I was introduced to this site by another member, HelicopterPilotDoug who mentioned this is a great site for all owners of Carver's great electronics. I've owned Carver components for quite some time, and presently have a Carver SD/A-450 CD player, and three amps (a couple of TFM-35's, and one A-500x). I'm using the amps in a 5 channel surround system with the front channels driven off of the A-500x and the rears and center driven off of the two TFM-35's. The A-500x is a new aquisition and I was wondering if anyone knows what all is different about the A-500 vs. the TFM? They sound pretty similar, but the A-500x is quite a bit larger and configured a bit different. In my system, at least, the A-500 has a slightly brighter sound and seems to project a larger sound stage. I'll have to listen to it for a while as I'm not entirely sure I like it better than the TFM-35 that was in the front-channel position before.
What do you all think?
