  1. Can't believe it's been 10 years already. You have been missed, but not forgotten. https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/azcentral/name/william-dibble-obituary?pid=155630337&utm_source=MarketingCloud&utm_term=AddtoGuestBook&utm_content=134495&utm_id=b291bf6e-5d6f-4441-ab58-11c0fbb12a25&sfmc_id=113370147&sfmc_activityid=5592ee28-e1c8-40e6-8b3f-d05ef39176f2&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=GBAnniversaryEmail_PowerInbox_NOCLIO_TREES_Neustar_081021&utm_source=MarketingCloud&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=GBAnniversaryEmail_PowerInbox_NOCLIO_TREE

  2. I've told this story before, but I think it's appropriate to tell it again today, as we honor our beloved friend Bill. I confess to joining the Carversite because I needed something-- I had just purchased a pair of TFM-25's off Ebay with bulging caps and I had no repair experience and no clue what to do. After going thru the Service Manual and wading thru search filters on Digikey, all the unfamiliar terms and specs had me about ready to throw in the towel. So I posted some questions here on the site and got a few helpful tips. And then the very next morning, s

  3. It will power up with the radio //etc display lit up and will switch functions however there are only 1 LED showing in each volume indicator and no output to the speakers no matter what I do. I changed out the Relays and the Toshiba selector IC and the usual charred resistors already. There is only one click on power up so my question is what is the startup routine and how is it done _R/C delay circuit I am guessing ! I am thinking it probably needs the power supply capacitors changed out but there is probably a voltage test point or two I can verify if the switcher supplies are working

  6. New member here. Just bought my first set of carver gear. Got a M1.5t, c1 pre and a tx-2 tuner. Running a pair of older klipsch Epic cf2 with the dual tens. Sounds descent sometimes but I know I need to do some work to it. Switching from an Adcom 150watt amp and can easily tell the difference in power. Got some low volume issues, I going to look around this site and see if I can figure out what I need to do

  7. Hi everyone. New member here from St. Louis. I've visited thecareversite in the past as a guest and it seems to be a wealth of knowledge. Looking forward to interacting with the community. Regarding my Carver gear, I'm the proud owner of a C-19 preamp. -Chris

  8. I remember when Bill D. decided to take on my two PL-1000s by installing the @jvandyke_texas mod/upgrade. I practically had to force to take payment for his work because he could not get the same test results for both units after the mod was installed. He was such a perfectionist and a generous person. That's the Bill D. I miss...

  10. OK got some tunes happening --turned out the Volume and Fader pots were reallt crapped up --cleaned them with electronic cleaner spray ( have some deoxit on the way too ) and viola --tunes ! now on to the radio--I sprayed down the tuner IC board good while wiggling the connectors and it seems to do everything but output sound ? Do those 2 electro caps mentioned as culprits cause no output or is it some other little bugger ?

  11. I personally think so. I'm using this amp to drive boss901's, & i tried it before & after. My wife even said the boss sound cleaner. I also have my PL400II is driving klipsch Heresy & an SAE2200 for my CV VS120 speakers. I like everything together. Plus it heats my attic.

  15. That ten years went quick. He still lives on for many of us through his C1 mod. Thanks to LT I had the chance to hear the difference between a stock C1 and the BillD C1. I still can hear it in my mind. Speaking of it reminds me that I still need to get my C1 BillD upgraded. I think Dennis Miller offered his services.

  16. @jvandyke_texas, I just checked my notes and according to them it is a Mark Levinson ML2 amp which is a solid state monoblock amp. So no, not tube modded per se. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

  17. I happened on the Carver Site while researching info on Carver receivers. I have a M-400t that I have had from new that I just had refurbished at Nelion. Good folks. I have a reservation to have my Crown SL-2 Preamp refurbed as well by Nelion. Just finished upgrading my Klipsch LaScalas with Eliptrac 400 horns and ALK crossovers. Now making some Frankenscalas with the old parts for my hangar to be powered by a MXR 900 I bought but haven’t received just yet. Fingers crossed.

  18. I love this amp. Before I put the cover back on I ordered the small caps for the power board and a few resistors that are running about 170-190 degrees. Maybe that’s normal but just in case. Other than that, it’s a nice addition.

  19. My Uncle asked me if I wanted this??? I have the box, warranty card & manual. I opened it up to clean it but it looks new.

  20. @Jim Walter Have you opened up the bottom and sprayed the 2 switches for the Tape Dubbing and Monitor? Those are the ones with the cables going to the input board. Those 2 switches on the board can cause the output to fizzle and cut out and all kinds of issues because they dont get used. If your display is working fine, I would spray those and work them good. It took me 3 or 4 times before mine worked good.

  21. Welcome @Jim Walter, glad you found us. That receiver is a mainstay, and loved by many. Well worth putting back in shape. In a bit, you'll be able to post pictures..., we love pictures! @Rob has experience, as do several others on the site. Those jumpers will make a difference. they look like this (circled in red) :

  22. Happy Birthday Steve !!!! BTW - I was going through my parts box the other day and I found an envelope I had misplaced with some CDs in it. They were from Curtis - he said he burned them for me to listen to when I was working on his "stuff"... 😭 They are a bunch of compilations from various artists. I really enjoy listening to them so I'm glad I found them. I miss that guy.

  23. In my limited time at the CS so far, I did not meet or interact with Bill D. but I hear alot of talk about the Bill D. upgrade and his generosity and helpfulness toward CS members. I am happy for all that had the opportunity to share with him. It must have been quite the experience.

  25. >Luckily, since I fly a lot & have a 70lb bag allowance as it weighed in over 55lbs. Yeah, I would thrown my other stuff into the garbage to get room. The PL400II is great. It has the evil eye. I have a PL700II.

  26. I hit every garage or estate sale I run across. You never know what might be left over. My dad bought a 51 Ford for a buck one time at a garage sale. All my junk is from garage/estate sales.

  37. Found in Denver at a garage sale for $10 bucks. Luckily, since I fly a lot & have a 70lb bag allowance as it weighed in over 55lbs. After finding the Phoenix Audio forum, I began rebuilding it. I've since collected a few more Phase Linear pieces such as the 1400 EQ, 3300 II Preamp & just because it also looked cool a 5100 Tuner. I have been playing around with Sansui stuff and now have some real fun. Now I'm trying out some Carver stuff with a very clean M1.5t & C4000.

  38. 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.
