Carver / Sunfire / Audio in Excess

Post by Chuck_K » Wed Jan 19, 2005 5:10 pm

Hi All,
Just joined not to long ago. I've been an audio enthusiast in excess (so my wife says) ever since childhood. What I enjoy most is purchasing these pieces used and most of the time non-working. As odd as it may seem, audio repair and circuit design in general is a longtime passion of mine. As an EE with 27 years of experience I've never failed at an audio equipment repair. This is the only way I could ever afford a Carver / Sunfire piece of equipment!!
My precious Carver and Sunfire stuff:
HR-895
HR-742
True Sub 2700W

=P~ I only get it in the main channels, not in the surround or the center or even in the multi-room outs. It only seems to do it after the receiver has heated up. Not really on the radio, but most other inputs as well. I found the Carver Service center here and Vintageaudiomanuals.com has a schematics and layouts manual for $10!!! =D> They said that no service manual was ever produced.
