FYI:The Carver ribbons are not B&G. The B&G are different ribbons & require a different crossover.

Sunfire TG-IV/400~7 Amp
Carver SD/A-360 CDP
Benchmark DAC-1

You can not go wrong rebuilding the carvers. I have mine redone a couple of year ago now and love them as they sound as good as they did new.

I would suggest to have both rebuilt at the same time as they will not sound the same if you get only one done. The rebuild is better than what came from the factory.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Shipping 2 ribbon assemblies back and forth overseas is going to be bloody expensive.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
