Re: carver c-1000

The C-1000 was the precursor to the Sunfire Ultimate Receiver. There are NO parts available for them anywhere, so I advise against it unless your getting it for a steal & it's fully functional. They run HOT, too.

The TG-5 is a processor only, no amp. It does not process HDMI, either, if that's what you're looking for. What exactly do you need? Perhaps we can steer you in sound (pun intended) direction!

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

Sunfire TG-IV/400~7 Amp

Main: HotRodded AL-IIIs
Sub: Klipsch RT-12d
Center: Sunfire CRS-3c
Surround: Sunfire CRS-3 (x 2)
