There was a time not so long ago when the powers-that-be sought out that kind of scum and irradicated them from the gene pool. Back then we had no 'terrorist' problems. Our nation had a more 'liberal' stance on protection than we do now.

Hell, I meant the 70s when we were 'still' in the assasination business. My mother's family comes from behind the Iron Curtain also. Bilyarsk(sp). And that's 'Airman' to you. ;-)

Re: Let the fun begin Building Lightstar amps from the groun

Greetings, and welcome.

I'll buy it as is if you decide to sell it. I want it just as a collectors piece.
I almost bought one 10 years ago, and passed on it because it was "unfixable" from what I was told at the time.
If anyone can fix it, I'd say Rolland's your man.
I know Bill at Rita's is the guru on programming micro chips in the Carver / Sunfire receivers too.

The CT-30x was also called the CT-5.1x for a short time. Very nice looking unit for sure !!

is this it ??

The features offered by the CT-5.1x were carefully selected to provide the flexibility required for a surround sound system, but not so complicated to make it difficult to understand and operate.

Bass and treble controls
