Hello, This is slidero8, first time here, grew up in the 70's 80's and always remember drooling over the pictures of Carver Equiptment in the magazines. Finally bought a 6250 receiver and was so impressed by the sound. It was like a moment of clarity when comparing it to the Yamaha I had been running. I ordered a m500t and a C1 which should arrive Monday. I have Technics Towers and Infinity sl-40's, saving for some Klipsch to handle the power. I also run a vintage bsr 3000 eq and Dual TT. Anyways I have spent the last couple months reading what I can about Carver and hope this is not to long winded. I will get the hang of the site soon enough. Thanks.....Slidero8(jeff)

=D> \:D/ =D> Welcome!! \:D/ =D> \:D/ You got yourself a nice Carver setup, I always liked the m-500, warm sound and big meters. You should hold out for a pair of Klipsch Forte II or Chorus II, top of the Klipsch food chain IMO.

Just received M500t from UPS, beautiful, 10/10, looks like it could be sitting on store shelf 25 years ago. I cannot find a flaw! :D
