Howdy-do from Orlando, FL!

Post by Blazing Saddle » Sat Jan 09, 2010 12:59 pm

Just saying howdy as I've been looking for information on Carver equipment and this seems to be the place. I picked up all kinds of units from an estate sale and am in the process of testing everything. So far I have a working TX-10, TDR-2400, C2 and a TFM-35x THX and still have about 20 more pieces to look at. Whew!

I have another TFM-35x THX, 1xTFM-55x and 2xTFM75 amps. The rest of the equipment looks to be more tuners, preamps and possibly signal processors....

Yes; I work with 2 retired investors that do estate sales, storage rental liquidations and so on. We tend to turn over the equipment as quickly as possible.

Amps are always first to go so all my present acquisitions are spoken for.

Thanks again for such a warm welcome!
