  1. Hey Carver Fans! I'm still navigating around the site to learn the mechanics and posting. I don't mean to be redundant, but I posted this on my page earlier. This is my Carver Rack System I bought at a pawn shop many years ago for $350. It came with a set of MK SX-4 speakers too. When I got the system home, I was blown away at the sound this system put out! Been a Carver fan ever since. Now, it's time for a complete capacitor upgrade that I'm doing myself...I'm a very good pro soldering tech, and I love doing it. Here's a few pics of the rare speakers too that are absolutely AMAZING....to this

  3. Thanks so much for the reply! It was a great day for sure...I wonder if the trash guys would have recognized what was there if I wasn't. Chances are, it would have been in the back of a truck among heaps of rubbish.

  4. Welcome to the group, Drew! I was already drooling over the Sansui 7700 before I read your story. OMG, you scored a free 7700, in THAT condition? Congrats indeed - at least it found a great home, instead of winding up as trash. Keep your eyes open for more such trash! In the mean time, join in the fun, here, and enjoy the music!

  13. Thanks so much for the reply! Yes, it was a great day and PERFECT timing seeing the woman toting that amp....she was struggling a bit because of the weight, but I gladly snapped it up.

  15. I have other pics, but need to trim them down to post. The amp had a few blown power supply cans. I'll post those pics soon! Man, they were swollen, but didn't leak thank God.

  16. Thank you! I'd do it all over again...USA! I have a great 'old school' story to tell you guys. I was driving down the street in Jefferson, Ohio and it was a residential area so very slow speed. I saw a lady walking from her house on the lawn, and she was toting an amplifier! She was heading straight for the curb where there was trash...I stopped the car and asked her what she had there. She was struggling with the weight of the amp, so I knew it was something good. It was a Sansui AU- 7700 in beautiful condition. I said "Are you junking this"? She said "Yes, it doesn't work". I promptly and ca

  22. While several comments aren't NAS or Streamer related specifically, the infrastructure plays an important role in my mind making those items play nice and be reliable. In fact it was my desire to have a proper file server for all my audio and video content that pushed me harder than anything else to upgrade the infrastructure. Gigabit Ethernet does not cut it for me. I'm too impatient. With the advent of SATA SSD and then NVMe SSD tech I had to upgrade a couple of times and finally have settled on 10Gbit fiber between servers and workstations. My Audio PC and Home theater PC's are still on gig
