  1. New member but, old Carver customer. I have a M 1.5t Amp that needs some attention. Bought it in Hawai’i at the Army Exchange for $197 ! Still have the sales receipt. I’m in the Tucson, AZ area. Ideas from anyone ? I really wanna listen to my KEF 104/2’s again !

  2. HEADS UP - I'll be upgrading the site software again. Some new features will be available. I'm hoping it doesn't break our theme (the colors and appearance of the site) - but the way it's been lately, it probably will. Still reading through the tech notes...

  5. I have wonderful news... It's been a little over a week since my 500 has found it's way home. Unpacked, reconnected, and powered up! The power on noise I previously mentioned now sounds much more refined than before. It passed Greg's test, so I'm confident it's completely normal and must be the mag coil being energized. The "new" amp sounds exquisite, much clearer and the music is more defined. My Polk 10Bs seem to love their "new" power provider, and play considerably louder than before. I'm very happy! Thanks again Greg!

  8. I never wanted to use my "good" cartridge on records that were not designed for the cartridge..., I.e, modern cartridges since the LP came out, it seems to me, were perfected for 33rpm LP recordings... For me, I found an Orofon Black 78 - i.e., a Modern Cartridge, designed to work well on 78rpm records. It sounds great - to me..., My parents gave me their collection of 78's, which, it turns out, have some very rare original recordings. Opera, Symphony, etc. Names like Caruso..., in all their "original" glory. They don't sound bad..., in fact, quite good

  12. What a great story. That's the kind news we want to hear!!! I can relate - when my equipment returned from repair a year ago the world became a great place again.😁

  13. Well, as you know, there is not a better time to send vinyl through the mail system than the month of July. Records come to your door completely sanitized, maybe even Simonized and ready to hang on the wall. Yup, likely that's what they will be good for folks. Today I heard the freshly cleaned records spun onto my doorstep, screaming as they spun to a stop. "Ah, the MM has arrived." Some were wet with tears and making a frowny face as I took them from their slipcovers. Good 'ole BS&T, side two was first to be spun. By now they are used to it, Right? I have always loved this recording and

  17. Most modems will tell you if they work with Xfinity. If they don't mention Xfinity, I would assume they don't. If you're considering upgrading speed, you'll need to make sure the modem standard is DOCSIS 3.1. DOCSIS 3.0 won't get you up to 1gbs speed. I went with an Arris modem when I bought my own. I made all the network connections, powered it up. When I launched my browser, I was directed to the cable company website, entered some info, and all was good. I've had the modem about a year, zero problems with it.

  18. Honolulu Audio was selling the M 1.5t for $999, The Army Exchange had it New for $650 and no sales tax. I bought it at the Army Exchange after having been mis-labelled on price and put on the “discount shelf” for $197.. ! Full warranty and all .. I’ve had it since that day in 1988.

  21. Hi all, I’m from western Washington & have owned a Carver for over 25 years. I bought my first Carver when I was a student at WSU. I’ve always been an audio enthusiast and, in fact, when I was 6 years old, I tore apart a transistor radio just to see how it worked. I pursued a career in radio/television production and became an audio engineer, but I am now a mom and work in education. I still like to play load, excellent sounding music in all areas of my house and built an amazing sounding movie room. It helps having an electrician for a husband. I look forward to talking shop with

  23. This is the way. I pulled several runs of CAT5 and CAT6 to every room in my house and the detached garage. If it has an ethernet jack, it's on ethernet. Thermostat and phone are the only things on wifi. While we're on the subject, everyone should be running a pihole on their network.

  24. As mentioned already, I have a similar setup of separate devices, Cable Modem --> Ethernet/WiFi Router --> Ethernet Switch --> End Device. For the past 15+ years that I've been on Comcast/Xfinity, I've owned the cable modem that was used. Initially this was a Motorola SB5100, which was replaced with an Arris SB6141 (DOCSIS 3.0) at least 5yrs ago which is sufficient for the 120Mbps down/6Mbps up connection I get. (There's some business arrangement between Arris and Motorola where one owns the other so I tend to consider them the same company.) This is wired v

  32. Some things can be generic - replace all of the electrolytics for example. After that it starts getting more complicated. Do you have the gear to measure performance? Most of the electronic parts will last indefinitely - but there may be something degraded that is technically working but not delivering it's full capability - which might be measured as distortion, noise, etc. with the right equipment. Parts availability and substitutions change so frequently that a list is only accurate on the day it is created.

  34. I am far, FAR from blaming you Ray! These things are a hella of a learning curve for me. You did a a SUPERB job of packaging of all three components. As such I can’t feature how they could have suffered any shipping damage. I was planning on switching/swapping speakers to determine if it’s my speakers & NOT the preamp. And using headphones. Each to test treble adjustment. Thanks for the 8khz switch tip. My unfamiliarity w/all these new-to-me hi-end components is where the problem is. Not your services Ray. I have a lotta learning & testing ahead of me. I’m

  39. David there should be no popping of any kind either there’s an issue or something is hooked up wrong. we know it pops with the c-19. Remove the c-19 and put the c-16 in. Does it still pop with the c-16? if it doesn’t and plays fine then the obviously the c-19 isn’t working correctly and you need to send it back. if it continues to pop with the c-16 then I’d be looking at the amplifier and all connections made. regardless of which unit is having an issue if any you’re covered. Thanks
