  2. Genuine MKII amplifiers as built and warrantied by Nahsh5150 qualify for a - No Depreciation trade in value - toward the purchase of new Bob Carver Vacuum Tube Amplifiers.. Price of a MKII can vary due to cosmetics of the donor amp.. The original price you paid for a complete MKII (usually ranging from $650 -$750) is allowed with no loss of value within the Bob Carver line.. Mobility within the Bob Carver brand, without depreciation loss to the customer, is most likely the best on earth.. If you know of a competitive policy please share. Within the Bob Carver Line you can't loose with a genuine MKII as a trade. This is an exclusive offer of Jim Clark Stereo.. A Bob Carver Showcase.

  9. Guys and gals, There were 10 Crimson 275s produced in the color shown in the ad above. These were the first 10 that shipped to dealers and are long gone by now. They were shown in this color at Capital Audio Fest in 2017 and in the original factory photos. The factory changed colors and silkscreening after these 10.. We have started shipping directly from our stock order in Snohomish Washington, after burn in and test.. This unit is in stock in near Rockford, IL. It is factory sealed and the last one in the original advertised color as shown in the ad. May be of interest to collectors. It is the last of the original 10 and no more will be produced in this color. (815)323 0898. Dennis. Stereo/Mono is not an option .

    Congrats Greg and Jenny!!! Glad to hear you left that job that was taking a toll on you.. Great times ahead for you and your family. I know you will do great in your business and a bright future is ahead for you and your family. Awesome!
  11. The 275 has a circuit board while the 350s are point to point.. It has a full 5 year warranty. Including tubes. The 1st run was 10 units. I have 1 of those 10 still available. More coming next week.
  12. Recognizing brand loyalty, we would like to offer top dollar trade in value for your working vintage Carver amplifier, toward the purchase of a new Crimson 275 Tube Amp or pair of Crimson or Raven 350 Mono blocks. Stock working amps in good physical condition can be worth $500. Amps serviced by a Carver Site repair team member or Authorized MKII can be worth much more (up to $800 in trade).
  13. Guy and Gals, Special offer for site followers, I have a new pair of Raven Black 350s that got through the build with 2 small paint imperfections (see close up picture). They are new with full factory warranty of 15 years including 15 years on the vacuum tubes. They have never been used. Factory authorized dealer. The imperfection is not visible from more than a couple feet away if you know it is there. Here is a very rare chance to get a brand new pair of Bob Carver 350 watt Mono Blocks for the price of preowned 305s. $6500 includes shipping in the continental USA.. CCs and PP accepted. Call me 815 323 0898 Jim.

    Sorry for a poor choice of words. The word hack was not proper. It was meant as modification of another design. I'm truly sorry if that was perceived as having anything to do with quality. No Greg. I do not know RussK although I offered him a place to show his faceplates for sale. I also show the link to your site here at CS. Also a link to CA site. Also a link to Bobs site. The MKII and your loyalty to Rich is commendable. The topics like this one and the past fighting between CS,CA, now again RussK, is behavior that is not reflective of the man who's name you display.. When stoping by and reading post like this, It just bothers me.. Understood this is the MKII site and thats great, but consider the guy who's name you display, just a little.

    Clearing the air / Russ Kall merchandise.

    Exactly.. If the man himself doesn't have any heart ache, how can anyone else. If your a guy with a MKII mod or a guy with a black face plate he won't care, more than asking you about what you did and how it was done. Those patents are long expired anyway, but the point is Bob isn't offended by people modding his stuff. If meeting RichP or RussK he would certainly be supportive of both (even if Russ had issues with a mod) and not defensive in the least. After all, they all have his name on them.
