    Parasound three channel amp. No affiliation. https://charlotte.craigslist.org/ele/5742173843.html

    I saw that and wondered why? I mean do you really need that much power for a third channel. I'm thinking center by the way. Or is it used for something else?

    Depends on the size and requirements of a center channel. Many are 4 ohm, needing that much power. Even so, the additional current helps with centers to clarify dialogue. Center channels do a lot of the lifting in a surround sound setup.

    For the price though, you can get a 5 channel amp.

    a few things to check 1 play some piano through them and take a listen for buzzing on the ribbons 2 take the covers off and see if the woofers have any foam rot.

    Remember there is not a ton of support for the ribbons anymore. I think there is only 1-2 people that deal with them.

    at 500$ that is a fantastic deal!!!!!

    I had the original amazings that were hard to drive but sounded wonderful. They were one of my fave speakers.

    L2V - those look NICE and are an even nicer price. However, that mini leopard in the background is eyeing them up as scratching posts... Act fast before they are shredded LOL!

    I could fit the Carver Amazings in my living room. But it is only 12'x 12'. Do they need a big room? Thanks. D

    Worse than that.... there is NO REPAIR MATERIAL AVAILABLE. So beyond only one person repairing them in the entire US, he's been out of the repair material for over a year now...

    As much as I'd love to own a pair (think they are awesome), I'd avoid em like the plauge due to the fact you'd need to track down replacement ribbons and have a stock pile to be safe.

    They need a big room to breathe, but beyond that see above as to why to pass.

    I don't know if these are a good deal or not, but seems like a relatively rare purchase opportunity. The silvers are referenced above for a tiny bit less. There are several threads on here about how hard it is to repair these if there is a problem, so caveat emptor...

    Shuguang 6Ca7 Black Treasures -

    This is a pretty solid deal on maybe the best EL-34 / 6Ca7 modern tubes you can buy today. They usually run $249 a quad for reference. Highly recommended here and other places, I have a quad in the Dodd and they are my favs so far even including some very nice NOS tubes.

    Those Dodd Monos have been on eBay as low as $2500, you could probably talk them down a bit from the CL price.

    edit - still are I guess!

    Yeah, the guy (or gal!) probably knows the drill on Craigslist. Everybody is going to offer less than asking price or even completely lowball it.

    too much and from what I understand there are no more ribbon tweeters if those go bad. parts are now unobtainium
