Receiver is in the good cosmetic condition with two exceptions: one plastic knob was broken, so I replaced it with similar, but not identical knob and there is a fixed crack on the small plastic cover behind the right handle.
Receiver works fine, all controls & switches and lights operate as they should, tuner has terrific AM and FM reception featuring Carver’s asymmetrical charge coupled FM detector for achieving super quiet background in a FM signal. Sound quality said to be comparable to the one of monster Sansui receivers, especially good is bass reproduction due to the Carver’s “Magnetic Field” circuitry. High quality phono stage could be used as a separate phono preamplifier.
I am in north Chicago area, so local pickup is welcome.
Price: $250 + shipping (paypal) (OBO).
Have a lot of detailed pictures.
