Which Carver component(s)

Hi-I'm new to the site.Glad to have found a dedicated carver forum.I'm hoping someone can shed some light on which Carver setup I should go with-looking for an audiophile setup on a budget!. Until now I've been using a Niles amp/Rotel receiver and CD. I'm looking to change my components to Carver. The question is do I go with a Carver receiver/amp or a separate amp and receiver. I will be running a CD player in addition to using the tuner for FM.I live in a townhouse so am more interested in quality sound versus providing sound for a massive space.Any advice?? Thankyou in advance.

Re: Which Carver component(s)

hello and welcome. there are so many choices that many will chime in on. i would say a c-1 pre, tfmXX whatever your budget allows, with a cd player that i like called a jolida. a sd/a490t carver is also nice, but at 20 plus years under it's belt, a new jolida is the same kind of money. i gave around 500 shipped to my door from the manufacture in china while they were on specail. another thing to look out for is a set of alIII speakers. bigger than not, but oh so nice.

What's you budget & what exactly do you want to accomplish in sound? Speakers?

I'm looking for a secondary system. Are the integrated receivers (ie:'the receiver') a good way to go? I plan to use a pair of ADL speakers I've had for a while. I guess my question is: what's the advantage of going separate componenets over an integrated receiver?I've read that some Carver integrated receivers are great performers.Thanks for the advice....

Re: Which Carver component(s)

Carver makes good receivers but seperates are the way to go as far as ultimate sound quality. Check ebay for a CT-6 preamp/tuner. I have seen them go for $100. It has sonic holography, sounds great,and takes up very little space being quite thin. Then get a TFM-15 or whatever your budget allows. Oh yea and WELCOME!! \:D/ \:D/

ProJect TT Tube preamp
