    The Carver C-1 has been sold!

    Thank goodness! I was coveting that thing. Wanted to check out the sonic holography! :smile:

    It's not all it's cracked up to be. I have it on my Carver C16. SDA is much better. IMHO all it does is move the vocals further to the rear behind the band.

    I find that SDA is very room and placement dependent. SH actually overcomes room deficiency.

    if you are considering trying Sonic hologram, you can actually buy a standalone C9 unit. you can either put it in a processor Loop, or place it between your current preamp and amplifier. It's certainly a much more affordable way to sample Sonic hologram, and you can use it with any of your existing system. Of one sitting here that is also available. $100 pplis shipping. It's not very big and heavy, so shipping should be 15 bucks.

    I find this amazing to be honest i never would of guessed. This was from the MQA link from Bob Carver in Jesse's MQA thread.


    " Sonic Holography, became the
    largest selling product at Carver Corporation,
    both in unit volume and revenue volume."

    Wow.

    Wow.

    that is surprising. I can see where it would have sold a lot in volume, because it could be introduced into just about any existing system, but the units were fairly inexpensive new, so I am surprised that it amounted for that much in Revenue.

    Agree 100%. I had to let a set of SRS 2 go because they just would not work in this room. No matter what vocals seemed to come from the right surround channel. It's a shame to have let them go.

    SH requires a speaker with all the outputs (tweeter, mid, bass driver) to be in perfect alignment both vertically and depth. Once upon a time I had a set of Boston Acoustic A400's with the Carver stuff and it (in my opinion) was superior to the SDA's. BUT I did smoke a lot of weed back then so...

    Darn. Too far for a road trip for sure. :(

    That Adcom 5500 amp seems to be an awesome beast of an amp. I probably would've tried real hard to aquire it.

    GLWTS's.

    How are the Adcom's cosmetics? Smoke free home? Any issues at all? Bent posts, Scratches etc? Sounds as it should? Bridged mode works?

    Thanks

    Looking forward to trying a new amp. I used to have the 545 mkII. I plan to bridge this amp for a center channel but not before checking it out in stereo.

    Thanks for the great deal Travis.
  • CH46ECH46E Posts: 903
    Amp came in today. Its it great shape. Much heavier than I thought it would be!

    Will hook it up in a bit.

    Thanks again.

    Yeah, for a small amplifier, it certainly has some heft to it. Enjoy!
