I've been into audio every since my dad built his Eicho (sp?) tube equipment, coupled to a Dual 1019 turntable and homemade horns! I picked up my first Carver piece, an M500t, while visiting a PX in Japan in '81 (my dad was over there). What a beautiful unit and love at first site (plus, it still works!). So, my current Carver inventory:
two M500t amps
two Ct-7 preamp/tuner (one in black)
TX-11a (AM stereo)
Everything else since that first M500t was from Ebay.
Love this forum - had the link for a long time, but just now joined! Great stuff!
