Carver HR732/742 Manual Search

Sorry unable to attend Carver fest.

I truly made a solid investment in these three pieces (pre amp / amp / receiver) back in the 80's when I was a young Lance Corporal and have never found anything parallel to it's performance. Not having the HR742 manual is because of doing the 'sea bag drag all these years. Have scrubbed this site for past three weeks and realize what a stroke of fortune it was with my decision then, but with no luck for the below manuals:

Carver HR732/742 Receiver Owner's Manual
Carver HR732/742 Receiver Service Manual

Please advise. (& thank you for this site=awesome!!)

Re: Carver HR732/742 Manual Search

Hey Cannon, unfortunately those are 2 of the many manuals that we have not been able to get our hands on yet (that I know of), but there is a big push at next week's CarverFest to find and scan every manual that we can find to add to our Manuals collection. Check back in about 10 days or so to see if we've managed to score them.

If you are in a rush then you can purchase both of the service manuals from this place:

http://www.servicemanuals.net/ServiceMa ... sults.aspx

As you've probably noticed, we are not associated in any way with the defunct Carver Corporation; just a bunch of fellow Carver enthusiasts who have found each other through the magic of the Internet to share information and answer whatever questions we can. Most of the documentation went missing after the bankruptcy, but some of our members have managed to scrape up a lot of it by various means.
Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

Re: Carver HR732/742 Manual Search

Yes, "enthusiastic", passionate, and by the look at some of the avatars, "magic". Thanks in advance!

I will continue efforts on this end (minus the svcman link), and contribute/"share" what I can.

Hi Jay:

Sorry for the delayed response to your call for help - I was out of the country for the past 4 months and just got back.

I should have the Service Manual for the HR732/742 .... send me an email to mayank at yahoo dot com and let me see what I can do for you.

And yes, welcome to the forum 8)

Re: Carver HR732/742 Manual Search

Hey there Mayank, was wondering where you went. The forum doesn't have a copy of that manual handy to pass out to members. Maybe you could give Sir TFM75 a PM to see if he still needs it. Now, 4 months .... that sounds like a tour of duty perhaps?
