S-Video Pre-Amps / Receivers

Post by maninblack » Thu Jun 05, 2008 2:04 am

Hey guys, I've been in the background for a while, just bought a CM-1090 (very cool looking unit, me likes), so now I have that, a CM-1065, 2 A500X's & a A753X, I was wondering though, aside from the C1000A & the HR895, are there any Carver Pre-Amps (V), or Receivers that have multiple S-Video connections?

A Sunfire by another name! That's Carver "Digital" aka Phoenix Gold re-branding a Sunfire TGP-III
It should sound like it isn't there!

Wonder if these are US or Chinese built units. Wasn't the Carver C-1000 also a rebranded Sunfire unit; a receiver I think? It also had 3 or 4 S-Video inputs on the back.

I think the C-1000a was a Sunfire Theater Grand Receiver (1). There seems to be a lot of incestuous behavior between all of these companies.

I know my Sunfires (TGP-III & 400x7) were built in Snohomish, WA. That doesn't mean that Phoenix Gold didn't farm the manufacturing out to China for their copy.

Just ran through all of the info and pics I have on the Carver C and CT series of preamps and I can't find a single one that even has an S-Video input

Do you have any pics of CT-NNv stuff (like the CT-26v, CT-27v or CT-29v)? I'm betting on the CT-29v having S-video.

No pics of the back of a CT-29V in my stuff, but the CT-26V and CT-27V don't look to have S-Video inputs

The C-20v has the S video input & outputs.

I think I found what I need, the C-29V has S-Video in / ouputs. - Anyone have one in good condition with working remote they'd want to part with? - By the way, what happened to the classifieds section?

Thanx - Guys!

Do you mean the CT-29v or the C-29v which I can't find any information on at all?
