    TELL ME EXACTLY WHERE I PERSONALLY ATTACKED ANYONE. I WAS SIMPLY STATING MY OPINION. I AM NOT, I REPEAT, I AM NOT DEFENDING RK. I SAID IN THE START OF THIS THREAD, BASED UPON WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD, THAT THERE MAY BE EXTENUATING REASONS NOT PREVIOUSLY STATED TO GIVE SOME CONSIDERATION. THAT'S IT. WHAT BOTHERS ME IS THAT THIS ENTIRE THREAD IS AND ALWAYS WAS A PERSONAL ATTACK LAUNCHED TO PREVENT A RETAILER FROM SELLING A BASIC, NON-ELECTRONIC REPLACEMENT PART, COMPLETELY UNRELATED TO THE ISSUES THAT WERE DREDGED UP IN THIS THREAD. IF I DID THAT TO ANYONE HERE I'D BE SANDBOXED, YET THE FORUM RULES ARE NOT BEING FOLLOWED BECAUSE A MOD POSTED THIS?

    My post HAD NOTHING TO DO with RK. It has EVERYTHING TO DO with forum leadership making personal attacks and saying it's not, when the TOU of this site specifically says DON'T DO IT. If it were me starting this thread about anyone else here, I'd be thrown off the forum already. Many people have left C! In an earlier post WDC said he's gone. WRF walked away, Jim walked away, Trav, Fill, .... So if we don't agree 100% philosophically with people like you we're going to be run off? I've experienced enough of that shit already, which is the major reason I rarely post here anymore also.

    EVERYTHING STATED IS A PERSONAL ATTACK. THE ENTIRE THREAD IS A PERSONAL ATTACK. With the way many of us have been treated here over the years, WHO CARES, WE DON'T KNOW WHO TO TRUST OR BELIEVE ANYMORE ANYWAY.

    OK, so the reason the little ribbon creates more sound per-watt is because the big ribbon on the AL-III has been physically reduced in volume via a resistor within the crossover. The woofer of the AL-III is only 86dB/W efficient so the ribbon must be matched in output by cutting it's efficiency so it will pair with the woofer at all volume levels. The CRM-2 as a similar comparison to the CF speaker is 90dB/W efficient, but the ribbon probably does not require as much attenuation to mate with the side firing drivers (the raw ribbon driver is 94dB/W efficient).

    I don't quite understand the question, are you asking why the CF speakers are not as loud as the AL-III's when driven with the same volume setting?

    The M1.0t if it's non-inverting has about 30dB gain. The M500t has approx. 26 dB gain. The CF speakers are a bit more efficient than the AL-III's mainly because the woofer on the AL-III is reduced efficiency. I would say how you've got it set up with the M500t driving the CF speakers, everything is probably pretty close to balanced in output level.

    I'm not running my ALS ribbons in parallel with CF speakers, but I have run them in a tri-amp configuration with the ALS woofers and Magnepan 55" ribbon tweeters. I'm using the DBX Venu360 as a crossover and for time alignment. Sound is quite good the image is a wider than with the ALS ribbons but a little less detailed/precise in location. Yes, moving the ALS forward should get you closer in time alignment to the CF speakers. Measure the distance from listening position to the drivers the closer to all being the same distance the better; unless a bit of time delay improves the 'holography'. I would start with them all at the same distance from listening position and then adjust forward/back to find the best overall sound.

    I'm confused. I thought the MK-II mod was considered open source. Maybe not. I also thought he was given a lifetime ban from this forum, kinda hard to 'associate himself' with the forum members if he's banned from being here. Afghanistan is a long way from being able to fix someone's amp. Civilian contractor or military, I'd rather not go to that shithole to work, but he did on behalf of US. JMO

    I don't see anyone saying that the Black C-1 faceplate, C-1 anthracite replacement, MK-II, or Black MK-II faceplates he is selling on eBay are copies of theirs. He went out and got them MFR'd on his own, and that is good for Carver owners who want an update, replacement, or MK-II labeled faceplate; and that is the only reason I give any support to these items (for Carver OWNERS).
  11. Have you tried talking to the folks over at http://forums.slimdevices.com/ Logitech stopped supporting the Squeezebox hardware, but there are a great number of people still using the products and several are still developing software for it. Once up/running my Transporter has been trouble free. I have more issues with the Mac that runs the server software than the unit (always asking if I want to "allow" the Transporter to connect).
