  1. Hi all, my name is Peter New to the forum and to Carver audio equipment. First time posting on an audio forum. I found a used and abused TFM-35 (made in Japan) this summer. Did a partial recap (PS), some diodes and resisters replaced, new VU filament bulbs, new Alps Blue pot and aluminum knob. Working like a champ since, it's like a warm graceful accurate and charismatic giant. Cost me €165 all in so far. A few weeks after the TFM-35 was reborn, my brother saw a C-11 preamp for sale. Carver gear is super rare in Ireland - how lucky is that!?! It was eventually acquired, works fine. Sounds pretty amazing to my ears. cost €80 I plan partial BillD modifications for this preamp: Caps, some resistors, transformer, rectifier, pot cleaning/some new ones, remote control for volume. I came here for the modification details, hope to be able to contribute in some way... seems like a nice community here Gears for my ears: - Monitor Audio RX6, Wharfedale Opal 90, Van Damme Blue Cable, Dedicated silent PC with Hi Res Media fed dig-optically to... Cambridge Audio Azur 740c CDP/DAC, Sony PS-T33 with mods, Nagaoka mp11 boron, Sony ST-333L, Arcam A85 integrated with phono mm/mc card, Carver C-11, Carver TFM-35... Other bits: Sony HMK-808, Revox A77 r2r, Luxman L30... getting a full overhaul. I put a few photos here, not sure if that works ok. The box of components on the floor contains some nice new capacitors for both units. mmmm..... capacitors ..... Happy weekend everyone ☺️
