The tremendous power and sonic performance of the M1.0t mkII opt002 is spiced up with Nelion Audio's new retrofit kits. Featuring the vertical high rail capacitor board, and new bias pivot and thump fix CCA's, the mkII feels and looks more professional than ever.
Comes with 3 year parts and labor warranty.

These are direct coupled outputs, so great current sourcing. Heavy, linear power supply. Original meter bulbs. They sound clean and detailed, excellent for surround speakers or center channel.
I have a recently upgraded Carver C-1 preamp with all the BillD upgrades plus a few extras. It's in good cosmetic shape and performs great on the bench and in my test system.
The basic C-1 features separate left/right tone controls, phono inputs (moving magnet and moving coil) and of course sonic holography imaging. The BillD upgrade replaces roughly 180 parts. All electrolytic caps are replaced. Op amps in the line and phono stage are replaced with OPA2134 devices. All ceramic caps are replaced with upgraded components. All resistors (outside of the power supply and SH) circuits are replaced with 1% metal film resistors to lower the noise floor. I've also added a removable power cord and moved the internal fuse to the rear panel. And of course, a subtle blue LED to mark this C-1 as special.
Price is $400 plus shipping from 85255. Shipping to USA only.
Price $399 plus actual shipping (and paypal fees, if any)
This amplifier has been recently serviced and checked (voltages verified, volume controls and switches cleaned) and is in excellent working condition. We have an original Carver shipping box, too.
All functions operate as they should and it sounds great, being tested through both a pair of Altec Lansing model 19 speakers as well as a pair of Magnepan model MG2.5R speakers. It sounds beautiful driving either! Both meters, lights and volume controls operate as they should and without any noise or static in the volume controls. (Sounds great with a Ten Octave Audio LP1 tube preamp.)
(Buyer should be aware that this is, in fact, a vintage amplifier and although it has been checked and serviced it could in the future require power supply capacitors or other components to be replaced. It is a vintage piece of equipment and as such does not come with any guaranties aside from the fact that it is currently working well with no issues and will arrive to you in that condition. Beyond that it is the buyers responsibility to maintain and/or service the amplifier.)

It went to CarverFest one year. Some guy with a gold pen scribbled all over it. (I'll scrub it off if you like.) Priced accordingly.
Offering it here first to keep it in the family
