  1. Aja is one of my all-time favorite album and have been listening to its seven-odd tracks at least once week since '78 when I first heard it on my brod-in-law's system. Still have my vinyl, regular cd, and a remastered cd. I can't imagine how the sound could be improved any further given its already excellent sound but if prices of ultra-hi def versions become more affordable, I won't hesitate to go for one. It has become to me like The Beatles' Rubber Soul where I already could hear in my mind the first notes of the next track. You folks know what I mean. Steve Gadd's short
  2. Happy Birthday, Kev. Wishing you many more years of audio nirvana. Have a great day!
  3. 🧨 ✨ 🎆🎇 🎄 ✨ 🎄✨ 🍹🍸 HAPPY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!!!🥂
  4. Welcome to the Carver site, kababayan! Good to know a fellow Pinoy Carver fan. It would be nice to have more Pinoys who enjoy this wonderful hobby hanging out in this fun site. Do you have your gear running on 110v. with a stepdown transformer? I have my system there hooked on a 3K Watts Meiji AVR , an over-kill but better safe than sorry. I'll probably take my M1.5t with me when it's safe to visit again. As you probably have found out already, there's a lot of info on your amps in the site. Lots of nice and knowledgeable folks, too. Enjoy
  5. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHARLIE. HAVE A GREAT DAY!
  6. Thank you very much, my dear friends! I've been celebrating the day looking for some gremlin on my BillD C1 mod, lol! Been getting plenty of clues from the maestro himself - Wayne(wrf). Gain jumps when SH button is pressed. Thanks for all the good wishes!
  7. Warm welcome from warm, er.....SoCal! If you're into this "thing of ours", there's no better place to be. But beware: if you haven't seen it on CNN, there's a site-grown malaise called the OCCD virus that is much more virulent than that less contagious -19. In fact, the CDC and Dr Fauci have raised the white flag and accepted defeat-no vaccine in sight for at least 100 years. Makes your immune system totally ineffective against enablers like kve777, Daddyjt, Sk1Bum, and other hopeless carriers. No economic stimulus will help maintain peace with the wife,
  8. Was it Mr. Jimmy, Greg? Those guys are fantastic! I haven't heard them live but watching their You Tube videos will tell you why the original Jimmy is a fan himself. And their frontman has Robert's range and voice quality. Since they try to, and are capable of playing the songs note for note like the original, they indeed would make you think they're better than the Zep. To be fair, the latter as far as I could tell,, didn't really play their songs live as they recorded them.
  9. Congrats, Carter! It will be awesome when you don't have to set up your alarm clock before you go to bed, lol!
  10. HAPPY NEW YEAR, FOLKS!!! Wishing every one immunity to hearing loss, renewed drive and vigor in amassing more totally unnecessary but must-have Carver equipment, and last but not least, may OCCD be with your wives/partners (some of you, anyway)!
  11. HAPPY HOLIDAYS, FOLKS!!! ? ? MAY ALL YOUR AUDIO WISHES BE GRANTED.
  12. It's been a steady progression in sound quality of recordings of the same old, and occasional newer music, that I listen to. From the lp to the cd to some remastered and sacd versions. Unfortunately, a remaster does not necessarily sound better occasionally. Just bought The Doors' debut album. It sounds harsh to me. But for the most part, my remastered purchases were well worth it.Take for instance my small Fab Four collection. Bought all their lp's when I came to the States and later bought the MoFi boxed collection that mostly remained boxed as the cd soon took over. Excitedly b
  13. This is an easy one....DIGITAL. Vinyl surface had always bothered me (it still does) that trips to Tower Records on Sunset Blvd. to exchange noisy lp's were a regular part of life... until '83. I still have my Sony CDP-302, which was preceded by one whose model number now escapes me. Have since jumped to the oppo bandwagon with the 971, 981, and 83SE, all purchased well beyond their expiry dates. Went through a platoon of portables I listened to at work until I bought a couple of Creative Lab Nomad Zen Xtra mp3 players for the convenience. Haah, no more
