  1. Hi all, i'm Paolo from Rome (Italy) a great fan of Bob Carver's amplifications, former owner of an M-1.5t and now of a TFM35x. I like music, i'm an electronic technician and my hobby is to restore old vintage hi-fi devices.

  2. Hello All I purchased my Carver gear in the early 1980's, and I am still using it to this very day! I look forward to collaborating with you in the future.

  3. I've made it a point over the last few years to seek manuals that aren't in the database, and when I find them (assuming the price is affordable), I've been buying an original copy and donating it to the site. I just aquired an M-0.5t with the original owners manual. The site does not have a copy of the manual in the database. Would The Carver Site like a copy? In the past year I've been reaching out to @dennismiller55 and sending him the manual to scan. Dennis are you still the manual czar? Let me know. In this case I think I'll keep the origin

  4. My first was KISS. December 1976 at the Capital Center, outside DC. I was 14, in the 8th grade at the time. Our dad dropped us off and picked us up after. Me, my two brothers, my cousin. (Why do we take so long realizing how cool our dads are)? My older brother was a huge fan. I liked them well enough, but they weren’t really my thing. But for a rock concert in the 70s, it was downright epochal. My main memory from the show – other than the musty fog of weed so thick it veiled everything in the huge arena and the pyrotechnics, of course – was the open

  6. Hi guys, i am Francesco, 43 years old, married with one 6 years old son. I am a marketing consultant and trainer, i live close to Bologna the town of tortellini, mortadella, lasagne and many other cuisine masterpieces. I recently introduced a C1 preamp in my setup because i am going to introduce a tuner and a CD player in my setup in addition to my flac/wav files. Power amplifier is a slightly upgraded SAE A501 and my speakers are italian's RCF SCD6000. I am wondering to work on it with BillD upgrade and i would like to know something more about holographic tool on the pre

  8. I've lost track..., may have been all the alcohol back in the day..., most of my early concerts were of the "Bar Scene" type. But one summer was filled with early experience concerts including Boston, REO Speedwagon, Journey, Van Halen... when "Arena Rock" was not yet called "Arena Rock." Saw Journey in the round, as well as Boston, both at the domed "Assembly Hall" on the campus of University of Illinois - now called "State Farm Center" Most memorable was getting lucky and seeing Muddy Waters at his namesake bar called "Muddy Watters," on Lacledes Landing in St Louis

  9. Paul Revere and the Raiders. Dallas Nov. 26 1966. The opening band for them was The Doors! I was never quite the same from that point forward.

  10. Those little LRS speakers are so much better than I was expecting that I had to upgrade the supporting cast. Today the UPS man handed me a conrad-johnson MF2275 amplifier which sat in an unopened box in a warehouse for the past 7 years. I've got some preamps to play with but I think a deHavilland UltraVerve 3 is the match for these little guys. The sound is just right from top to bottom and for what I'm using them for (fairly nearfield listening) the amp isn't breaking a sweat. Here's a pic of the temporary lash up which looks like the house is disappearing into a sink hol

  11. I've been looking forward to arrival of this recording in the mailbox. There is a dividing point, according to my wife: Pat Metheny + Lyle Mays v. Metheny post-Mays. This has the sonic signature, compositional style–the taste–of Mays with Metheny. I think it is marvelous. And, recorded before an audience, the sonics are impeccable. Read more here.

  12. Thanks All! After significant delays, I suspect were largely due to the Afghanistan pull out, I'm awaiting final orders for a one year assignment back in Kuwait. My departure date is set for 24SEP2021. I'll be keeping in touch, but leaving all my audio gear in the states. I do plan on searching the local market for used gear, but electronics are 220v following the British standard. Maybe I can find some neat speakers worth repairing and shipping back. I appriciate the birthday wishes. Thanks all! Will

  13. I love my Ortofon 2M Black. It's very detailed, and I use less tracking force than I did with the Bronze. It's also a plug and play switch with the Bronze as they use the same body.

  14. Lay it on the line is a bad ass song. I have one of their live CD's and it is a really good one. Another time I seen Triumph and Loverboy together I think in Kalamazoo MI. Talking about a laser show, WOW.

  15. First concert was Supertramp, Bryan Adams and the Payola's in BC Place Vancouver in '83. Couldn't believe how close to the record they sounded...and BC place had horrible acoustics! Favourite concert is a tough one... I've been fortunate to see quite a few, (Heart, Queensryche, Van Halen, RUSH, David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, etc...) but really enjoyed Def Leppard in the round at the Saddledome in Calgary (first made eye contact with my future wife there)!

