Looking to buy a remote for my CT-17

Through the many moves I made I have lost my remote to the CT-17 While not critical it would be nice to have. Where can I purchase one?

All,
I started my Carver purchase back in 1990. The stereo matched with a good pair of speakers I think is still unbeatable. I have 'upgraded' to Rotel, but still love my Carver equipment.

Re: Looking to buy a remote for my CT-17

I use the CT-17 with my TV. It gets little air time around here because all want the tubes.
I like mine. It can do 5.1 and a lot more. You really can't set it up with out the remote though.

If Beemer can't help, I have a site on a computer in the house that did have some. I'll PM you when I am back inside.

Anybody needing a good pre - here is one on ebay right now - http://cgi.ebay.com/CARVER-CT-17-/300550885232?pt=Receivers_Tuners&hash=item45fa3a8f70
That is not a bad price as it does phono, and Bob's holygraphy too.

...I think the price is way high considering the CT-17 is a complicated animal at best and getting on in years, it will probably need repair soon and practically no one will work on it. I have 1, sold 1 and the only reason I keep the one I have is OCCD!!!! Get you a decent C-1 or C-11. Less problamatic and easier to fix if it goes bad. Several on ebay as we speak, 1 practically new in the box for $225!

KingMan -
I have a CT-6 also -
Is that crap too ??

I guess the 17 is complicated if you can't read.
Otherwise, many hook up things are built in.
The remote makes the thing sing out as to speaker adjustment just like the new high end stuff.

If I can work it, any normal audio nut can.

I bet it makes your Lightstar Pre look like a Flintstone thing. :lol:

I would never call a guy with your credentials out like this, but I know the new guy from Texas will post back and take my back.

...I run one in my deck system. No Carver is crap except the Chinese models....
I guess the 17 is complicated if you can't read
...I assure you I can read and the CT-17 is a BITCH to repair...refer back to many posts on the forum from people with these. Great pre's if they work...
If I can work it, any normal audio nut can
...WORKING the pre is simple...WORKING ON the pre is not...
I bet it makes your Lightstar Pre look like a Flintstone thing.
the Lightstar pre is a straight line pre with no adjustments other than volumn and balance. It was built for the neutrality...
I would never call a guy with your credentials out like this
...I would expect no less from a good bud like you Bill!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Looking to buy a remote for my CT-17

Love the lively discussion and good options. I have been pleased with Carvers CT-17, TFM-25, and Polk LS-90s. Great crisp loud music with a punch - is that the slew rate? I have plenty of equipment in my house and hate to throw things away - especially electronics. I think buying a replacement for $40 is a good option me. That will solve the issue of walking 10 feet to hit the mute button when a phone call comes in.


Oh yeah, the TFM-25 and SD/A-360 have issues :( , more on that later.


By the way, I do have a Lexicon pre-amp looking for a trash can.
