I’m looking for some help please. Anyone gone thur this in the past? How did it work out? I need some ideas.
I lost two Carver pieces in a garage fire, M500T amp and C1 pre-amp, 12 months ago.
Garage is rebuilt and most items have been replaced. One area I’m still having trouble with is the Carver items.
My “deluxe” Allstate policy pays for replacement.
I submitted $650 for the M500T (a bit high on the amp price, because I recently had my amp repaired- I figured $400 for used amp on Ebay and $250 for repair/update) and $350 for the C1 as replacement cost.
Allstate rejected my claim, explaining because there are no direct replacements for these items, IE – Carver is out of business, ETC. They offered $100 for each item.
I explained used models were still available thru Ebay and I would be happy to buy there, just as I had with the originals. They replied Ebay was not an acceptable source for pricing replacement items.
My next approach is to find current brand and model with specs equal to the Carver pieces.
So – I’m looking for suggestions from the group on what current brands and models that would be considered replacements.
