  1. Several Carver's should be left behind... MV-5 for example.
  2. STOP IT! The CT-3 just isn't that good. Have one. With the original remote. Disappointing. As it the pair of CT-29V's, and several CT-17's. Rubbish. Point thine ears in a different direction.
  3. Proper speakers are the requisite answer. Something Polk, preferably. M-1.5t's can be bright. McIntosh speakers would be best, but hard to find without a second mortgage on said Schloss...
  4. Welcome! Glad you found us! What upgrades have you made to the TFM-42? That is in my favorite family of amps! I, too am a tube amp tinkerer, more HiFi than guitar. What's your favorite output tube?
  5. Rest in Peace, Bill. Still so missed!
  6. Do you have a Variac? You may destroy it without one.
  7. [Yesterday 7:15 AM] Gregory Oberg Who's gonna send us passive-aggressive emails about the Q today?
  8. [Yesterday 1:06 PM] Douglas Bafaro Can anyone tell me who to contact about equipment failure.
  9. I have one of those! I use it every day. That way the dog can get in and out of the back door without it closing. LOL.
  10. I dub thee "Redneck Audiophile" ! (not in a bad way)
  11. I shall probably die with the most SoundStream.
  12. The NAD phase. I remember those years fondly. You'll get over it!

    Gritting my teeth

    You really need all three sources, Vinyl, Disc and Streaming. If you have the room, and the patience, tape players work, too. Reel, Cassette and 8-Track. Sadly, I have all of those, plus Laser-Disc, AM-FM Tuner, XM Tuner and VHS. Not all in the same place, mind you. I still have to hook up that Quadraphonic system, too. LOL!
  14. Let’s hear what your favorite album is from 1958! Why 58? It’s considered the first year of stereo. In the future I will name other years so hold your other favs. For now just Le’s released in 1958.
  15. Apparently he doesn't have "Magic Ears", like us! Actually it is "Magic Brain", ready to pounce on the least bit of offensive material the ears gather. We have it. They don't. Much easier on the wallet if you don't.
  16. Steve who? Just kidding! Welcome back!
  17. The CT-Seven is running out of OP-AMP driving power. It uses a uPC4570HA-1 opamp for output(IC752). After it are R761/762(1KΩ) and R763/764(100kΩ) as voltage dividers. Theoretically, reducing the value of R761/762 and increasing the value of R763/764 should increase output, BUT! This may allow IC752 to drive at too high a current level.
  18. Sounds like bad replays and dirty switches. Let us know if the other channel comes back after switching the tape monitor switch back and forth a bunch of times and turn the volume way up with balance in the middle and both left and right channels connected to speakers. Don’t put two 901’s on one channel.
  19. Welcome, Jeffery! We can help you with the 6250, What ails it?
