Re: Carver HR-895 NEED MANUAL

The HR-895 has about the same power output as the TFM-15 but is a completely different animal as it is not rated to drive speakers under 8 ohms wheras the TFM-15 will drive 4 ohm speakers easily. It also has a 75W centre channel amplifier and a 30WPC rear channel amplifier and also has the Sonic Holography feature that a lot of people like. A good buy if it stays around or under the $200 price point.

Re: Carver HR-895 NEED MANUAL

Thanks for the advice..I kinda liked the idea of it having a pre out for each of the channels, but i have a dpl-20 processer not being used, if i went with this, what carver pre-amp do you think has the best carver sound??
i'm trying to keep my 5.1 intact, but i listen to music in 2.1...thanks again!!

Re: Carver HR-895 NEED MANUAL

I have a Carver HR-895 that was damaged by lightning. I was watching TV w/surround on when it struck, killing all power. When the power came back on, the Carver was semi-fried. It came on, but the electronic functions didn't work. Volume control, bass and treble controls, balance control all worked, but the power switch, selectors for imputs, etc., all were inoperative. I really love my Carver and I paid too much for it to junk it, even if it is 10 years old. Anybody have any idea how much this is going to cost me to repair?

Re: Carver HR-895 NEED MANUAL

Welcome to the forum Dinorokr53. Unfortunately we do not have any manuals for the HR-895, Owners or Service. For servicing, the only place I know for sure that could fix this particular unit would be HiTech, Give Rolland a call for an estimate.

Re: Carver HR-895 NEED MANUAL

Thanks for the info. I'll call Rolland. I do have my owner's manual for the 895 but not a service manual. I really hope the Carver is repairable; it's an awesome receiver. And I've never even used its multi-room capabilities.
