carver 6250

Hi Guys
I am not an audiofile at all. Several tears ago I purchased a carver 6250 receiver and have barely used it. Now I was thinking about getting a surround sound system for my tv. Would anyone know if it can be used as a sorround sound system or what I would need to make it one. Any help would be appreciated.
Sam

Re: carver 6250

Welcome to the forum! Sorry I don't know much about this receiver, I am assuming it was manufactured late 88-89 and may only be a 2-channel receiver for it's time. Maybe post some pictures of the back panel to look at, or maybe some of the vintage guys will ring in. Good luck

Re: carver 6250

First off, Welcome to the Forum. =D>

Secondly, Here is what I suggest......You could purchase a Carver product called the DPL-33 Surround Sound Processor for not alot of $$$. I suggest that you look here for it at www.vintagehifipgh.com .

The owner of the store Tom (beemers417) is a fellow Forum Member here and I know that has at least 1 or 2 in stock that are in perfect shape for sale.

As far as hooking it up....its really a piece of cake. You will use your existing Carver Receiver to power your left and right channels and the DPL-33 will power your center channel and rear surrounds. There all also provisions on the back of it as well if you were to add a subwoofer with selective crossover settings for convenience sake.

The DPL-33 is a real gem.You will accomplish goal of surround sound, you get to keep your existing Carver receiver, and all for very little money.

Actually, the new surround stuff is best done with a box kit for most.
