  • Those specs are fine, and that amp will easily produce sound below 20hz, and I would suspect at reasonable distortion levels. Specs are just a marketing game. For example, an amp may have ALL of the following real world performance numbers: 5…
  • **spoiler alert** Excellent film - entertaining, well acted, and makes you think. I thought the part where they came back to the ship after being gone for a couple hours, and it had been decades was very powerful. If you like Interstellar, In…

  • Very generous of you. Not in. Having never met the infamous “Lightman”, I was driving down the road last week and thought I maight have actually spotted him:
  • Short answer, no. Most Carver SS amps (and Sunfire too) are better voltage source amps, and less so current source amps. The TFM 35(x) is not a mag coil (switching) power supply - it is a traditional SS design. Carver mag coil amps are not great cu…

  • Very nice score! My Infinity Kappa 9 pair ore one of my three favorites in rotation right now. I couldn’t agree more on the decline of Infinity - they really did “sell out”. Enjoy the new sound!
  • Thanks, Ken - it’s good to know that there are a few of us that still like to work on gear. I find it a very gratifying hobby, and there is SO MUCH to learn. The guy I bought it from has his own company making guitar and microphone cables for stag…

  • Even if you can, it doesn’t mean you should. How big is your room? What kind of subs are they, and what type of enclosure?

  • I am sure it does, and I meant no offense. In retrospect, my comment was harsh, and I apologize. I am an avid Carver tech, restoring and modding Carver gear for several years now. What does the daughter board behind the main filter caps do? Also…
  • Yay. I don’t know what is hoped to be accomplished with this ban, but I’m sure there is an intended outcome, right? I mean beyond just a punitive reaction...?

  • All Carver M500(t) amplifiers invert one channel, thus rendering them NON-common ground. The M1.0t can be had in both common ground (about 70% of production) and non-common ground (the remaining 30%). The “non inverting” writing you see on the ba…

  • If the noise is coming from the transformer (and I suspect it is), then it’s almost certainly from Magnetostriction, which is a completely normal phenomenon in higher powered transformers, and nothing to worry about. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wi…
  • Congrats - I picked up a DNA225 to try out several months ago, and it hasn’t left my system yet. Enjoy!
  • This thread has really made me realize how few truly great (complete) albums there are.
  • I could check them out next week and ship to you - just a thought...
