Re: New to board/old to carver

I'm sure others might respond more in the technical aspect but I would send them off to be serviced at either Ritas Vintage Audio or Rollands Hi Tech audio. The caps etc etc probably could use some replacing. From what I've read, it has been well worth the investment to have them serviced. The people that have, have said the amps come back sounding better. Plus if you plan on continuing to listen to music like that, you can be assured that you will have some amps that will last you for another 20 years or so.

And

The answer is YES! The 1.0t I personally think is one of the best amps Bob made. Velkomme to the forum.

Re: New to board/old to carver

Welcome Cindy! The 1.0t is a great amp. The capacitors (caps) might be bulging at the top. Take the cover off and look around, also check the board for cap leakage. Send them to Rita > http://www.ritasvintageaudio.net/

If you love these amps, it's well worth the investment. Welcome again and enjoy the forum > a great place to be!

Welcome to the Forum.

As far as your amps go, if you send them to Rita/Rolland what you will get back will be far better than anything you could purchase for the same money.

A no-brainer !
