    Here are some more pics of the modded Amazing Platinum's that I picked up. I have them hooked up to a stock C-11 and a stock M-1.0t with a Marantz CD 5004

    Hi there, corkdust here, I belonged to the other Carver site and recognize some of the names on here. Main system is a C-4000, an Oppo DV980H, a Tx-11 tuner, running through two M-1.5 t's into a pair of Infinity Column II's. In the spare bedroom is a Tl-3200, a C-1 going through a PT-2400 into Amazings. Dvd watching is an 895 running a pair of CV AT 15's. Other carver stuff in the garage. Good to back!

    Sounds tasty! We have all but the cherries and will try that in the morning🤔 If we’ll be entertaining, Ill put a small 8 quart cooler (or 2) in the freezer the night before. For the festivities, this has been the most popular concoction: Blender 1/3 full of ice 1/3 cup of tequila (I usually use Cuervo Gold) 1/3 cup of sweet n sour mix 1/3 can of crushed pineapple 2-3 good scoops of pineapple sherbet blend until smooth repeat until cooler is full use a ladle to serve and enjoy! The pre-frozen cooler will keep this frozen for hours. And keeps me from being enslaved to the kitchen.

    Five Finger Death Punch F8 was released on February 20, 2020. FFDP is my favorite metal band, hands down, finger(s) up. "Nothing engenders vitriol and scorn quite like success. By this point, everybody has pretty much decided whether they like FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH or not. One of the virtues of having such a recognizable sound is that there isn't much scope for sitting on the fence here: whether you regard the Las Vegas arena regulars as one of modern metal's ultimate good-time bands, or a seemingly indestructible throwback to the knuckleheaded horrors of early '00s "wrestling metal", it's difficult to listen to any of 5FDP's music to date without picking a side. And, as you might expect, "F8" is no different. But what the band's detractors continue to ignore is that this juggernaut is not stopping any time soon, and after a few years of interpersonal turmoil and vocalist Ivan Moody's very public fall and rise, the spotlight shining on album number eight is brighter than ever."

    Swamp Dogg's Sorry You Couldn't Make It was released on March 6, 2020. "Jerry Williams Jr. knows how to tell a colorful story because he’s lived one. Ever since a revelatory psychedelic experience in the late 1960s, the 77-year-old musician and producer has issued some two dozen volumes of far-out funk and soul explorations as his larger-than-life alter ego, Swamp Dogg. Billed as Williams’ country album, Sorry You Couldn’t Make It hits its thematic marks within funkified arrangements. “I’d Rather Be Your Used to Be” and “Sleeping Without You Is a Dragg” are exemplary tearjerkers; “Family Pain” addresses the intergenerational fractures of poverty and addiction. “A Good Song,” meanwhile, feels like a zoomed-in update to Tom T. Hall’s plainly gorgeous “I Love.” You can read the rest of the review here...

    I gave the moPlats a good workout today, and I decided the stock M-1.0t just doesn't have enough horsepower to drive them well. I shuffled some amps around, moved an oppo 103 into the mix, scooted the woofer banks out a little further from the wall, and the bass improved. I like these alot for housework music. I can crank them up, hear them everywhere in my humble abode, and I don't have to sit in the sweet spot to really enjoy them. I imagine that I'll be sending a couple more M-1.0ts to get the mkII opt002 treatment so I can bi-amp them. With 8 12" woofers, a great deal of power, there should be bass that can be felt in the nether regions, like next door.

    Einstein only postulates light has the same speed c in all rest frames, and laws of physics are same in all rest frames. I don't believe in FTL either. However without it, there would be no sci-fi movies.

    Some news that's getting better; They have taken Charles Jr out of ICU and is now in his own room. He continues to improve although he very sore. If things continue, they are contemplating releasing him Friday or Saturday as they have just about hit the limit as to what they can do. Consensus is that he will heal faster at home with family. Keep those fingers crossed....🤞

    Connie Han, Iron Starlet will be released on June 12, 2020. "A decisively brazen talent, pianist Connie Han rushes into the fire touched off by her 2018 Mack Avenue debut Crime Zone, bringing more accelerant to bear on Iron Starlet. With an exhilarating control of her skills and vision and an intimate clairvoyance into all that has come before her, Han bids trumpeter Jeremy Pelt the opening fanfare for the album's flag track, thus clearing headspace for Han, bassist Ivan Taylor and drummer/producer/musical director Bill Wysaske to swoop in like a trio of Lockheed SR-71 Blackbirds, and it's all hands on deck. Piano and drums are locked in tight and tighter, (even during Han's torched solo does Wysaske solo more than accompany). Pelt, with an upper tone and stylistic range embodying Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard concurrently, falls perfectly into Han's kindling blueprint: that when past meets future both coexist and co-create and for Iron Starlet. It's game on from there." You can read the rest of the review here... Ms. Han

