CARVER / Re: CarverFest 'The Pecking Order'
« on: December 25, 2017, 08:44:19 AM »
would love to go for the build, but staying for a week or two is just not for me. Does someone have those dates? Also, would be interested in "renting" space for that period.


Try and get hold of Loner T on the Carver Forum, It looks like he is staying in Cabin 5
and there are a couple of bunk beds in the lower floor that they rent out to people that can only stay a few days.

I have made to 10 of them, and I come from Ottawa Canada to NC.

Great time is had by all, what a great extended family.

e have build some nice things at Carverfest, a 20 wpc tubed power amp and a Lucas  tubed line stage (preamp)

My fist Carverfest was for 2 days, now I manage to stay for 6/7 days.

So do not wary that you can not make the whole 2 weeks, just make sure that you make it for a couple of days or more, you will enjoy your time there.

I'm a couple of days late in posting.

Well done, it takes work on both sides to make it that far.
My wife and myself just passed 42 years married.


Thats a nice rig, but I have my VPI Classic.

Actually I'm still a couple bucks cheaper.   My point is that I was trying to give him a deal at $60.

Thanks, but I think I will bow out at that rate.

3M Sub-1

I'll probably flip one of the sub cables and that alone will pay for the whole day.   Anyway, does anyone here use these?   Any opinions?   I've never had the budget for "boutique" cables, but with them falling in my lap like this, why not?   BTW, the King Cobras have arrows on them.   How do the electrons know which way they are supposed to flow?

I would be interested in the Sub-1, but I live in Canada.
send me a price with shipping to  Ottawa, K1B 4L2

I left Carverfest 11 with serial #11, after making the LucasLab Line stage, I gave them both to my daughter
who lives in Vancouver. Both items working fine today.

Early this week at work, a boss whom I don't work for, asked if I could help him with tv/ cable / soundbar issues...  Since I like to help I said sure...  He mentioned he had a 50" led tv that stopped working and that I could have it...  Well, after some research, and tweaks, I have a working 50" led tv!  It is not a Sony or better name brand, but it DOES work!  :)

Thanks for reading...


Thats perfect!

Home Audio Equipment in the Burgh / Re: Loaner amp...

I'm glad Skeams got them; able to keep the amps in the family.  How do you like the 803's?  They're beautiful speakers.  Vast improvement over the 802?


I also am happy that Mike picked up the Silver Sevens, as you say keep them in the family.

I'm finding in every aspect the 803D3 are superior to my 802D. The mids (vocals) are so crisp and clear with tighter bass and room filling bass
imaging and depth have increased as well.
Now i'm using a smaller speaker, I do believe the 802D's where to big for my room.

Yep I did, I needed a change, so I went with a Devialet D400 (mono block) and I personally think they are great
even the sound stage.
Mike Beam picked them up, as fare as I know he is real happy with them.

I also got rid of my B&W 802D and last month I purchased a brand new set of B&W 803D3, they list for $20K here in Canada.
Missed you at Carverfest, I just booked my flight today for CF16, you should think about showing up.

Would like to hear StephenWVU's comments on his recent experience with the Devialet 200 - an absurdly expensive integrated amp($9K) with class D amps.  He is about to sell it but he had good things to say about it too. 



So would I, i'm very interested in knowing what he does not like about his Devialet 200.
I am a very happy Devialet 400 owner since I sold my set of Silver Seven Tube amps last September.
I find them to be fast, detailed, slightly warm and the tightest Bass going. If you feed them a not so good recording, boy you will know it.
