  1. Ok, here the update: I replaced the PS capacitors the unit no longer was working. With the help from Les Wolff of Circuits and Concepts I was able to find that the HV at D623 &D627 were high 131v AC and 87v AC. Did some more TS and was to the point that the more I worked on it the worse it was getting. This little unit Carver 130 is not just something that I got off E-bay I have an emotional connection to it. Les was good enough to take a look at it. He found that there was a shorted capacitor on the preamp board and it was dragging the PS down. He also found a bad capacitor on the noise reduction board bad along with the tuner board that was intermittent. After all repairs Les completed the refurbishing and upgrades. I just want to point out that Les was great to work with, in my view he just loves Carvers and wants to keep them running. What I can say about my 38 year old Carver 130 is that with my DIY CSS speakers the sound is just stunning.

  2. As an experiment try moving the ribbons to the opposite sides from each speaker, when they are next to each other they lobe out and cancel each other. Hook up a mic and REW and you will actually see the SPL fall off. Even though it doesn't look as kool you can actually stand them directly behind each other and add a small delay and they will rock. I have 3 pair and have experimented with many different ways and x-overs systems.

  3. Thought I'd share that I just purchased a TFM-15CB power amp, and its driving a pair of Ohm Walsh4, Superphon Revelation II preamp with Micro Seiki MB-14 turntable. The Carver sounds great, it replaced a Marantz 250 amp, I know, classic and iconic amp.

  5. Hi guys, I had a couple pictures of my bias millivolts and where I took those readings. I can’t figure out how to upload the pics from my photos to the site. Can someone assist this possibly technology challenged soul lol? Thank you in advance.

  6. Scanning the eBay pages and came across something that I had to laugh about. There is a TFM15bc for sale that has a remote with it and the description says, " “The unit does not power on but it does make noise when it is pluggin in”😂
