Ditto to what Kingman said^^^

Dude, you're missing out. You'll be hard pressed to find a more generous & knowledgeable group of audio nuts anywhere, I we are trying to HELP you. There are MANY here who's abilities with a soldering iron, schematic & test equipment are par excellence', BillD among the most talented.

So the advice you been given is not about being able to afford; we are some cheap-ass bastards here, always looking for a deal. Kingman probably has more Carver pieces than ANYONE & if he tells you that CDP isn't working your time, I ASSURE you it's from experience.

If you continue to be a jackass, don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. If you decide to stop whining & stick around, I think you'll find a world of unselfish information.

From FrankieD's lips to your ears: Sunfire - a quiet box of endless power.

Sunfire TG-IV/400~7 Amp

Before I posted, I looked for a service manual, and found none, except for the caveats I posted earlier. That tells me that people don't fix these things. I'm cheap enough (a Scot) to fix anything that's fixable, but without schematics, it ain't gonna happen. Indeed, most of us are keeping 20-30 year old equipment alive. And we were all frugal when we bought Carver, because it was the least expensive high-quality stuff around. I think your indignation is misplaced.

You guess? Too funny.

I imagine Bob Carver would appreciate someone who could actually repair his equipment rather than some wise-ass cocksucker who slams anyone who asks for tech info on a product. I wish I was cool like a Carver amp owner! Thanks for showing me that people with Carver products are so cool!
Go fuck yourself!
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
