  1. Rebecca,

     

     I would be interested in the Carver C-9 unit FOR $100 + SHIPPING if it is still available. LMK, how you would like to be paid. Here is my shipping address:

      Rebecca,

       

       I just sent you $135 and believe that it will cover shipping. Size of the box matters in a case like this. Please let me know if it comes to more than that so I can reimburse you.

       

       Thanks, Greg

      Hello Greg,

      The unit yesterday via USPS. This is the tracking number:

      9534611752524092799035

       

      Here is a photo of the receipt:

      So the shipping was only $21.90 with USPS.  Since you paid $35 , I owe you $13.10 would you like me to send it to you via the same GJP inc you sent me the payment at? 

       

      Take care Rebecca

      Rebecca,

       

       We are square in my book. Do not worry about refund. I am happy that this worked out for you, and FWIW, I now remember that this is a C-9 unit that I upgraded for Barry years ago. It will be cool to have it here again. It has special meaning, and I can take step back in time when I open the top up and peek inside.

       

       Regards, Greg

    Might as well give it a shot. I was just looking at one the other day abnd missed it.

  3. Greg,

     

     I have a question that I trust you will have the best response for . Recently, I recapped an old rack ear C-9 along with replacing the RCA jacks. It worked just as expected and I was happy with it, so I sent it back to the customer. When she got it, she says that when switching in or out the narrow/wide button causes a pop. That was not the case for me at all. I want to know, having not heard that happening before, is there any idea that you would have as to what might cause this, and does it matter if the pop is little anyway? I don't want to do the wrong thing here, but I also don't want to chase ghosts if there is even a reason to.

     

       Thanks, Greg

      The narrow/wide switch is located in the early stage of the SH circuit, and so it tends to be a rather sensitive area for a mechanical, bouncy switch to introduce some noise. It's not uncommon to hear a light 'pop' on many SH iterations from this switch, so I personally wouldn't worry about it.

       

      Some people can be picky about such things though.

  4. Didn't want to include this in the thread. I can't relate directly but know what it is like in another way. These are things that you don't get over. You try and live with them. You have heard all of this, so that is about as much as I can say. 

     

      Respectfully, Greg

  5. Greg,

     

      I expect that you are quite busy at Nelion. Still, I have to ask if you would be interested in working on a Glassware Audio phono pre that has an issue. The trouble has already been narrowed down, but the tech presently working on it has hit a brick wall with Mr. Broskie, the designer of the amp. Mr. Broskie has been really lean on replying to emails, and when he does, the replies are one sentence or so. Not the help needed to troubleshoot his product. This has gone on for months, and I am almost ready to ask for the amp back. But, then what? I have some serious cash invested already. If you have interest, then I could have it shipped to you from Florida, where the amp is sitting right now. Or perhaps you can recommend someone for this repair. 

     

      Thanks, Greg

      Hello,

       

      For the time being, yes, I'm booked solid. What sort of trouble are we having? What is it about this unit that makes it so hard to troubleshoot? Schematics available?

      Greg,

       

        Thanks for the response. See? THIS is what I don't get from Mr. Broskie. A headshaker, since his products are incredible, his customer support is non-existent. 

       

      Ok, so yes there is a schematic for this unit, and yeas, we have narrowed it down to the first input section of the preamp. Here is the strange thing= Mr. Broskie has apparently cut two traces on this circuit board. I have no idea why. One cut was made whole by means of a jumper, but making a series connection instead of a parallel one. I get it. It was mistake in the board. The other one remains cut (it is also on the other channel just so you know, BUT in a Different location), with nothing having been done to it. 

         I can't speak as to what the present tech thinks about it. I have used him before with yet another Broskie product, with great results. Maybe this case needs a new set of eyes on it.

       

        Greg Will look for some photos/schematics

  6. If not yet spoken for, I will take the Gundry board.

     

      Greg  Just tell me where and how much to pay.

    1. Nahash5150

      Nahash5150

      The Gundry boards are always available. :D

      Greg,

       

        That's pretty much what I thought. Soooo, send two of them along if you would to:

       

       Just let me know the total and how you would like to be payed.

       

        Note: I have a power amp that may need some adjustment. It is a class D design by Pete Millet. I made it from a board that he offered. The channels are not perfectly matched. There are adjustments, but as I have stated so many times, I don't always have the knowledge to accomplish these sort of things myself. Let me know if you are interested.

      Okey. Also, these messages are public on profiles. I'll transfer to PM.

  7. Ok, so I am still trying to identify at times the part numbers for certain components on the 'original' C-9 circuit board. Do you have any info that?

     

      Dennis55 and I are trying hammer out some trouble with an original unit that I modded.

     

      Appreciate any feedback, Greg

      Likewise, I am waiting for Dennis and Rich to respond.

  8. Yes, much obliged. I am dealing with hearing aids that are supposed to be the best... HA! I says, you know, this would work out better if I just used an EQ set to my hearing loss. It is well worth a try.

  9. Man, 

      How could he turn that down!? I live in Powell, Wyoming. He would happily pay shipping, or else he just wants nothing! I am going to his house Sat to take a look at his listening environment. I will let you know soon.

     

        Thanks a million!

  10. Ok... Tell me more about Onkyo. A miss performing Cd player is no good to me for trouble shooting other equipment.  Anyway, the next will be my third.

      If you run into one of them, would you like to sell it to me? If so, what price works for you?

      $125 plus shipping for one with remote and original box. The Music Room in Colorado has one HERE that's a good deal and closer to you.

      Man, I appreciate the info. I will have to wait awhile, but these units are more common than I thought that they would be. Sounds like it is as good as I will ever need in my shop.

  11. I have been reading the CF amp build thread with some outside interest. On one hand, I find it to be a simple build, and I like that. Then there is the pure fact that even simple must be done correctly to avoid serious consequences. That is the parallel that is useful for me. You see, I am attempting to work on a N. Pass design from years ago, that yes, is simple, but unforgiving. Since there is little in the way of information, except for one partial schematic, it is threads, that actually are just that, threads of a bit of usable info here and there. In short, I very much appreciate your input as to keeping the wheat from the chaff on these topics. Accurate knowledge is valuable.

      Without a full schematic though...let me know if you need a hand.

      Thanks man. There are some basic measurements that I want to get a handle on. This is the beauty of stereo equipment. Should one channel be operational, you at least have an example to compare to. 

    4. Nahash5150

      That's true. Good strat.
