  1. I'm a new member but longtime audio enthusiast. I used to sell Carver back in the early 80's when I worked at a regional northeast Hi-Fi store called Sounds Great. Does any one remember it?

  6. Once I am allowed I'll post a how-to for changing the 490t tray drive belt when it arrives. It can be done easily without trying to pull the belt under the tray itself since removing the tray is an easy process, you don't even need to remove the transport.

  7. Glad I could help. I ordered belts for my 390t and 490t from KP Components and even with shipping to the USA it only took about a week. The prices are very reasonable and the belts are great quality too.

  8. Welcome @Virgil to the site..., A few more posts, and you'll be able to download files..., (minimum posts before downloads keeps some of the spam out.) There are a number of threads on belt replacement for the 490t. Do a search on some keywords and you'll find them... AND they reference the type and size of belt by name 'SBS 2.4'. You should find a source on Ebay - there are several, if you search there. Don't pay an arm and a leg..., Here's a full belt-size table thread from @zumbini CD Player/Changer Belt Size Database - Parts depot - TheCar

  9. Sonos released the replacement for their legacy Sonos Connect product - The Sonos Port It will process HiRez audio using their S2 app. It still glitchy and requires a 2.4Ghz network - this is a pita

  10. A huge thanks to Zenith4me - a Canadian parts house with reasonable shipping! I've done so many parts searches in the past, never came across this store. A real godsend as I'm always needing vintage electronics parts!

  11. Thanks Virgil. We try. You won't be able to post pics until you get to Novice status. You're just a couple of positive reactions away.

  12. Wow what a wonderful, helpful forum this is! So used to stonewall answers and 'read the FAQ' responses - you are all amazing, thanks to everyone with their detailed information! Will order the belt soon - being in the Great White North means paying $18.00 shipping so I'm going to try and find a source up here that I can order from. Will be checking in from time to time - I'll check out the thread on replacing the belt since I found a way to get the tray out for easy access with only needing to remove the top casing lid. If it hasn't been documented I'll take a few pic

  16. Looking at the manual it's part no. 24 and list the part number as A81G131. There is no indication of the size. If I didn't miss anything there's only one belt in the whole unit. I just saw this post. BarryG has a belt for his CD player and may be able to help you with the size and where to source it.
