Just a small HELLO from me , things ´re in good progress with the new apartment, think I need two more weeks to get the main works finished, than I´ll have more time for you ...I´m wondering while I read here ..is there anything that I missed ? Can it be that @JohnJ is visiting @Dave1291 in Duckberg ? And do they both spending a crazy good time together ? Or am I wrong ?

Found a lot of winners in here, played a few today... last two were "Blues For Allah" and "Frampton's Camel" Both of those are favorites of mine.. the Dead's since the eighties, that Frampton since I got it a couple years ago! https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=2R1spEzVd4w&list=OLAK5uy_lmVVjQHweqvEsjSIP3xcYu18yyRcKUF9g

  8. Yea, that's crazy for sure. Think I'll leave this one sealed and just play the original not the 25th. Lemme know how the "3 bonus tracks" sound. Prolly have them all on some other lp's of her's w/Derek on them. Typical, I spend the big bucks then they drop the same thing. lol It's intentional, they want everyone broke. lol

  14. In my opinion the Mad Hatter usually pulls good stuff out of his hat. This time it´s my first VDGG. Some parts are not easy for me to listen to, 12 tone disharmonics... didn´t like it at school, this is rather demanding in some parts.

  15. A buddy is a big Crowes/Robinson brothers fan, suggested Warpaint when I asked for a recommendation. I found a pretty blue pressing at a record show some weeks back and decided to give it a spin tonight. Big sounding recording, really dig it!

  17. .it takes a lot more skill + attention to detail to make a perfect pair of raw birch speakers , since the finish must be flawless , the speakers are literally a work of art

  18. It’s funny, even though he was talking me out of it I was still close to actually still saying “nope I still want the raw birch” lol… but then I kind of wimped out and went with the sure thing 😊

  22. They’re BETTER than the old Heritage! There is a bevelled plate under each screw, so you could just twist the wire and insert it under the plate and screw it down. No clockwise loop, lol. I would have soldered the ends if I didn’t already have (a box of) spaded terminations lying around.

  24. Nice!!!! Eventually, I may end up on the same path. Hearing them at an outside venue (Klipsch Pilgrimage) , I've put them high on my wish list. One thing I can't remember was whether or not they were playing on their own or teamed up with a big ole horned sub. Maybe Roy can remember for me!?!? @Chief bonehead Thanks JJ

  25. I've been jammin' with the M1.5t since it was restored/modded and it sounds like a completely different amplifier! I was snooping around YouTube for reviews and found one by Scott Lowell entitled "Should you buy, refurbish or upgrade vintage Carver audio products?" He discusses in some detail the nature of the process and it's effect on Carver's transfer function t modification. Bob tweaked various components in his amplifiers to null other highly respected amps. In the case of the 1.5, he nulled a Mark Levinson ML2. The restoration/mod uses components that are 40 years ahead of the original. Bob's t mod is gone. It is literally a different amplifier and in my opinion a vastly improved one. The clarity, detail, and impact have increased dramatically. I've used this amplifier exclusively since '85 and have a strong sense of before and after. I had a friend (a strong friend) bring over his Mark Levinson 27.5 100 WPC dual mono amp for a face off. We agreed it was a draw (because he's my friend). Privately, I think the beast whooped'em. Granted, the 1.5 is supposed to be 520 watts now. But our listening levels didn't put a dent in either one of them. He also recommends two Carver repair centers. I used Nelion Audio and can highly recommend them. Usually, the most you can hope for is a successful repair. In this case, I got way more than I had anticipated!

  29. I think I’m set on a Marantz 2230 now. Someone on another forum said it’s nice and warm sounding. 30 watts is enough for the Cornwalls I think.

  31. Only have a CD copy, but wife was working a 12hr shift yesterday, so I worked on the past weeks laundry. While ironing I played Tangerine Dream's Melrose. They put out over 100 albums, Melrose was the 20th studio album (39th release), from 1990.

  35. Just a short one. I stayed in El Paso 2000/ 2001 for training at the German (Air Defense) Rocket School (RakSLW). In December 2000 my sister came over to visit, and together we drove from Texas to San Francisco. We passed through New Mexico, Nevada and California. Las Vegas was dull somehow, never liked that place much, have been there twice. But our last stop, before getting to SF, was in a little town in northern CA, called Bishop. We always say that we want to visit there again some day. Stayed in SF for three days, the usual things, Alcatraz, China Town, Goden Gate and Fisherman´s Warf. SF was nice, back then, don´t know about today. We drove highway 101 on the way back, that was great! Just passed through L.A. and then back on I 10 to El Paso. All in all great trip. Death Valley is really that - DEAD, never been to place that really is quiet, so much so you hear your blood rushing through your ears...

  38. As was stated above by DE, speaker impedance is not an issue for SETs. If you use an opt tap corresponding to the lowest impedance of the speaker, distortion will decrease as the impedance rises. I believe Edcor’s bandwidth ratings are at 1 watt whereas Hammond’s are at full rated power. If used well below that, the Hammonds are capable of amazing bandwidth. See George Anderson’s measurement of the 125CSE: http://tubelab.com/articles/component-testing/budget-output-transformers/ Maynard
