    A Star Is Born

    I saw it tonight and loved it. Although talented either way, I find Stephanie Germanotta (Lady Gaga without the outlandish makeup) much more appealing.

    Hi from Northern VA

    Welcome Tony, You've come to the right place for all things Carver. I don't own any M500's myself (dang, I wish) so I can't answer your question about the power switch. I have (3) TFM amps driving my system, all of which are turned on and off from a switched power strip. Even though the three amps are powered from the same power strip, the amps' internal relays are never in sync-- so it doesn't cause a drop out when I turn on the power strip. Anyway.... no problems with that setup.

    I enjoy reading AudioXpress because it's mostly DIY articles.

    Hello Everybody

    Welcome Bill, I have a bunch of those TFM-25's... not the most popular of the Carver amps but they sure sound sweet.

    long time lurker ....

    Welcome Eric, You picked a good amp to drive those stats... many amps can't survive the load. There are a few of us ESL enthusiast here -- always good to welcome another. Looking forward to some pics!

    Hey all

    Welcome Tim, The TFM-25 is a very sweet sounding amp (I have five of them). That's an old amp now and may be due for a recap. I have an updated parts list for a full recap and -2 Service Bulletin reliability upgrade if you ever need it... just PM me.

    Quantum Mechanics - Interesting video

    It gets curiouser and curiouser: I won't attempt to explain Bell's Theorem (John Stewart Bell's 1964 conjecture regarding the 'EPR experiment')-- only that it's recently been verified correct (Google Alain Aspect-- the 'Aspect Experiment'); which proved that photons with entangled spin states communicate faster than light speed, in violation of Special Relativity. Taken to its logical conclusion, Bell's 1964 Theorem implies that everything in our universe is interconnected to such an extent that a rain drop falling to earth produces a corresponding resonance in every star.

    It NEVER snows in Savannah GA

    We got 5" this time and the airport was closed yesterday and today-- not sure if it's re-opened yet, in fact.

    It NEVER snows in Savannah GA

    We in Savannah all a bunch of pussys driving in the snow too. My workplace closed down today and just just announced closing tomorrow too (with pay)-- so I'm starting to love this snow!
