Do whatever you have to do to get a pair, rent a truck, drive half way across the country, trust me it’s worth it. Oh and you are going to need something a lot bigger than that i-pod to drive them.

Welcome to the forum and good luck in finding a set. Keep an eye out on CL, ebay and Audiogon. A set will pop up near were you live.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Being a kid from a low income but hardworking family reading about audio systems that cost thousands of dollars is like dreaming I could fly, I was certain the only way I would ever be able to enjoy the best musical devices was winning the lotto. In the middle of the magazine there was a review of "Carver Amazing Loudspeakers". I was in awe. I kept asking myself how a speaker so different from everything on the market be so much better, and how could I listen to a pair to understand what everyone was talking about?

Fast forward 25 years. I have just finished college and have a place that is really nice. I realize it has been 15 years since I have had anything more than an iPod to listen to music on. Its time to make my dream come true. Seeing Carvers go for less than $1000 when I used to see them listed for $3000 puts them within my reach.

I am looking for a pair of Carver Amazing Loudspeakers in Colorado. I have cash in hand.

Thanks
