  1. Hi There- my name is Dave, on the downhill side of life - I have a Carver M-1.0t with NAD 7175PE as a pre pushing some Ohm Model I's - Runs good and sounds great, never a problem. In that is the way it is, I didn't know this site existed until I came into possession of a MXR130 which has some issues and need some TLC. I'm mostly on AK but I'm usually pretty busy so I don't spend s much time on forums as like. I'm kinda of novice at repairs(dangerous but learning) and appreciate feedback on my projects. Anyway, hello again, nice to be here.

  2. But your jokes are just not funny... no need to slam those of faith in a NON-Political thread... That was the main point I have tried to convey. But you just don't seem to follow the context of this thread - in any of your responses. Not a snowflake here - but do like to call out the inappropriateness of your responses. Why don't you start an Orange Man Bad - There is no God thread OR ... monitor your ratio of audio related to stupid shit you post. So unimpressive

  3. Several months ago, a gentleman called for directions for service on his vintage Carver amp.. He lives in WA.. He told me a story about his aunt owning a house just outside the Carver factory in Lynnwood. Bob bought the house from his aunt and converted it into a daycare center for the Carver employees. I mentioned this to Bob and he said they always had daycare, and he hired licensed teachers to work with the kids. " It was great to have the little ones near, and know they were well taken care of." What a comfort that must have been to the parents working for Carver Corp.. Win/win.. Ahead of his time. So much more than a Physics PhD and brilliant electronics designer.

  4. My very first system was a Sanyo quad receiver with a shot volume pot, so i had to get it set where there was sound from all speakers, then adjust volume with the 4 individual channel trim pots! It was running into a pair of speakers I built from a pair of Jensen 6x9 triax out of a car. Here's the Sanyo (Not mine, internet image) My first REAL system was a JVC receiver (with 5 band EQ!) into some BIC Venturi formula 6 speakers w/ 8" woofers. Source was a Fischer dual cassette deck. Images off internet - not my actual gear...

  6. The Doobie Brothers, Liberté was released on October 1, 2021. "Liberté, the band’s first new release in seven years, finds Doobies mainstays Tom Johnston, Pat Simmons, and John McFee making their first studio foray in seven years, and ready to roll out on tour with Michael McDonald back in the band as well. Liberté finds the Grammy-winning band and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees reviving the signature sound they honed prior to McDonald’s arrival. Echoes of the early classics “Listen to the Music,” “Rockin’ Down the Highway,” “Taking It to the Streets,” and “China Grove” dominate the album, with several tracks—“Oh Mexico,” “Wherever We Go,” “Easy,” and “Just Can’t Do This Alone” in particular—serving as flashbacks of sorts, as if they were rescued from the vault, recently resurfaced and newly revived."

  9. Robin Trower, No More Worlds to Conquer was released on April 29, 2022. "Boundless British guitar maestro Robin Trower takes us up into the heavens once again on his new album No More Worlds To Conquer. The record comes out April 29th, 2022 on the Provogue/Mascot Label Group imprint and finds the 76-year-old Trower still pushing himself to his limits and beyond. The record jumps off with the cracking “Ball Of Fire,” a crunchy, insistent mid-tempo track that is absolutely drenched in gorgeous Strat tones and Richard Watts’ emotive vocals. Trower’s playing has long had some Hendrix to it but he mixes that inspiration with his own lines and feels to arrive at a style that’s transfixing and expressive. He puts it down here like a blues/rock hero fully connected to the source of his flow." You can read the rest of the review here...

  10. I wasn't sure if it would work out or not but I took a chance on OTD's Motorola based amp and it was exactly what my old Stax Sigmas needed - they sound world's better than they did plugged into a Stax tube amp. Here it is: amp, Rega Saturn, Stax Sigma - this is as close as I'll ever get to the ultimate bedroom headphone system, they just sound fantastic.

