    That man amazes me. So much passion and attention to detail. Look at the answers in length he provided only yesterday! A true gift to our hobby.

    TNRabbit, is it really nec to make multiple posts of the same damn thing? You seem to do that a lot lately and if it's a computer/software issue then I can see, but if you are doing it on purpose, it's damn annoying.

    SORRY; issues with my computer--didn't realize it kept showing up as different posts....

    MOD: Please delete the second two...

    WTF would I post the same thing three times on purpose?? I went back to edit twice & apparently it's doing a new post instead of editing the old one....

    "You seem to do that a lot lately"--??? First I've seen this happen...

    Why do they have Radio Shack knobs on amps going for that kind of coin?
    I like speakers that are bigger than a small refrigerator but smaller than a big refrigerator:D

    I'm personally not a fan of Carver ALS's but the system below [Including Bob's new amps] produced a sound that stopped me in my tracks. One of the closest systems I have heard to date that you would have sworn they jazz musicians were playing in front of you, even if you weren't blindfolded.


    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    I thought the Amazings needed more room on each side.

    They do. Much more room, both to the sides and the back. All of the wrong things were done with this system. All I know is that we had Carver, Sunfire and Lightstar gear on this rig in obviously less than stellar conditions. As soon as they hooked up Bob's tube amps, I was walking by off-axis and literally stopped in my tracks. The system sounded completely different and I knew right away that I liked whatever they changed.

    Bob's tube amps were the only thing they changed. I must admit, I was floored at how good that rig sounded.

    Not! These are newly constructed from all vintage parts, even the tube sockets, with the exception of a few electronic bits and the custom made chassis.
