    I haven't heard a Carver that I haven't liked. Anything preceeded by an "m" is good, vingtage Carver, when Bob was at the helm. One of my carvers is the m0.5t at 140wpc and it will drive my inefficient DQ-10's very, very well.

    I have a TFM-45 (375 wpc/ 8 ohms) that does a great job with the SDA 1.2's. My ears give out long before the amp or the speakers do!:D
