CARVER RESEARCH LS-2 on eBay

This has been bouncing around for awhile now. I think at his new starting price he might actually sell it this time!

Re: CARVER RESEARCH LS-2 on eBay

I have an appointment to go take a listen to this LS-2. I thought there was a thread about this amp and to be leery of it but I can't seem to find it on here. One of Bobs employees has it and said it was a prototype of some sort, an in between 1&2 model and that it was Bobs at one point and that it works perfect. Any input at all or a link to the above mentioned thread would be great, thanks. [-o<

I would have made an offer if the silk screening were better. I nearly made one anyway...I'm thinking if you can get it for $900 or better it may be worth it. IMHO.
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

Re: CARVER RESEARCH LS-2 on eBay

Well, I just got back from looking at the amp. It looks really nice and seems to work good but he wouldn't budge from his lowest cash price of $1,100 so I walked away. I'd really like to pick up an LS-1 anyway and this unit not having a serial number among other things kind of turned me off. He did plug in a tube amp he just finished for me, a little 5 watter and we talked tube amps for a bit (he talked, I listened) as he's learning from Bob how to make and work on them. Nice guy all in all and worth the drive up.
