I will refund any additional discounts when we finish the group buy.  You will need to email me at the end to remind me.

I will send 1 order to Grover for all orders. In the US, I will distribute and ship all cables to the people who ordered them.

Outside the US, the cords will be drop-shipped directly by Grover.

Once I have received all the cables from Grover, I will post an update and let everyone know that I'll be shipping them. Please be patient.

Thanks,
Carl

PS If you absolutely cannot pay with Paypal, send a money order with the current discount so that I receive it by April 21st.  Keep in mind that if the discount goes up, I won't be able to send you a refund for mailed payments.
I really enjoy listening to music.

Carl,

you have great stamina(but I bet you hear that alot  :oops: )

But seriously...which version Grovers are these i.e. silver or the silver/copper mix?  And what about adding spk cables to the GB, as it will help to reach the 35% mark quicker.  :idea:

I will definately be a taker for a set of ic's but I would also like to know what version we're talking about. I believe the latest was u6?

As of last month, he didn't have a site. Supposedly waiting on a patent before he ramps up. He seems pretty popular on the web as it is right now! The genius underdog inventor with better and cheaper products than the establishment always has appeal.  

I too would love to have another website full of products to covet. Just what I need!

I will invite Grover to respond the questions about the type of IC's and speaker cables... but I know he wanted to keep it simple for the group buy.. which I appreciated... so this GB is for IC's only.

As to photos... someone took one at the last gathering... Stereophool?  Was that you?  If you send the photo to me, I'll gladly post it.

I just lent my 2 loaner pairs to a local friend to try so, I can't take a photo now. :(  I should've done that... doh!  

I agree a website would be nice... But Rich is correct.. he's waiting on a patent to do a website... How those things are related, I have no idea.  But, it's nice to know one is coming regardless.

Thanks for the responses (and payments!) We're off to a good start.... already have 6 pair of cables. :)

Carl, I'll definitely get in on this Grover group buy but I'd like to second the request for including his speaker cables as well if possible.   If not, I'll contact him separately on that.

P.S. Does anyone have any experience with his balanced ICs or digital IC?

I don't know about digital ICs, but unless I grossly misunderstood his response to my query about (read "request for") balanced ICs, he doesn't make 'em.   :(

PS - For those interested, I've been led to believe I will receive a pair of Grover's speaker cables sooner than later.  Assuming that's so, I will post of their arrival and later follow-up w/ my assessment of their performance vs. Anti-Cable, Reality and Sonoran Plateau speaker cables.

Photos of Carl's samples are coming soon from Henry. I will post them.

From my memory, they are simply made but look nice. Blackish techflex kind of exterior, but nicer quality than techflex. Looks like genuine silver RCA plugs with some polyolefin heat shrink tubing covering up everything else. They are 1/4" thick cables with connectors only as thick as RCA outer grip conductor plus a layer of thin heat shrink. Doesn't look fancy, but like your momma said, it's what's on the inside that counts!

I'm hoping to get 3 pairs and a digital.

Interesting. XLR connector on single ended cables? Hmmm... Doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense to me.... Any equipment with a XLR connector is balanced input or output. Might be good to discover the real deal so no surprises.

I will search Steve Hoffman site tomorrow for a clue.

I'm not sure what you're talking about, but I said nothing about putting XLR connectors on SE cables.  I asked about getting balanced cables instead of single-ended cables.

Am I missing or misunderstanding some sort of semantics thing?

I guess I was assuming that his XLR terminated cables are balanced.   Now I'm a bit confused.... (but always willing to be enlightened ;-)
