My second Carver M-1.0t amplifier was finally upgraded and delivered. It took almost two months. Its performance has vastly improved. I use it to power my new DIY Subwoofer.

I need to find someone who will upgrade my Carver TFM-45 amplifier at a reasonable price.

Thank you. The new DIY subwoofer is great. Its performance is probably better than all the other subwoofers that I own. However, my favorite subwoofers are still the two Hsu cylindrical subwoofers that I bought in the mid 1990s. They are not necessarily the best performing subwoofers in the room, but they definitely look the best and I love them for emotional reasons.

Since it seems like you're the resident Carver guy I'll ask what your thoughts on sonic holography. My father is a Carver guy and I've heard what it can sound like when it's properly set up and it sounds really good. I was thinking about picking up a generator on ebay at some point to play around with.

Just got my Carver C1 Pre Amp back after a BillD Mod a few weeks ago. I am loving it. Now in Dec I will be getting my 1.0t modified to the MKII 002. Very excited.
