  1. My vintage Heathkit system I built around 45 years ago. The power amp is 200W a side, all day long. Still works, and sounds pretty good IMHO. The speakers were unique with a 15" woofer facing the rear. The speakers have a very adjustable crossover. Power Amp AA-1640 Preamp AN-2016 Speakers AS-1348

  2. Hi I'm an old electronics guy that still repairs electronics. Though I'm supposed to be retired my customers won't let it happen. I mostly repair guitar tube amps but thought I'd dabble in vintage stereo equipment since the pandemic has taken much of my business away. Musicians aren't playing much if any these days, so they don't need their gear repaired. I'm looking forward to both contributing here and getting advice.

  14. Welcome to the site. I noticed a lot of Heathkit on your bench, when I did photo equipment repair, I had def a lot of self built Heathkit test gear! I think you will fit in well in this corner of cyberspace! As always turn it up, grab a beverage, kick off your shoes, relax and enjoy the tunes! barry

  16. No Carver gear but my vintage gear consists of a pretty impressive Heathkit system I built as a teenager about 45 years ago. Still works...the last time I turned it on anyway?? I'll post a few pics once I'm allowed. It consists of a AA-1640 power amp. AS-1348 speakers and the AN-2016 Preamp On my bench I have a very modest Ravel AM-30 that I bought at a garage sale for $5 if my memory serves me correctly. Also a Toshiba SB-M12 for a little more power if needed. Again a garage sale find. My home theater is an Onkyo system with Paradigm speakers. Great for watching

  17. A quick shot of my bench. Quite a bit of Heathkit gear that I built as a teenager. Any questions I'd be happy to answer. I built the bench when I was 17 and still living with my parents. I was working for a lumber wholesaler at the time so cost me less than $50. I had to saw it in half to get it out of my parents basement, and into mine about 35 years ago.

  18. Hello from Manitowoc Wisconsin, on the west shore of Lake Michigan. I have wanted a Carver piece for a long, long time. My Pioneer SA-8100 finally gave out it was either spend ????$$$$ to get it repaired or take the opportunity to try something new. I now have a Carver Mxr 150. I loved the sound of my Pioneer, but this Carver is way better. Big Smile!!

  25. Always like seeing lab benches. An auxiliary shelf to stack equipment would help congestion. Kind of like a pantry near a kitchen where you store the mixer.

  27. Very cool! Speaking of Heathkit, I once had a HealthKit guitar/PA amplifier with two 30” w x 42” h cabinets each with 2 12” woofers and a Jensen Horn and a separate head unit. I still have the horn drivers in my current recreation of my college system. I didn’t build the Heathkit system, just bought it used for $100 in the late 70s.

  30. Most people that are interested in repairing electronics tend to be getting up there...like me. Most have the time and patience to help and are happy to help. When I bought my HP339A distortion Analyzer on Ebay, it had a problem in a power supply. It needed an obsolete regulator. A fellow in New Zealand sent me one at no cost to me and at considerable shipping cost to him. He wouldn't accept any money. Hopefully I can pay it forward at some point. Almost everyone I deal with in my business is getting up there, ...musicians and techs. There will be alot of experti

  32. Welcome @gabbyhayes, glad you are here ! Do you have any Carver gear? for listening? on your bench? Always like hearing bits of history and wisdom from experience. Some guys here play, and have guitar amps, they fix, and share stories here too... don't be shy about sharing a non-Carver story in a thread. Welcome to the forum.