  11. Itch, I'm sorry to say that you have it so very very wrong and backwards. Most atheists consider belief to be a fundamental aspect of life and a key element for those people who believe - not something to be looked down on at any time. Religion, however, is a totally different thing - it's all too often something that acts to control and dominate people through their beliefs. Most may start innocently, but rarely do they remain that way. Hold tight to your beliefs, whatever beliefs they may be - they make you who you are, and that's a good thing. 🙂 'nuff said on the matter - move on to the humour, and if you don't, I'll post a real picture of myself and you will all wind up in therapy!!!! 🙀

  12. Thanks for proving my point so perfectly. True Christians do not tell anyone they are going anywhere - that is between each individual and God. Luke 6:27 - “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.” As far as your Ezekiel reference, you have solidified my observation that atheists, for the most part, are ignorant of the intent of the language and messaging within the Bible. That passage is a metaphor - but you don't really care so its intent is meaningless to you.

  17. I dunno..., Seems to me that stating common knowledge..., like "tapes degrade over time." isn't MoFi's responsibility..., doesn't everyone over 40 years old know that audio (and VCR) tapes degrade? And, to make excellent recordings on vinyl, from master tapes, something technological has to be applied? I had a private meeting at AXPONA 3 years ago with the One-Step engineer working on the Yes album. I'm connected on LinkedIn with him. He didn't hide the fact that the ONLY thing a logical person could conclude was to produce these records required using "tools and technology that addressed 20-40 years of degradation." (Yes, I'm oversimplifying - because it doesn't matter - to me.) Was it proprietary? I don't know - but it could be, and I don't care. I'm not one to pick nits - because, in the end, the records sound damn good. I knew they were pricey - but the great sound was worth it. And, well, I have better things to do with my time. Seems some people posting ad nauseum on all these forums with limited understanding and/or hidden agendas connect the dots in a way to feel "wronged." Isn't this an audiophile version of a "karen." (Not unlike the non-listening-to-how-it-sounds-folks over on ASR.) Perhaps a better response would be to develop a competing method, cut operational cost, and use capitalism and a competitive response to MoFi with a competing product that lowers consumer prices? (Just one thought that comes to me on this.) Instead, the karen's start criticizing... Like I said, I dunno, I did read the lawsuit, and YMMV. This is one of only a very few posts I've ever shared on this subject..., I keep it simple. The rest doesn't matter because "these MoFi albums sound damn good." And that's good enough for me. I hope they don't stop producing them, or some court ruling doesn't side with karen, and affect their satisfying a market who likes what they have done. A good philosophy: Everyone should be careful what they ask for..., they might just get it, and the collateral damage to others, that don't see it their way - that never turns out well.

  18. Switch V2 and V3 tubes and see if the noise follows the tube to the other channel. (keep track of the tubes at first one switch is easy but when you start getting pissed and switching you might lose track) If you aren't using the tone controls turn the contour switch off. If noise follows to right channel then switch V1 tube with the noisy one. Just because a tube makes noise in a Sunfire doesn't make it bad it might be perfectly fine in another preamp the Sunfire is picky and hard on Tubes.

  19. Thank you, @Ar9Jim. The best line in John's rant is (I think)..., "...High Power, Low Power, Vacuum Tube, Solid State, Single Ended, Push Pull..., there are all manner of amplifier topologies in my little group of amplifiers that I love and that I consider GREAT SOUNDING amplifiers." His focus is about "Great Sound." A few more interesting and revealing videos on Devon Turnbull's OJAS..., for those that are following - and yes, I would have loved to drop in on the studio show in NYC referenced. I'm sure that would have been an experience. In the Audiophiliac's interview, you can almost sense Devon doing his best not to reveal the character of the "naysayers" that undoubtedly were in the room, and that he encountered..., and, instead, taking a higher-road, and focusing on the sound, and those that valued the experience. Devon is not afraid to share what he does and is into. And, he sells kits..., anyone here ever build one?
