  1. Now I have a good excuse not to buy them. Thanks.
  2. What failed on you. Maybe it can be fixed.
  3. Replaced with KEF 104/2's. The KEFs were then replaced (many years later) with Thiel CS 2.4s.
  4. 19 years old, starving student soon to graduate. Prowling a shopping mall in Salt Lake City. Heard these playing Cat Stevens. They were set up in a the display window. Was absolutely blown away. Had to have them. Signed up that night to put them on lay away. Called a bank the next day for a loan. I had an impressive job offer in hand (graduated pretty early). Bank said no problem. The day came and the bank said great, who is going to co sign? !@#$@#@#@. You never mentioned that..... Went crawling to my Dad. After extracting several pounds of flesh, he co signed. Set them up in the (shared) apartment. Used their boxes as stands. NEED MORE POWER!! Gonna have to wait. Graduated. Packed the 901's into the back of my VW bug and headed to California. First pay check paid off the loan. Second bought a Phase Linear 400. The rest is history.
  5. Oh my. That was a life time ago. Good to see it's still kicking around.
  6. I've become addicted to tubes. Just finished this M-1.0t mk II and really have no use for it. It should make someone an excellent amp. Likely my last mk II upgrade. Very good cosmetic condition. Passes all the tests at rated power for a mk II amp. Asking $550 plus shipping. Send me a PM if you are interested. MK II Sheet.pdf
  7. I have a recently upgraded Carver C-1 preamp with all the BillD upgrades plus a few extras. It's in good cosmetic shape and performs great on the bench and in my test system.  The basic C-1 features separate left/right tone controls, phono inputs (moving magnet and moving coil) and of course sonic holography imaging. The BillD upgrade replaces roughly 180 parts. All electrolytic caps are replaced. Op amps in the line and phono stage are replaced with OPA2134 devices. All ceramic caps are replaced with upgraded components. All resistors (outside of the power supply and SH) circuits are replaced with 1% metal film resistors to lower the noise floor. I've also added a removable power cord and moved the internal fuse to the rear panel. And of course, a subtle blue LED to mark this C-1 as special. Price is $400 plus shipping from 85255. Shipping to USA only. Send me a PM if you are interested.
