  1. Today
  2. I believe the M1.5t is a common ground unit - not inverting.
  3. Thanks @Butcher Yes, That explanation helps. I did not know that's how the Polk interconnect cable worked. So, basically, when combined (in Ghost Buster's parlance, when I "crossed the streams" ), with the Carver it was bad news for one of my Polks. Too bad, I kinda liked those speakers, even though they were massive and hard to move around. I ended up selling the pair, "as was" to somebody who thought they could fix 'em. Thanks again.
  4. The true story of a British businessman unwittingly recruited into one of the greatest international conflicts in history. Forming an unlikely partnership with a Soviet officer hoping to prevent a nuclear confrontation, the two men work together to provide the crucial intelligence used to defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis.
  5. Thats a particular divvy bit of prat that afflicts otherwise brilliant early models of the Stereo Dimensional Array speakers from Polk. An interconnect cable conjoins the two speakers carrying out of phase versions of each amplifier channel to the opposite channel's speaker. That signal is passed to one side of the SDA array, maths and physics happens, and each channel's crosstalk is nullified before it can reach the opposite ear. Quite nifty, actually. Bob Carver, the genius, did it with electronics so you can have a similar effect in most any good system without towers that are near two yard
  6. Yesterday
  7. Hi JRS! You have found the right place to express your love of all things audio (especially Carver) and to flex your sense of humour! You are very welcome here!
  8. @Receiver2000, I think I may have hurt myself. I haven't laughed that hard in ages.
  9. What is it about Polk speakers needing the amp to be common ground? I had some Polk SDA-2's I ran with my m1.5t. Sounded great.......briefly.... Then I lost one of the Polks. Not sure if running them with the m1.5t wast the issue. But folks have told me they are incompatible. Why is that? I've run the 1.5 with other speakers and had no issue.
  10. Welcome to the site @JRS Its a great place to be.
  11. Thanks all of you for your hospitality! I feel right at home. I’ll post photos of my gear when I can.

    That's Magnum and I. He's trying to hide behind me at the vet's office. The receptionist is telling him "I can see you !!" He's the best dog ever - no disrespect to the other dogs and their owners on this forum.
  13. Welcome !! Post some pictures, especially of those speakers.
  14. I know nothing about the mods for this amp, but I fear no mod as long as it doesn't involve welding or blacksmithing. I have no tubes, as I was soundly chastised here for even considering them. I do, however, have a very capable Hafler preamp that I've had completely reworked. It has a wonderful character and is somewhat effective at taming the flat, almost harsh character of my Hafler amps. I could also have a look-see for a C-1, and perform the correct mods on that one. Carver shiny has been a bit easier to find, of late.
  15. I thank everyone for the Birthday Wishes.... I Just want to say it's a pleasure to belong to such a wonderful and thoughtful community forum. So many great members here willing to help with their knowledge, skills, experiences and advice to those of us needing guidance through our audio journey. I want to Thank everyone and let you know, I can't say enough how grateful I am, for allowing me to be part of what I consider....Family. Take Care and Stay Safe.. ROCK ON!!!!!
  16. Welcome, @JRS, Glad you found us. hang out, enjoy. And, of course, that setup you have..., gotta' post some pics. 1400WPC, that sounds awesome - and I bet it does ! 😉 Great story on giving the receiver to your daughter..., I gave my daughter an M1.0t MkII Opt2, (from Nelion/Greg) new black faceplate I put on, and a C-11 (from DennisMiller) pre-amp driving Polk speakers and a Denon 47f servo-tonearm turntable..., WAY more than I had at her age..., but she's worth it. Your daughter no doubt has your genes, as she jumps into Carver-land. Oh, yea,
  17. Welcome to the forum Sir.... Great to have you aboard, enjoy your stay.....
  18. WELCOME @JRS! Glad you found us. You did good contacting Nelion for your refurb project. Greg does exceptional work!
  19. WELCOME @Esprit! Always great to have new members. Caver and Polk are a good match. Do your M-5s have the Peerless tweets?
  20. Those kids have come a long way! Thanks @Sk1Bum
