  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  7. "Besides being among the greatest musicians ever known- Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Hiromi, John McLaughlin, Branford Marsalis, Zakir Hussain, Mike Stern, Gary Husband, Simon Philips, Wayne Krantz and Steve Lukather all have something else in common. At one time or another, these legendary artists have counted on the supportive, melodic and propulsive bass playing of the amazing Tony Grey. Artists of such stature, virtuosity and high standards do not trust just anybody to hold down the foundations of their music. They seek out the best for live performances and recordings.

  8. I have a DBX 3BX-DS, A Sony Equalizer SEQ-333ES (rare), Yamaha Stereo, 31 Band EQ Q2031, Sony STRD 4ES Receiver, Sony 5 Disc SACD player in my 2 Channel stack. Waiting for the C-16 to come so I can replace the Sony with that and my 1.0t that has been sitting for years, hopefully it still works.

  13. There is no way that I could agree with you more. I find and lose synergy in my system, constantly changing things in and out as I do my builds. My Vincent preamp, though handy, doesn't quite get me there. It breaks down, and I build a 'temporary' preamp while it is being repaired. Uh, no, the temp preamp has a mating to the rest of my system that is astounding to me. Probably should write some of this shit down over the years.

  15. Thank-you for all the well wishes and the warm welcome. The journey begins, I just bought a C-16 and a TX8 so we will see how they do. Totally prepared to have to recap the C-16 given its age. Anyone know where there is a list of parts required or mods for that unit. I have looked around the site, still figuring it out. Sounds like this BiiD guy was the bomb, sorry I missed him. Anyone know who services these in British Columbia. After COVID, I will be able to deal with this stuff from my place in Blaine, WA where it is reasonable to ship to and from. I picked t

  18. Thom Rotella is certainly not new, but it's new to me, and I am enjoying this album a great deal. Some tracks remind me of The Rippingtons, and some tracks make me think Pink Floyd meets The Rippingtons, and some of it reminds me of Al Di Meola. The Thom Rotella Band, The Thom Rotella Band was released in 1987. This is very good with Sonic Holography engaged on the main 2 channel rig. https://www.discogs.com/artist/752202-Thom-Rotella

  19. Thanks again for the pointers, would be nice to source a replacement before taking the top off this thing. Most of the control buttons on the player are not working as well. Everything works when using the remote though so I’m hoping the contacts are simply in need of a cleaning. Still I picked this piece up cheap and it included five of the 10 disc magazines as well. It sounds pretty good as well.

  20. New to this site, recently acquired and M500T with a C16 preamp as well as a TLM-3600 10 disc CD changer. Wondering if anybody might have the specs for the LCD backlight bulb on the CD changer or know where a replacement LED bulb can be had. Impossible to see the display without it but seems to be a simple enough fix if I can get my hands on a bulb.

  21. Imperium, Heaven or Hell was released on October 30, 2020. "Fluent in musical genres from rock to jazz to metal, drummer Mika Brushane also has a successful solo project known as Imperium. Brushane writes all the music and lyrics, then plays drums, bass, keyboards, and adds backing vocals." You can read the rest of the review here... This band reminds me of Survivor. If you like big-hair, melodic rock, and I think you'll enjoy this album. I know I do. This one gets an 8.5 on the Sk1Bum 10 point scale.

  22. Holy Roller Baby, Frenzy was released on October 9, 2020. "Holy Roller Baby is the next emerging rock band we should all be excited about. The band’s new record, Frenzy, drops on October 9th, 2020 and shows them to be a highly-developed outfit, unafraid to mix heavy riff rock and gritty Motown-inspired grooves in the same set."

  24. I had actually found both the user and service manuals. Found the light on the exploded diagram but missed it on the parts list, was looking for #53. Did find the part number thanks to you so I’ll see if I can use that to source a replacement. Thanks for the tip!

  25. Hello gkml, 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. I don't know if you've already checked this out or not, but here's a link to the service manual: https://thecarversite.com/manuals/mandir/Carver TLM-3600 service manual.pdf There is a lamp parts section on page 13.

  28. If it sounds good to you, that is what is important. It is good you tried different setups before condemning the gear. I believe that is why most of us have a variety of gear to put together what sounds best to us. Glad to hear you have setup that is a keeper........grin

  29. Hi Kevin, We have the schematics and maybe an original parts list for the '16 in the manual database. The BillD mod was for the C-1/C-11. The C-6/16 had more in common withe the C-19, they are a bit of a different animal and not nearly as common as the C1/11 InnovativeAudio in Surrey currently has a C-16 for sale, I assume they could service one. I have dealt with them a few times, good folks. Which dbx unit do you have?

  32. Eagles, Live From The Forum MMXVIII was released on October 16, 2020. "With the passing of Glenn Frey in 2016, some might wonder whether The Eagles may ever fly quite as high as they once did. However, if there is one thing Live From The Forum MMXVIII proves it is that you can’t stop the best, pulling out the best in times of trouble. Recorded live at The Forum in Inglewood, California,Frey’s son Deacon and Pure Prairie League multi-instrumentalist Vince Gill joined Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B.

  37. Jazz In Pink, Joy! was released on October 30, 2020. " ‘Joy’ is very much the Gail Jhonson show. With ten of her own impeccable compositions this long time Musical Director for Norman Brown produces and plays keyboards throughout. The fact she is joined in her endeavours by label mates Kim Waters. Marion Meadows and Paul Jackson Jr. serves simply as the icing on a particularly tasty cake, a fact that becomes obvious from as early as the opening track, the deliciously smooth ‘Joy Joy’, that incidentally was the first single to be serviced to radio."
