is wow!” “I am BLOWN away with the 275/10 Octave combination. It’s as good as anything I’ve ever heard.” “Sounds better than my Sunfire.” "This is an amazing preamp. I think I've finally got a system together that I'm really happy with. It pairs perfectly with the 275." member buyer in Illinois, "Sounds great.. Have the factory 12AX7s in the 350s and its very nice. Enjoying the hell out of it!" member buyer in Arizona, "I installed it in a test system and it sounds great." "it’s a superbly made, well crafted instrument!" Trav0810's review: To order please send iamjohngalt a private message and include your email and cell/text contact so we can make arrangements for payment, manufacture, and shipment.

  10. Make that "sold items" unless you want to see a lot of high asking prices that didn't sell ;^)
  11. Happy Birthday, Wayne. Wish you many more 🎂
  12. Welcome and thanks for all the tube tutoring, Bill.
  13. Great Karma, Dennis. It would help me get mt broken amps working again. Please include me IN this karma.
  14. I recommend use of Windows 7. Win 10 includes code to eliminate any data privacy on your computer. MSFt takes your private data, sells it to anyone who wants it, and it will definitely end up in the hands of nefarious government agencies. They do this with your consent as the contract you agree to by using W10 allows them to do so. It is still possible to use W7 and to update it while excluding the invasive code that MSFT repeatedly forces down users throats. I don't want my computer feeding the monsters that seek to enslave me. The federal government has been such a monster for over 100 years.
