  1. Rock on! Happy Birthday Dick. Do it up, just the way you want to. Celebrate.
  2. To me, the C4000 with its internal amps, confuses things..., I have and use daily a 4000t. The surround channels are driven by proper external Carver amps, e.g., when set up for that purpose, I have an M4.0t on main L and R, an M1.0t on surround L and R, and C is driven by a power-steered m1.5. In addition to the technical thoughts above, this for me is Just how I like it..., YMMV.
  3. Welcome again, @RBQ. Well, I should share..., (been just slow at posting a thread on this...) but..., A friend on the Phoenix site helped me WOPL my Carver Corp., C-500. Very similar to the PL400, but with an extra row of transistors. Fun project..., if I ever get spare time to organize all the photos, I may post a thread. But, to be sure, a WOPL C-500 is one rare and interesting piece in my collection. WOPL folks were very good to work with. ...oh, and yes, don't forget the DC Protection module... πŸ˜‰ OK, realizing I'm the kettle calling the pot black
  4. Welcome, @RBQ. That PL400II is a nice amp. The m1.5t will be a different but also excellent experience. Your ears will tell you which you prefer. I have a Carver C-400, which is similar to the PL, but was the first amp Carver Corp put out after Bob Carver reformed post PL. I like it. and also like my m1.5's. OCCD is a disease that keeps many amps in the stable for different interests your own ears may demand. Looking forward to learning how your project to refresh your 1.5t amp goes. Please post! (and we like pictures !!) Oh, lots of good
  5. Happy Birthday, Barry. 66 a very good age of wisdom! But, take some time to celebrate, like Evlis !
  6. So I'm reading the Product Blurb on the pair designed for the MG3x series..., and feel like I might be getting into the realm of cables and magnets... Made of seven individual types of material combined to optimize the performance of the speakers. Especially offering gains in transparency, sound-staging, added bass extension and authority. This design offers an almost spooky see through like electrostatic clarity while maintaining your speakers’ musical authenticity. I'm all good with that. Maybe there's adamantine steel in there too! I like a little folklore, mystery
  7. So, I was checking out Magnarisers.com..., curious about a set for my MGIIIa's and, well, I'll be. Look at this image: Our Products (magnarisers.com) Found at the very bottom of the page..., Wonder who's setup that is?
  8. Welcome to the forum, @Grunge-Puppy. This is the place for Carver fans. Glad you found us.

    Get Back

    Hi @chiroacademy Good to see you back, and posting. Hope you are doing well, Mike.
  10. Welcome to the forum, @Jaws Nice handle. My (very attractive) sister in law had "JAWS" on her license plate on her convertible..., and, well..., got some interesting reactions (and propositions) at stop lights... LoL. In reality, JAW or J. A. W., were her initials, and JAWS was just a way to say the possessive, that it was her "Audi A-5 Cabriolet"... It's amazing what conclusions people will draw. πŸ˜‰ (and, no, I'm not drawing any conclusions here..., just sharing a funny story ! ) For the record, my wife is better looking so no one draws the wrong conclusion about me in my sto
  11. happy Birthday @kve777 ~ Enjoy the new year !
  12. Welcome Back !! @Vinyladdict. was one of these your old handle on the site?
  13. Check out this recent thread. Best Oppo replacement - source reviews - TheCarversite! BTW, your question is a tough one..., it's going to be full of opinion..., and, what matters most is your own ears... πŸ˜‰ Save those CD's !! and vinyl. Prices are going up on that content. LoL.
  14. OK, you will fit right in here !! That is a WAY COOL site..., I already shared it with an old time retired toolmaker friend of mine..., he couldn't believe he had not seen it before !! The project photos and restoration of old machines..., WOW! Welcome again!
  15. Oppo is a brand. The no longer make disk players..., and many are very sad that they got out of the business. Their products are recognized as being able to read just about ANY disk, and they have generally top-of-the-line DACs that create the best result from the bits and bytes on the CD/DVD/SACD/BlueRay, etc disk. I have some CD's that the DTL-200 will not read..., but the Oppo will. Models people like" 95, 97, 103, 105, 205..., used, they go for a high price, on Ebay..., but are worth it - with patience, you'll find one at a price to fit your budget...,
  16. Do Tell, what is the website, what's your handle there? There are many here on this forum that have past lives, and even current interests in that area...
  17. Welcome @Dave in Md., glad you found us. On your DTL 200 CD player..., a few thoughts for you... If it's been stored for 30 years..., it's likely that all it needs is a new belt. Do a search on the forum, or even on Ebay, for a new belt - that unit takes 2 belts, same size for both. Easy fix if that is all it is. Those CD players either die catestrophically, or just belts - most often the latter. I like the DTL in the stack..., it's a nice cosmetic match. HOWEVER, it's very old CD technology..., and, well, a modern CD player like an OPPO, or r
  18. Merrry Christmas To All. And enjoy the time playing Santa..., πŸ˜‰ πŸŽ… Best Wishes to enjoy time with your family and friends and experience the joy of giving, sharing, and thinking of your fellow man. πŸŽ„ And, don't forget to remember for a moment, the reason for the season..., ✝️
  19. Time to celebrate like Elvis! Happy Birthday !
  20. *****WARNING*****DANGER****** Blatant enabling Alert *****WARNING*****DANGER*****
  21. I noticed that unit has digital inputs? Is that to allow use of the internal DAC with other digital sources? Hmmm, (pondering out loud) could that Wolfson make streaming content better?
  22. Happy Happy Birthday ! Make it a good one..., extra effort in the holiday season! Cheers πŸ₯‚πŸΎ
  23. Welcome to the Forum..., The Carver Site has a lot for everyone. Love those two systems, you have, @Klamtucky. I bet you have an m500t with big meters in your future πŸ˜‰ OCCD is a journey, not a destination. In a few more thanks and posts - please post some pictures of your gear - we love pictures.
