My Cover System

My Carver System consists of
CM-1090 (bought new in 1989)
SDA/490t CD-Player (bought used in 2000)

attached to two Wharfdale bookshelf speaker
Also have Marantz Tuner from the 70s.

It is my "second" system, and in the kitchen. Great for jamming and cooking/eating. Can't beat the looks or the power.

My primary system is a tube amp and tube cd player from other brands, plus old henry kloss cambridge soundwork speakers I also bought in 1989.