  16. The other night I was listening to The White Album (the white cd?) and the guitar intro to Revolution came blasting out at me. I like blasting guitars and have fallen in with a bad lot who put ideas in my empty head. Maybe I need to empty my wallet as well? OKAY! Should be here next week, conrad-johnson CT-5

  25. M-0.5t OM scanned and sent in to Dennis. I'll continue to keep my eyes open for other manuals. It's getting harder to find docs that aren't in the database and my thoughts are that as the years go by its only going to get tougher.

  26. So much to see in Rome and so much good food to eat there; combine that with a Carver amp and oh my! 🙂 I agree with Pat Adams, best vacation of my life.

  27. As usual, I'm filling the role of heretic and some would likely claim, village idiot. I have long been fond of the sound from Grado's. I also have a couple of AT's (I have no clue where the 2nd one came from), but while they are clear and precise, there's no warmth, and they feel somewhat lifeless to me. Tag, you're IT! Yes, you! Whomever you are, foolish enough to be reading this!

  29. Welcome! I'm an amateur hobbist and greatly appriciate the opinions and expertise from technicians that post on this site. I've been partcipating on this site for about 2 years. I really like the people and the learning opportunities provided on this site. Always entertaining and educational. By the way, another gentleman from Italy posts here, @Casaletti. He's posted some great information on upgrading the C-16 preamp. I really like reading his posts. Welcome aboard!

  30. I have been working on the stash and finally have a batch that are working. I haven't gone through and done any extensive cleaning or parts replacing. Only the parts that I needed to make them work have been replaced, Some new and some used ( Parts ). The cosmetics are not perfect but for the most part they are in decent condition and the faceplates and knobs are in pretty good shape. I want to list them here so if members are interested, you all have first look. Arrangements can be made to ship to any tech you want and if you agree with Greg and Jenny to do your service then I ca

  31. My favorite is a Shure V-15-II I have a few of the Shure V-15-III with jaco sis and a few others and I should be picking one of them but I like and prefer the v-15-II sound. I think it is because that is what I had in the old days (could not afford the top dog III) and am just used to it?

"A fresh and open music, delicate and space-conscious, is shaped as drummer Thomas Strønen and Ayumi Tanaka, previously heard in the ensemble Time Is A Blind Guide on Lucus, resurface in a new trio with clarinettist/singer/percussionist Marthe Lea. The group first came together at Oslo’s Royal Academy of Music, where for two years the players would meet each week for exploratory music making. Strønen: 'We always played freely- drifting between elements of contemporary classical music, folk music, jazz, whatever we were inspired by. Sometimes the music was very quiet and minimalistic: playing t

  35. My First concert was 1975 I was 12 and had a paper route to do in the early morning but took the city bus with 3 others to see lynyrd skynyrd at the seattle coliseum. Pretty rowdy lots of people passed out from drugs all over big huge garbage bins the cops filled with all the stuff they took at the doors. Loved it lol!

  36. I don't know if you could run a guitar through it but I could certainly plug in a turntable. https://www.stereophile.com/tubepreamps/706cj/index.html I think the 17LS is going to make its way upstairs. The only thing it's missing is a tape loop but it does have a home theater bypass which I'll never use.

  40. Very Cool Idea - one that I have been pondering for years. Don't forget to take into consideration that TT's need to be perfectly level (you have carpet under that extended shelf)... I'm not trying to be a PITA - just dealing with a few TT issues, myself, that are very specific and corrected by leveling. And, thought I'd mention it in case you might encounter some of the same issues. I've always wanted a shelf idea like that..., and was approaching it with some of the super heavy-duty drawer-slide hardware now available for hard-core use (like that in draw

  41. System update. After thinking about it for a while, I worked out a way to have better access to my turntable. Unfortunately it means putting my unused Carver amps into storage. I have added a 19" rack mount sliding shelf to my system stand. This way the turntable can be stored neatly out of the way then pulled out for use. I still have to purchase a suitable piece of MDF board for the turntable to rest on but we are currently in lockdown so it may take a few weeks to get it. I will cover the MDF with felt contact and also cover the stands uprights to prevent the turntable getting scuffed

  44. White Moth Black Butterfly, The Cost of Dreaming was released on May 28, 2021. "The album is a very clever integration of contemporary pop with the stylistic flourishes of progressive rock and ambient, experimental music. Catchy hooks abound along with lush orchestral notes and edgy keyboard infused electronica. All the songs are short, like perfect little gems of musical wonder, never outstaying their welcome."

  45. Alexa Tarantino, Firefly was released on April 16, 2021. "Fronting a quintet which includes vibraphonist and label mate Behn Gillece and keyboardist Art Hirahara, Tarantino, plays alto and soprano saxophones, flute and clarinet, making a music which has a feeling of a release of positivity, of pent-up feelings and ideas being given voice with the easing of a post-pandemic isolation. The disc opens with Hirahara's "Spider's Dance," a luminescent reverie, with the leader sounding particularly inspired, The arrangement— the back and forth of piano, vibes and saxophone solos—is as clos
