There is no singling out here. There is not one thing wrong with a fellow member helping out a new member of the forum, ever. However, just to skirt the forum rules to get a manual.......BS posts are generally frowned upon. That's why I thanked Steve and informed Donberry that he choose wisely.

Happy Memorial Day fellow Carver fans!
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

I think you earn your right to make smart-ass remarks when you're over the post limit. You have nothing to gain, so it's all in fun.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Re: TFM-35 output problems

well, first, sorry to create such a stir and glad i chose not to make a bunch of garbage posts.
2nd - I believe I am going to have to study up on the carver before I crack the hood. I know very little about the regular stuff, just learning it. Had to quit riding my bike for health reasons so got back into audio after a few decades absence. Then as I was buying very used equipment, found out I really enjoyed repairing/restoring them.
Is actually how i got the TFM-35. I was looking at one in the past, but did not really have the cash for it. In the process of looking for an oscilloscope to go a lil further in my new hobby, guy I have dealt with in the past happened to have a scope and a TFM-35 with the stated problem.

Plan is to repair the TFM-35 and use it and a Pioneer Spec 2 to bi-amp a pair of Magnepan MG-IIc's.
I guess we'll see how it works out.
For now I guess I had better spend some time finding some info on the theory behind the Carver stuff, doesn't weight enough to make a good boat anchor :-&

oh, and not to create another stir, but I did not read the post about Lennon and satan, but I did listen to the guy who wrote the book on Coast to Coast AM.
Don't know about the book, having not read it, but having listened to him, imo he sure drew some pretty far out conclusions. I believe in many things most people do not believe in, but Lennon selling his soul is not one of them. In fact, if i remember correctly, in his interview, he based most of this on someone telling him that they overheard Lennon telling McCartney's mother that - so from there, all he did was piece together a really weird wacky puzzle imo...
sorry, normally would not post this in the technical section, but as it was mentioned.