    Shadowdream, Jazz Soundtracks For Embalming was released on April 10, 2020. This is a very haunting, dark metal album, yet it's musical, symphonic, and it doesn't make me want to kill myself (or anyone else, for that matter). I do enjoy this, and the use of a thunderstorm on Thy Light. Shadowdream's comments on this album: "About six years ago when I met Carlo Bellotti and signed to his label, I could not imagine that the possibility of working what you enjoy with people whom you respect is possible, but that certainly was and is in this case. During the production for this album, it was not just the anxiety with creation of music, playing and recording, but with the investigation of many crimes and murders in order to get the best musical atmosphere to describe them. During the recording in 2017 and 2018 I have managed to talk with people who were and are committed to mental institution, some with criminal past, others who were abused, and that brought a lot of much needed raw emotion to the album. Therefore, this album is a fictional story inspired by real-life events and experiences. And, besides this, without Carlo’s support and amazing production by Dimitrije Mladenovic, this magnum opus would not be possible. “Jazz Soundtracks for the Embalming” is an album I am very proud of in many aspects, but mainly because I truly feel that it is “Film without a picture”. And because it is part of Epictronic catalogue."

    Niels Lan Doky's River Of Time was released on April 3, 2020. "Danish pianist Niels Lan Doky emerged in the 1980s and is long since a global jazz star even if there has not been an album out in a while. The invaluable discography site Discogs lists the last record out under his own name as 2011's Human Behaviour. Comprised completely of his own originals, the River of Time tunes are excellent, and initial impressions suggest massive sophistication in an Ahmad Jamal lineage, covering terrain that Jacky Terrasson also often navigates at least when Terrasson turns more classic."

    Quin Krantz' Conviction of Faith was released on April 10, 2020. For me, this is worth a listen, but it won't make it to my regular playlist. You may love it or not, choice is yours, and of course no judgement. The only review I can find is from a questionable download site, so I'll only briefly quote them here. "The quinquanz, which debuted in 2018, is a contemporary jazz band of 5 people from Nagoya.In this work, a new generation of talented drummer, Hiroshi Kimura, who is active in the JAZZ scene in Tokyo, joins the band to listen to a new direction and the expanse of the band sound.In addition, junko, a guest vocalist and vocalist, uses a clear voice and a voice with no lyrics.I would like you to feel the sound of the next generation of the band that combines the music with the strong story and the unique interplay of jazz through the current work."

    Tesla's Five Man London Jam was released on March 27, 2020. "The MTV Unplugged TV show debuted about a year before Tesla’s Five Man Acoustical Jam album, so it’s technically unfair to give Tesla credit for kicking off the 1990s unplugged phenomenon, but Tesla’s chart-topping live acoustic album demonstrated the potential of the unplugged format, if a band was willing to reconsider its catalog in a thoughtful way. Acoustical Jam is great because Tesla chose appropriate songs (their own, but a solid selection of covers), reworking them in smart ways. And 30 years later, Tesla is going back to the live, mostly unplugged well, with Five Man London Jam, a reboot of Five Man Acoustical Jam that proves the band is somehow immune to the ravages of time."

    A Conversation With Alice and When One Door Opens are the first two official releases of an upcoming Joe Bonamassa album that is yet unnamed. "Joe Bonamassa has surprised fans with the release of a new single, A Conversation With Alice. The track was released last Friday (17 April) and is the first to come off the bluesman’s forthcoming record, recorded earlier this year at famed Abbey Road Studio A." "When One Door Opens once again sees Bonamassa joined by members of his side project, The Sleep Eazys – made up of drummer Anton Fig (Late Night With David Letterman), keyboardist Reese Wynans (Double Trouble) and bassist Michael Rhodes. Both tunes will appear on Bonamassa’s upcoming album, set to arrive later this year, but they’re still unnamed at this point." You can read the rest of the review of A Conversation With Alice here...

    Bring that boy home !!! Hospitals are awesome for the repair work but real healing is best done at home. Great to hear that he is recovering so well. Being young and physically strong with quick recovery abilities is something I took for granted until I got old !!! 🤣

    Completely understand about the time thing and sitting around too long. Just didn't know if sitting around for a few months would effect them very much.

    Electrolytic capacitors degrade over time. They degrade fastest when no forming voltage is applied (out of circuit, just sitting in storage). While you can still purchase viable NOS semiconductor devices, the same can't be said of electrolytics; it's much better to purchase when needed rather than storing for the future

    A good example of headline manipulation; start with a falsehood that most people can agree on (that Einstein says you can't), then pretend to be teaching them something the've heard since grade school, but have probably forgotten. Pandering to expectation bias; It's not just for politics

    Very comforting to learn that he is showing this kind of improvement and will continuing praying for a full recovery. Hang tough during these challenging times with the knowledge that the whole community is keeping you, your family and your son in their prayers.
