      Engine Upgrade   04/19/18

      The website will be receiving a security and feature patch. But I didn't get to it yesterday, so stay tuned for reschedule.  

Recommended Posts

So, I fell into a Carver M-500 on ebay. I am very excited for its arrival. I've loved the look of Carver gear since the late '80's when I first saw some. I hope I can get the amp in for the upgrades and repair, but first I will swap it into this system for a couple of months.

Ohh the fun is just beginning. 

Obsessive Carver Collecting Disorder.

Welcome to the site.

I started with my m400t rebuild 1 amp

Did a second one, rebuilt a couple of m1.5ts bought and I upgraded a M500t to a MKII (really sweet sounding) now on my TFM45 rebuild. 6 amps and I have a mild case. Some guys here are over the top.. Have fun!

Hello trog69 and welcome aboard. There's a LOT of useful Carver and other audio/home theater related information to be found here. Feel free to browse around, and Z mentioned pics. We do love to see system pics of all types.

I'll have to wait for my granddaughter to come by, because my phone has a potato camera. heh. I have a very modest setup anyway. An Emotiva PT-100 pre-amp/DAC/tuner, the M-500 amp, a pair of Klipsch RP-160m's and an SVS PB-2000 sub. I've been working on the sound side of this gaming PC, so the Klipsch's are on this desktop in near-field, so no room correction or treatments necessary. 

 

As for music I'm that  kind of old fart; right now I have Type O Negative playing, and I lean towards the blues and jazz fusion when I'm not headbanging.

Head banging Grandpa. I can relate to that. My grandson and I went to a Kiss/Def Leppard concert a couple of years ago. It was a great time, and no, it wasn't a stage in his corruption. It was mission accomplished.

I forgot to mention that, until the m-500 arrives the juice powering these Klipsch's is the TEAC AI-101DA, a 26w/ch. desktop amp/DAC. I love this tiny unit. It will power any of my speakers, including the KEF C-40s, B&W 601se's and others, but with the 96db Klipsch's it really shines. I won't be giving it away to anyone, unlike the Denon receiver I never got around to plugging in. Still sitting here on this desktop, unused. I planned on using it and doing a 5.1 setup, but I find that I prefer 2.1 and the TEAC has been more than enough for near-field, plus it's hi-res capable.

We still enjoy pictures of any setup.

Modest or not!

What makes it special is its yours.

Were audio buffs and its not a competition!
