Re: was there ever a car cd player?

I am sorry I guess I better clarify myself. I was not claiming that Mr. Carver had anything to do with Blaupunkt. BMW had a system that was advertised as Carver. It was an amplified system with like 9 channels or something that may or may not have been a Carver design. The head unit had a very small Carver logo on it that was intended to show the unit had Carver technology. If you pull the head unit out it was a Blaupunkt head unit just like every BMW has. If you read the BMW option carefully it does not claim that the head unit is a Carver piece only that the system has "Carver Technology" My old business partner was able to verify this for me because he has pulled many of those head units from BMW's for service work.
Sorry if I had anyone confused...

I finally talked to that friend of mine who was in the car electronics store with me. He was also at one time the manager of the Hi-Fi store here that sold Carver gear.
I inquired about Carver gear in the 1,000's of BMW's that rolled through our shop. His response was this- "There were a few factory in-dash single disc head units that had a Carver label on them, but the label was the only thing Carver about them. The first one I pulled out of the dash revealed quite a surprise though! The head unit was actually made by Blaupunkt which is standard equip in most BMW's. I was wondering about the whole thing of Carver labels on Blau gear. I remember thinking someone really needed to send Mr. Carver a new .300 Winmag with giant Leica optics so upon making a positive ID on those who were responsible for this he could really "reach out and touch someone" with the same feelings of care and Kindness that they probably gave him!
So there we have it... The final answer on the in-dash cd (I hope) A Blaupunkt cd with a little tiny white Carver label........


I think the label may be akin to the Carver label Toshiba put on some of it's TV sets during that time...

My first Cassette player was Blaupunkt - great stuff. I bought a Carver sub off Amazon a few years back before guys started educating me here. I am positive Mr Carver had nothing to with that item. :lol:

Just saw a post that "UPSTATE" SC is among the top 3 economic areas in the USA. That has a lot to do with BMW moving here.

There are a lot in on the Forum who live there and it seems to be a nice place - I have not been there since 1980 and can't remember too much about it.
