anybody know what this is??

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CARVER-power-su ... 1517121493?
CARVER power suppy AMPLIFIER serial number PROTOTYPE? it is on ebay! the guy says "I bought this amplifier / power supply from a man who I think said knows Bob Carver and had this in his garage for a while until he sold it to me.
It might have even been given to him by Mr. Carver.

i do not know much about this unit. therefore i am selling this as an "AS IS-NO RETURNS" auction.
I do believe it is a 1 of a kind item. A prototype built in the lab. The box says serial number PROTOTYPE
i do not have the DIN plug to check out functionality. It does turn on. The meter has not light or it doesn't light up. I did put a meter to the DIN plug and
it is registering lots of voltage,
It probably has never been used. It does have a couple small scratches.

Any information from the vast world of Carver enthusiasts will be appreciated Please look at the pictures and ask any questions you have. I tell you everything I know (which know is not a lot) but at least i know it generates power by the multimeter.

thank you." anyone know anything about this? or maybe call Bob and ask him!! :-k

That all depends, on its own its only use is a parts unit for other projects.

But if you happen to own a Set of Silver Seven Amps and you fry one of the power supplies then its really is worth it.
As there are very few Silver Seven amps our there, and the power supply is built better than a tank, its very doubtful that any body would
ever need it.

So on its own, it is not worth much.
