    • This is a C-1 in silver that is all original. It is in very good condition. $285 shipped (continental US) paypal FF.

    • I have to think @AndrewJohn 's idea of the RP controllers has some real interest.  Having recently added a RP based DAC to my system (and being a programmer by background), that has a lot of appeal.  If we follow down that rabbit hole, we probably don't even need to touch the main units (Pre and Power- amps), as virtually everything you may want to do, can be handled by an intermediate device or devices.  Caveat:  that does mean more pieces in the chain, which for many will be an absolute no-no - I can certainly accept that view.   @dennismiller55, good for you - it will help keep you in shape!  😉   I'm sure many here are really glad you DO like the vintage stuff, and help keep it going!  I do generally agree, but I do need at least the amenity of a remote control for volume.  Call me lazy (I admit it, wholeheartedly - it was my intro to here, when I proclaimed to suffer from Lazy User Syndrome), which is why my C1 is on a roadtrip right now to get modded.  I can deal with getting up to change CDs (I never liked having to flip LPs as often as they require), and I can have my way with the DAC, but I'd likely look like a meerkat jumping up and down to tweak the volume.   @Rod H- you aren't living up to your nickname - you seem to be making absurdly rational and reasonable statements, lately!   You're right.  95% of the sound is source and especially speakers.  This is never going to be about the actual sound, but convenience, and/or eye-candy (which many of us are very attracted to).  But earbuds?  Okay, now your delving back towards your moniker!  😉  😉  😉 
    • I'm with you on that, Dennis; I prefer the old school KISS principle.....
    • The idea, specifically for the m500(t) was to    Replace the analog meters with LCD VU meters whose colors could be adjusted, and,  the middle logo - where M500(t) + Carver is - put a simple touch control for Power On/Off. IN the case of the M500, the face plate would no longer need cutting.   I do understand @Rod H's point of view, that it will not add any new feature/function. For many of us, the physical movement to reach a piece of equipment, can also be our daily physical exercise. 🤣   The option to buy a more modern gear suggested by @dennismiller55 is good one. I use a Marantz 8802a with vintage M500t MkIIs. Many of us use modern PreProcessors with vintage amps.    @AndrewJohn Pi 3's rule. Myriad of possibilities.
