Re: New Toys !

I'm curious, why do you have two pre's? I see a CT-7 and the C-16. Is one of them not hooked up?

Oh, congrat's on the new toys! =D>

Thanks guys. :)

Yes, the CT-7 isn't hooked up right now, I'll use it somewhere !? lol

The M.1 is going out for a tune up next month. I bought them both new 20+? years ago so she's due. (started to hear a little static in the left channel.)

Yup, that's a definite sign that a tune up is in order. Question for ya'. Do you have any issues with the RCA jackets coming off on the back of the CT-7? When I had mine, two or three of them were loose.

Nope, they all seem fine. She still sounds great but the C-16 has a much better sound I think. More realistic. It took a few days to get used to it after listening to the CT-7 all these years.
I miss the remote volume control though.

I hear ya' but the one thing I have always noticed....

Convenience = compromise in sound. ;)

Re: New Toys !

Not always Treitz, F1's Joule pre and the Sunfire tube pre's had remotes and you'd be hard pressed to find better sounding units. O:)

Hehe.

Well, there are exceptions of course. I can say fo' sho' that the CT-7's sound was compromised when compared to the C-16. I'm sure it's not the "remotes" fault, but you get what I'm saying.

Re: New Toys !

The C-16 was the first Carver preamp that WOW'd me. I'm sure your using the "tube" outputs. In my experience they are much superior sounding to the SS outputs (#2). Amazing what Bob did with a few resistors!
