  1. Even though they have left the business, I can't sing the praises of oppo players enough. I have four of them. The top tier players 203, 205 have quadruped in price since oppo left the business. The 103, 105 are still affordable. You can get a 103 for about $400, and the 105 is moving up pretty fast. The 105s are getting to the $900-1K range. The 103 shares the analog RCA outputs for multi channel and stereo. The 105 has dedicated stereo outputs in both RCA and XLR. The oppo will play CD, sacd, DVD-a, DVD, blueray, mp3, flac, ogg, and many other digital formats. It has both cable and wireless network capabilities, some built in streaming apps, Netflix, Tidal, YouTube, and a few others. oppo still supports the players, and you can find out a lot more here: http://www.oppodigital.com Good luck with your search.
  2. Orrin Evans, The Intangible Between was released on May 1, 2020. "Pianist Orrin Evans has a deep understanding of the unshakeable bond between fellowship, humanity and the creative process. That knowledge has guided him through creating a remarkable catalog of music as both a leader and sideman, along the way, experiencing the fellowship of a collective of musicians he often refers to as "The Village."

  4. Very sad news, and yes, he's one of the finest! Godspeed Mr. Daniels, and keep kickin' devil ass wherever you are.
  5. Hello ORCA SONG, and welcome to thecarversite.com. We're glad you're hear. There is a lot of information here, much technical know how, and a pretty good bunch of folks that are happy to help. My first Carver purchase was an M-400t from House of Sound here in Springfield in 1983. I still have the receipt, box and packing for that amp, and I may still have that amp. I've bought, sold, and traded about a dozen of them. It may have left in the shuffle. Once you get to Novice status, please consider uploading some pics of your gear in the Members Systems area.

  6. The first post in this thread states this is where to be first to get a sticker. I don't always check the chat box. I just shook my head at Greg's spelling too. Young'uns that don't know Hendrix.
  7. Prolly not a good idea to argue over parking spaces either.
  8. Congratulations Will, and thanks for another great karma, Charlie!
  9. Hello Web, and welcome to thecarversite.com. We're glad you're hear. There is a lot of information here, much technical know how, and a pretty good bunch of folks that are happy to help. We have an active tube contingent here, preamps, amps, buffers, cd players... I'm sure y'all will find plenty to chat about. My only foray into tubes is a buffer I run in my external processor loop.

  11. I'll concede a slight weight disadvantage.
  12. Five Alarm Funk, Big Smoke was released on June 26, 2020. "Five Alarm Funk is a horn-powered, percussion-fueled sonic and visual assault. Over 17 years of hard funking the band has burned up stages on four continents, released six studio albums and received two Juno Award nominations (Canadian Grammys). And this ride isn’t about to slow down. Five Alarm Funk is set to release their 7th studio album, Big Smoke in 2020. The 11 tracks get right to the roots of what Five Alarm Funk is all about: epic, intense arrangements, heavy groove and a ton of fun." You can read the rest of the review here...
  13. Luke Elliot, The Big Wind was released on May 8, 2020 "Born and based in New Jersey, this is Luke Elliot’s third album, another collection of brooding grandeur delivered in his deep tones, a bit like Nick Cave or even Jackie Leven at times. Recorded in Oslo with Swedish multi-instrumentalist Bebe Risenfors (a frequent Tom Waits collaborator) and Norwegian guitarist Freddy Holm, the title is a reference to the European storm which, on January 6, 1839, known as the Night of the Big Wind, swept across Ireland and the United Kingdom causing several hundred deaths and here swerving as a metaphor for a personal and professional maelstrom."
  14. Very nice Charlie. I have no need, so I'll sit this one out, but thank you for offering it up!

  17. Le MOOD, Adventures In Stereo was released on March 15, 2020. “Adventures In Stereo,” Le MOOD’s debut full-length LP, is a perfectly crafted indie pop record - upbeat, insightful, infectious, retro, and even a bit psychedelic. The songs are deeply melodic, full of energy and emotion, and showcase the band’s superb songwriting skills. “Adventures In Stereo” was released on Outright Rock Records on CD and limited edition white vinyl. The first single off the album, “Winning Hand,” is a transcendent power-pop anthem about life in the band. The album also features the songs “Silent Night” and “Poor Young & Gifted.” You can read the rest of the review here...

  19. Lettuce, Resonate was released on May 8, 2020. "Trailblazing future-funk squad Lettuce returns with the ambitious Resonate, their second full-length LP in under a year’s time, and the seventh of their illustrious career. Continuing their unicorn evolution in sound, the six-piece points the spacecraft skyward with another searing slab of innovative instrumental dance music." You can read the rest of the review here...
