  2. What happened to your Carver amps
  3. I finally had the time to do some critical listening with the Carver 305's,Ithey replaced an Aloia ST-13.01i 30 watt solid state amp with inductive power supply.The Aloia amp has plenty of power for khorns,deep bass and great sound stage,but the Carvers are smoother on the top end and has a more relaxed sound.People that think Klipschorns are not a high end speaker,has not taken the time to get the most out of them.I have a pair made in 1980 with walnut finish,I upgraded the crossovers to ALK Cornscalla/Universal models with B&C DE-120 tweeters,I also upgraded all wiring to 12 gauge copper.I added pipe insulation to seal the backs to the corners.These small changes makes a huge difference in sound stage,image and bass response.I had friend over and he could not believe the sound and we listened for a couple of hours and he was amazed.
  4. I plan on trying some different tubes and see how they sound with some vintage 12ax7's and 12at7's,I have matching amp stand to go with my new stand and I am trying to make those changes next week.
  5. I picked up a pair of Bob Carver VTA-305's black beauty mono tube amps,great sounding amps with smooth detailed midrange,with plenty of bass.I plan on setting up these beautiful amps on German Copulare stands that I had custom finish paint job
  6. It has the rare rack mount front to go with it.
