Hello my name is Boris I am from the Netherlands, but live momentarily on Curaçao. 
 

I looked for some time on this forum, to see all those nice Carver gear. 
 

for my self I own some Carver gear too,

tree M500 amplifiers, that I sought and bought online, in broken condition that I repaired and upgraded to mk2 condition. 
and two C1 that I upgraded to Bill D specification. 
 

The M500 amplifiers I use to drive my Vandersteen 2ci loudspeakers, I use 2 in mono block configuration to drive the midsection, and one amplifier to drive the high section of the loudspeakers. 

And one Yamaha M45 to drive 2 Polk audio subwoofers. 

The sound quality of the Carver, is in my ears after some trail and error and tweaking amazing, really love that gear.

WOW! @boris279, you are going to fit right in here!  

 

WELCOME WELCOM WELCOME !!

 

You have gear many of us have, or have had.  Please post pictures.   Do you have the gear with you in Curaçao?

 

Having your Carver Gear can prevent homesickness !  So I've come to understand.

 

When you get a chance, post a picture of your gear!  We love pictures.

 

Welcome, glad you found us!

yes I brought all my gear with me, did not bring much when I moved to Curaçao, only my stereo equipment,  records. Tapes, CD’s books and my tools. 


Audio equipment is something, that was fascinating too me when I was a child and it still does. specially vintage gear, did never loose its magic too me.

What brings you to Curaçao?  Work?  What do you do there?

I was stationed at Curaçao when I was in the Navy. 
Moved later back, because a company  offered me a contract  as a computer technician, after a while I decided to stay on the island, and work as a independent technician. 
 

below a picture of my gear, it’s a collection of equipment that I collected over the years. 
(I left the red Led’s in the C1’s because I like them more, than the blue, people use now a days) 
 

 

My latest addition is a Kyocera DA-910 CD player, that I hooked up with my Carver gear. 
And I must say, i am really impressed with this combination.

Wow, that's a nice set up.  You really do fit in with this group.

 

And, when it comes to LEDs, just like music, it's personal preference.  Red is cool.
