On this track, all of the separate elements of the recording are made into an organic whole, providing some rare goose-bump moments.
Most modern line sources, like a CD player or DAC, output 2 volts, which is more than enough to power an amplifier with sufficient gain.

Carver was an ardent fan of the legendary Morris Rosenfeld who did those spectacularly artistic photos of racing action in the s and '30s for Yachting and Motorboating magazines. A friend once commented that Bob's work was the equal of Rosenfeld's. Carver replied, "That is the finest compliment anybody ever paid me in my life.
