Hello Everyone,
New to the Carver forum and forums like this in general. I have a pair of Carver AL III + speakers which I have had since 1996. Unfortunately they have been quietly sitting in a closet for the past 6 years due to space limitations but am finally in a position to bring these bad boys back to life! I have an NAD stereo preamp and 2 Harmon Kardon Signature 1.5 amplifiers for power. I'll be looking to make some mod's and have some questions so I'll do some searches to start. Cheers!

Carver M-4.0t (still completely stock but working perfectly - to be re-capped soon)
VPI HW-19 turntable with Benz Micro gold moving coil cart
Klipsch Cornwalls (1988)

On hold for future use in my tri-amping plans:
Carver C-1 (stock - but will be mod'd this winter)
Carver M-500t (currently being repaired)
Carver M-0.5t
Behringer CX-3400 3/4 way crossover

5.2 channel HT system:
Pioneer Elite SC-77

I've just got HR-895 and I have problem get it running. I connected all speakers...two satellite, center and sub. It is giving me only sub and after while satellite speakers start working. C
enter is not working at all. I checked all speakers on different amp and they are all working. Anybody has any idea?
