Carverfest 275...10 Octave...Cornsacalas

Recommended Posts

The wife and I have been looking at "new" houses lately. I think we are going to be renting a house well we have repairs and upgrades done on our house to get it ready for sale. I figure, the less stuff I have to move multiple times, the better. Plus any additional capital I can build up to go with our sale to put as a down payment on the new house, will be a bonus. So, I'm actually going to let go of, what has been my favorite system that I've ever owned. That is my Carver fest 275 tube amp. My 10 Octave preamp, and my Crites Cornscala speakers. 

 

The Carver fest 275 performs perfectly, with absolutely no issues at all. I did change the stock 120's out for a quad of vintage RCA 6550's which was a beautiful upgrade (IMHO). The 12 ax 7 has been replaced with Telefunken. When changing in and out the 12AT7 tubes, I never noticed any difference, so I left those with the stock JJ Tesla. $1250 plus shipping.

 

I've done a review on the 10 Octave LP-1 preamp here. It's been my favorite to date. I was easily able to give up my Audio Research LS 5 preamp when I got this one, and I've never regretted the decision. There are other reviews available wood stop on this one. This is a great opportunity for anyone that missed out on the introductory deal when they first released this preamp. $750 plus shipping.

 

Crites Cornscala Type B. these are the latest design with choose the JBL mid-range horn driver. I have personally done no upgrades to these, but they come with the Crites crossovers, the Crites Tweeter and cast woofer that Crites prefers. These have been stained in early American finish. $1400. I'm not really willing to ship these, but would be willing to drive a portion of the way to meet someone if they were interested in purchasing.

Smart Man there Trav! Wish Susan and I would have had the time and I would have sold everything (I mean EVERYTHING) before the move as moving it just screwed everything that was worth a damn and sucked up a lot of money along the way.

Congrads on the new home though-where are you going to?

We are staying in the same area. We bought this house back when we were first starting out. We've outgrown it. We have a teeneager now, and our 1 bathroom isn't cutting it anymore!

Come on guys...

 

That Carverfest 275 amp, especially with the vintage RCA 6550's and Telefunken tubes, is a real bargain @ $1,250.! 💲💲~^

 

Good luck with your move and the gear sales Travis.

Damn, Trav, this post was a few hours after I sent Jim $$$ for a PPA2. 

Thats a hell of a deal, but unfortunately (for me😟) this one has to pass me by.

Oh, and the Conrscalas actually do have the grill boards as well. I have just never had them comfort, so they aren't in the photos with the speakers. You can order the picture to draw grill cloth from Crites

There was a mistake and one original listing. The price for the 10 Octave preamp is supposed to be $650, not $750

I didn't actually sell them. Looks like the move is going to take place quicker than I expected, so it looks like they'll be moving with me!
