  3. It’s always nice when you can kill 2 (or 5) birds with one stone. I just ended a 4 month work assignment (with zero days off), and REALLY needed a break. I’ve also been wanting to share some of what I saw during my prior assignment in CA with my family. My daughter has also always wanted to see the ocean. I wanted to see my great friend Tim ( @PhilDent )again, AND there was the issue of picking up a certain pair of NHT 2.9 speakers. So we rented a rig (free points) that would hold the NHTs and luggage, booked a hotel (more free points), and hit the road to CA Friday m

  4. After some challenges, I have a functional system. The M-200t was randomly going into overload protection ended up being caused by the C1’s outputs were gunked up with excessive rosin. Did a thorough cleaning of all solder joints (alcohol and q-tips). Was thinking about using the wife’s ultra sonic tooth brush but thought better of it 😇 been over a month now with no overload so I’m going to say solved. had the TX-11 for years and it developed a left channel drop out, took it out of storage and found that the output jack board connection had cold solder joints. Re-flowed those and

  5. I have been a fan of Carveer products since the early 80's when I purchased a M 1.0t I was so enthusiastic about Carver gear, when I was in Seattle on business, I drove to the Carver office in Lynnwood to see what the place looked like. I parked in Bob's parking stall (no one was there on a Sunday) I have a photo somewhere. Have admired Carver products from a distance however due to time constraints and financial constraints of raising a family music listening really got away from me and is one of my passions. Now I have time and some money, looking for a C or CT to drive my

  7. This is a bit interesting to me. A few years ago, I completed a C1 BillD (mostly) modification. After that BillD mod, I tried matching that C1 with a few different amps\speakers that I have (all MOTL) and I couldn't find a good match. That C1 just sounded thin, and I just couldn't like it. I put it in the closet. Recently, I've acquired a m200t for repair and I bought it, since I'm a glutton for punishment and wanted a "matching' anthracite carver to match the C1. So, that repair happened and the m200t is now a happy amp. Of course, Covid homebound me is swapping a

  8. Thank you for this valuable resource to keep the early engineering of Bob Carver alive and well and in addition, find ways to improve upon greatness as technology advances. I remember being 7 or 8 and visiting my aunt and uncle in their newly built home (aunt was an architect) in Litchfield, CT and seeing and hearing the Carver gear my uncle had. I knew that I would one day have this kind of rugged and powerful audio gear in my collection. Fast forward 20 years and ebay on the scene and I purchased a C1, M1.0t, and later a C-4000. Still have them but need to repair/upgrade the C1 and C-4000 an

  10. Hello, my name is Paddy and im from Germany in Mannheim. on my adventure trough many Speakers and Amps i came across my first Carver device, a C9 holographic generator. After importing it from the US, converting it to 220V i had something i just read in Forums or heard someone talk about it. Interessting device. i tried recreating it first with digital DSP's (sigmastudio) based on the patent but after comparing my results to the original it was nowhere near close. carver stuff has something to it.. i dont know what. i like it. after restoring a M1.5T for Friend, i got

  13. What a priviledge it was to spend some time with Tim and Mark. As I said to Mark after meeting, if i could wish for anything it would be that all of us Carversite guys could actually spend some time with each other like we just did. The online thing is really really fantastic but what would it be like if we could find a way to be together locally if possible. Tim was so very kind to host to provide this opportunity for Mark and I. And damn does he have a nice setup!!!!! Damn, that was one unforgetable tasty listening experience.

  15. Found this site while researching some older Carver amps. Got my approval so here I am from Temecula CA. Looks like there's a fountain of knowledge residing here. After being stored away for the last 10 or 12 years I recently set up the Soundstream C-1 preamp I bought in 1990. Forgot how nice it was. Browsing the forums I see there are a few members familiar with the SS C-1. Listening to the C-1 for a couple weeks now I'm inspired to set up a separate audio system for my vinyl and cd's. I'm looking for a power amp to pair with the C-1. Seems the DA-1 is pretty sca

  22. Cabanatuan City, North of Luzon, Sometimes flood gets waist deep inside the house. . . its traumatic. . . i was intrigue with the idea of eliminating cabinet resonance, so that the power the amplifier fed the speaker specially the sub or bass. . . will be delivered by the speaker without coloration (boominess or Suppressed when the audio is in phase or out of phase with the resonant freq of the cabinet). when constructing my house way back then . . there are some unused cabinet marble about 3/4 of an inch thick. .

  24. Well never had this happen. I was testing each channel with speakers using Banana plugs, channel one would not produce sound. With a fair amount of switching things around I noticed I got a bit of audio momentarily on the channel. So I started schecking for loose connections. I notice the terminals were not screwed in and decided to just connect speaker to binding posts without banana plugs and it works fine. Just loose terminal. After that I screwed them in and tested with Banana plugs and all works, what a relief.

  38. Simon Collins (the son of Phil Collins) Becoming Human was released on September 4, 2020. "Becoming Human finds Collins comfortably returning to the sound of Dimensionaut, with even more focus on strong hooks and memorable melodies. This is immediately evident in the album’s title track and first single. Electronic sounds build the soundscape underneath Collin’s raw vocals right before the chorus kicks with subtle guitars and drums." You can read the rest of the review here...

  40. Hello rcdarcy, and welcome to thecarversite.com. We're glad you're hear. There is a lot of information here, much technical know how, and a pretty good bunch of folks that are happy to help. While I can't say about how Carver amps will pair with the Soundstream C-1, I can say that an M500t paired with a Carver C-1 or a Carver 4000t is incredible. So is the M1.0t. To these old ears, the M500t is slightly warmer, more musical, and the M1.0t is more powerful, has more slam. I suppose it depends on what you're looking for in an amp. I prefer the M500t's for music, and the M1.0t's for
