We have no real idea what the finished cost will be yet, we still have quite a few things to deal with.
The best ballpark I can give right now is somewhere between $16,000 and $25,000 a pair. Unfortunately, they are not a cheap product, to buy, or to build.
These were some of the best tube amps ever built, and it's a shame, poor management of Carver Corp, Bob leaving, cut their production so short.
The power rating will be the same as the originals between 425-450w @ 8 ohms
They are also be 4 and 2 ohm stable.
The transformers... we have a couple different suppliers we are looking into having them make by.
Silver-7 amplifiers will all come stock with Shuguang KT-88 tubes.
We will also offer:
Silver-7z Which will come with the upgraded Shuguang KT-88z tubes.
The "CARVERaudio" name
Well, my father and I had talked about it, and we had to come up with something... and already having the CARVERaudio.com site and name. With most of the things we are working on are an extension of the original Carver, we figured it would be a nice gesture to carry on bob's Legacy. After talking to Bob about it, he liked the idea of turning the CARVERaudio name, into a new brand. So we are.
