  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Carver-C-16-Preamplifier/184658056575?hash=item2afe7a557f:g:I3cAAOSwrJJgI009 FYI... A C-16 just showed up on ebay...
  6. 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.
  7. It took me 6 months to find my C-16. As soon as I got it, I sent it to Nelion for a complete service. They don't show up often, so you need to grab one when you see it. Are you aware that the C-6 is identical to the C-16 except for the color of the faceplate? When I opened up my C-16, I noticed that the mainboard is stenciled C-6. C-1's and C-11's are also great preamps. You can get faceplates for these to change the color (either anthracite or black). Pricing is dynamic, my guess on price for units in nice or better condition are: C
  8. I was growing up in Chicago during this period. He and his sidekick, Gary Miers, were a big thing with their anti-disco radio show. While I was couldn't get into disco, I was never a fan his show. He was always controversial. During the Iran hostage crisis, he would make prank overseas calls to Iran while on the radio. IIRC, the state department had to intervene through the radio station to get him to stop.
