Carver C-1000 Feeler

I have a Carver C-1000 Reciever that is in excellent condition with very litle use.
Used this unit along with a TFM-35 Driving a 5.1 setup with Swans Divas 5.1 C-3 and 4.1's.
I currently brought out of storage and have been using driving a pair of the 4.1 Diva's and Playing with a pair of BG Radia Z1's. I have used the unit driving my Maggies, the 4ohm 4.1 divas and 8 ohm Radia's. Power has never been an issue with any of these speakers.
I have never seen many of these units on the market and i have assumed it was the predecesser to the Sunfire 200 watt reciever Bob put out.
Could I get any honest response on a starting point for the value of this unit. It would be a 9 out of 10 i think. The unit is in Perfect working order as far as i can tell. I have oringinal box, manual and remote.

Thanks

They are pretty rare. However, there are NO parts available for them. If anything goes, you're hosed. They are a very nice H/T receiver but run a little hot. Check with James (Toy Maker)...he has one & might be up on the going rate.

IIRC neither Rita nor Rolland will touch them.
It should sound like it isn't there!
