  1. Thanks. This is the type of information I was looking for! Now I just need to clear off space on my workbench, and I can get started.
  2. Okay - I've opened up the TFM-15CB, and have diagnosed at least one problem with the amp. It is in dire need of recapping. The main caps are bulging, and I'm sure some or all of the smaller caps need replacement also. A few sellers on the bay have complete recap kits for around $35.00 for this amp.

I went looking for an amplifier to replace it with while it was out being serviced, as the shop I use takes two to five months due to how busy they are. I found a gentleman who has a complete Carver system for sale for a very reasonable price. The system consists of a pair of M-200t power amps, a C-2 preamp, an
