  1. In need of a Carver Premier 5 channel amp cosmetic parts and rack handles. :|:

      Nothing here.  :(

       

  2. Looking for a C1 volume knob. 

  3. Hello all,

    Merry Christmas from warm (54 deg F), rainy Winthrop. Snow is about washed away.  Regarding my music system -  since I am 81 and wear hearing aids, the best in the world is no longer needed. I certainly couldn't tell speakers apart as I could 30 years ago. I do have good hearing aids, though. Starkey wireless (but not the newer Bluetooth ones) XINO 110. The frequency response has about 6 channels. Can be set for 4 different response curves. The curve I use at symphony is essentially flat from 20 to about 15k Hz. I can hear timpani and piccolos.

    I want to get the Carver TX-11 working so I can get better FM response than the Rotel receiver.

    The problem is that the manual that came with my TX-11 does not remotely resemble the TX-11 owner manual I downloaded from this site. Also the service manual does not reflect my unit. The service manual shows that the tuner has 2 crystals, X501 and X502, and 2 trim capacitors, TC502 and TC507.  My tuner has only 1 crystal and a single trim capacitor of a completely different shape than the ones shown in the various repair pages here and on YouTube.

    Am I at a level that I can upload photos of the PC boards, and a scanned copy of my owner manual?

      Good job!

       

      You need an o-scope to adjust the refence frequency amplitude for the tuning controller.

       

      By probing Pin 2 of the TC9147BP IC to a ground refence, adjust TC-501 for maximum amplitude.

       

      Pins 2 & 3 are the X-tal oscillator reference circuit.

      Interesting. But you know, it could be a transitional unit. It could be an 11a, but not fully transitioned with the labeling.

      Hello,

       

      Sounds like you have a TX-11a or b. Try downloading the TX-11a service manual and compare.

       

      There aren't any security restrictions on manual downloads.

      If you turned it off, then after just a couple seconds or minutes turned it back on again, it tends to bark a little louder when it starts up.

    After falling in love with the sound of some B&Ws at the audio shops, I hunted these down on Ebay. Went with the DM 303s with an LCR-3 center channel, the DS6 THXs are coming in tomorrow for the rears!

  18. 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.

      Cool! Which Nelson Pass Model? His work is very interesting.

       

      As for the tube build thread, I'm glad you found it informative. There are many ways to do things, and properly understood, many are valid...and some not so much.  :D
