  1. I agree with @BarryG I have both. The CT-7 is, IMHO, the best of the Preamp-Tuners Carver produced. The remote is hard to find, but aftermarkets remotes are available. Besides the better phono section (which includes 2 phono - MM and MC), the C-1 also supports an external processor input (nice feature if you use an EQ or Tube Buffer). They both support 2 tape decks and Sonic Holography. There are lots upgrades available for the C-1; most notable are the BillD mod and Gundry filter. While I suppose the CT-7 can be upgraded, I've never heard or s
  2. Great score! Nice addition to your other number ones!
  3. I'll see your $25.01 and raise you $4.99. $30
  4. I'll jump in and raise you $5 (oops - not poker) $25
  5. A bunch of manuals showed up on ebay. I went through them, it looks like there may be 3 that we don't have in the database. If this can be confirmed, I shall buy them and donate them to the site. The manuals are: SX-20 Service Manual KLW Audio (M2030, M2080, K MOS, 2100, 2200, 4200) Service Manual PMA-2022, PMA-2062, PMA-2100, PMA-2150, PMA-4075 Service Manual. I've been keeping eyes open for manuals we can add to the Database, but its hard to find something we don't have. (Of course when we do get it, someone ad
  6. I like the reel to reel. I actually have two, the other is an Akai GX-636. I use them daily, largely for background music while I work. The tape is twice as wide as a cassette, while the speed is twice as fast on its slowest setting (3.75 ips) or 4 times as fast (7.5 ips) at its fastest (cassette plays at 1.875 ips), so it has a much better response than a cassette. I use only new tapes. The sound is great, it does have a very analog sound to it. My first reel to reel was a Sony TC-850. It had a alot of noticable hiss. My current units have none. I've found a te
  7. Just to clarify... the C-11 is a slightly newer version of the C-1. The C-1 has a gray faceplace (anthracite), while the C-11 is black. The C-11 has a precog board in it (its not very usefull) and slightly different buttons. The BillD mod is the same between either of these amps since they are essentially the same. The C-11 is more of a rare bird, you'll see 10 C-1's for every C-11. Used the C-11 commands maybe $100 more on the market.
  8. The BillD C-1 (or C-11) will outshine the stock C-4000. The design philosophy of the C-1 was (if I can paraphrase BillD) "Make it sound like it wasn't there". The engineer that developed the mod, focused on noise reduction throughout the preamp. Of course, we are comparing a standard preamp (C-4000) with an upgraded unit (new op amps, bi-polar audio caps replacing polarized caps in the signal path, upgraded resistors, etc). Many of these updates can be applied to the C-4000, but its hard to beat the value and quality of a BillD C-1.

  10. Welcome. I'm a fan of the TFM series, I've got at least of every series except the TFM-75. The -15 is often underrated, but its a great amp. It's a great feature to have Left and Right attenuators (like the -6, -35, and -55), allowing you to blend in speakers with different efficiencies (and who doesn't like the meters!). Welcome aboard. This is a great source for technical info and the people are great.
