    Nice and clean - Very nice!
  2. Long time Member Now Retired - Time to Dust off my passion! I joined this group several years ago to try and bring myself current on the latest Carver Equipment trends. Now that I'm retired, I have plenty of time to devote to my longtime passion - High Quality Audio. Over the years I either purchased or was given various Carver Components dating back to the 70's, 80's and 90's. What I need help with is deciding what keep and what to put on the market for true Carver devotees. I currently have an "as built" M500-T Amp, (2) TFM-25 Amps, C-1 Preamp, C-4000 Preamp, TL-3300 CD Player, Carver Model Seven Preamp/Tuner, Carver Hologram Generator, A dbx unit whose Model I've forgotten some of which will power a Mint Set of 1979 JBL 4311's. My question is Which Amps are better/worth keeping and what, if any, upgrades would they need (I like the M500t) but would like your input. Which Pre-Amp? The C-1 (no upgrades but spotless) Same with the C-4000 and which one would compliment the M500t. As far as a Tuner, which Model Carver Tuner would play best the with whichever components you think I should keep. I forget the Model Seven which is open for trade or recommendation. My issue is, pretty sure which Amp and Speakers I'm keeping - Nothing is set in stone except the JBL's - Love those things. I purchased most, if not all of this gear at the Camp Butler PX on Okinawa. I was up the hill at Futenma - yeah, I was a Rotor Head. So, if any of you Gentlemen Carverites wouldn't mind helping out a tired, broken-down, worn-out Retired Old Jarhead, I will be forever in your debt!
  3. Chops - Two quick questions - Whats the difference between the 4000 and the 4000t I'm looking at Tuners - I don't listen to a ton of AM/FM. That being said, do I really need the 11a or could I just go with a TX 2 or a TX 8 Thanks! Tom
  4. Thanks for the steer - I ended up getting the 4000t - nice looking component! Do I need the Mod & who does them?
  5. kve777, That sounds like a fair deal - I was just about to pull the trigger on a trade with a guy on eBay. I've got a like new CT-Seven and he has a TX-11a straight up trade we each cover our own shipping. Any interest? My CT-Seven is in use now, works and looks like new? Tom
  6. kve777, What are you asking for the TX-11a and does it have the rack handles? Tom
  7. Thanks for the quick reply! I had to move fast if I wanted the C-1 - I went with it! Is there information on the site regarding the BillD Mod? and is there a companion Tuner in that Series? Thanks a million for the input - I was leaning that way- just needed a push! Best Regards! Tom
  8. Good Morning!, I'm in the process of reverting back to Vintage Gear and have a question. I just picked up he Carver M 500t Amp (in the shop getting MkII Upgrade) I also have the Carver TL-3300 Pre/ Tuner. My question is: Which Pre Amp: Carver C-1, C-4, C-6 or stay with the TL-3300? Which is the better unit for the Amp I'll be running? I originally had (still have) 2 TFM-25's and used the TL-3300 as my Preamp. Thanks! Tom
