Hi all, New member here. I currently have the TFM-35X running my system and have owned it for 20 years. Also have the Preamp/tuner model #CT-27v but I
don't use the the preamp/tuner anymore. I did pick up a Carver TL-3220 CD Player about 3 years ago and it is in need of repair. It is in really good shape for being
23 years old. Is it worth repairing? Anyone own this CD Player? Anyone on this forum know who repairs carver equipment in the Cincinnati Ohio area ? I am curious how this
player sounds, I know it had to have been one of the best sounding players back in the late 80's. It does turn on, it just doesn't play. How much were these when they came out,
anyone know? Thanks! Sorry for all the questions!

Welcome, Dave!

Those model cd players are considered to be marginal & not usually worth repair unless you can get it done cheaply.

The SD/A cd players are much more desireable, but still old & technologically outdated. It boils down to how badly do you want it repaired...?

Where have you been? Toy Maker fixed the text "S-W-E-E-T" to read that to screw with Roy, who was constantly doing one-word posts with that~
