Bob Carver Corp Crimson 275 stereo tube power amplifier.

I bought one of these just released amps from Bob Carver Corp. it was delivered here last night. I installed the four Tungsol KT120 two JJ 12AT7 and a one JJ 12AX7 tube. I listened to a few tracks before hitting the hay, my first impressions are very positive. thanks ,William

    What's most interesting to me is that Bob Carver somehow developed a relatively high output tube power amp that doesn't burn its power tubes up. That's wizardry!

    Bob did some calculations and he figures that the KT120s operating in the Crimson 275 using his DC restorer circuit should last in excess of 40 years.
