My First Carver

I'm a little late entering into the Carver arena. I've seen their products, read mixed reviews, and really new little about the brand, as other brands interested me more at the time. I went with a friend to look at a pair of used speakers and the owner pulled out an '85 Carver Receiver 900 to test them. I liked what I heard and bought the receiver for $80 with original box and manual.

I listen to FM more than cds, so the excellent tuner section and warm sound is perfect for me. I'm enjoying the 900 receiver in our spare room driving my DIY 'SEAS Froy mkIII' speakers. This 100 wpc receiver seems to have no trouble driving these 4 ohm speakers even though the owners manual gives no rating for a 4 ohm load. I hope it will provided many years of listening pleasure w/o issue.

Now I wouldn't mind adding an iPod or the matching DTL-50 cdp as they seem cheap enough.

Re: My First Carver

No upgrades for me. Just fine for mostly FM listening. Only adding the '85 matching cdp manufactured at the same time.

So true. But I don't think I'm a Carver devote.
