  1. Yeah, and it is the Model 16 and can handle up to 16 amps. However, with my setup, that may not be enough! I got it at such a great price, it was almost like I was stealing it. I remember, bought it years ago and have been happy ever since! I have a Monster Power HTS 2600 upstairs in my HT setup. Paid a bit more for that, but still feel the Powevar is a better unit! Although it doesn't have switched outlets like the 2600, so that is one plus for the Monster Power unit.
  2. I have to admit, my gear does fit rather well in the rack! And damn it, yes it does look good! Very solid also, not that cheap shit the stores put out currently. I have toyed with making a custom rack, something with a mix of metal and wood, but by the time I look at the costs, then I look at what I have and say, not worth it!
  3. The rack was one I bought many years ago, gosh back in the 90's from a store in our mall that sold audio gear and audio furniture! Solid oak, well oak plywood. Definitely not the cheapo stuff you see nowadays! The low stand next to it was the matching TV stand! Bought them as a set. I think I paid over $350 back in the 90's, so wee quite expensive!
  4. Here is a close up of the main stack as it sits currently! (This was taken as I was putting the Sunfire in the stack!)
  5. Welcome aboard! Way too much gear here to get you on the OCCD express! Buckle up and enjoy your ride!
  6. Okay, I've finally passed the Novice level, so I can post pics of my system, and do it on the proper forum!!! As I mentioned in my new member intro, this has been a 15++ year long journey in the making (and I am not done by any means)! This is my current setup in the basement of my new house since my divorce! I am running a Sunfire 300x2, C-16, SDA-490T, TX-12 (going upstairs to bedroom since I don't use this system for radio), TD-1770, BSR EQ3000, Realistic APM-500, MSB Link DAC, and Avid Diva II turntable! Some changes are coming - as I said,
  7. Welcome aboard! OCCD is a sickness, but it is the best one I know of! Glad you are starting your journey!
  8. I think he has more invested in his gear than I have in my house!!! That is awesome. I would love to hear a pair of the Carver tube amps! Very impressive. Thanks for sharing! (Not enough drool on the Saint Bernard pic to match my actual drooling!)
  9. Welcome aboard. Nice collection of amps! It is a long journey you are about to embark on with this site. A bunch of enablers that make you want to add more gear to your collection!
  10. Welcome aboard! As Brian_at_HHH stated about OCCD, once you get your first piece, you have started on that long and wonderful spiral of adding to your collection. Hope you enjoy the ride!
  11. Welcome aboard! Newer member myself, but always searched for information on this site before joining. Vast knowledge on this site! The only problem I have had is that I now want to own more Carver gear than I already have!
  12. I appreciate all the "Welcome" wishes! Unfortunately I know enough to be dangerous with a soldering iron. Not one to shy away from any task, as long as I feel I have good direction to go in (aka - as far as knowledgeable people are willing to guide me). Here are a couple of other pics of my "Vinyl Den"! This is the "Listening Area"
  13. I am also going to apologize in advance. I haven't had much time to learn the posting "ins" and "outs" and "do's" and "don'ts".
  14. Thanks for the very warm welcome! I really am not sure I will ever be able to stop the addiction, but it is a good one to feed! "Welcome @2chGearBuff to the "Carver Hybrid Amazings" club, too @BarryGand I both have a pair of Amazing Originals with the full-length ribbon and crossover upgrade kit. Love them too." Thanks. The one thing I am not sure of is if I have the crossover upgrade kit on mine. I never pulled the back cover off to investigate. Love the way they sounded from the day I got them! So, I figure, don't mess with it if you like the way it sounds!
  15. Just joined a few weeks ago and finally getting around to introducing myself. I hail from Central NY. I used to be on one of the other Carver forums of days gone by, went by icravcarver for those that may remember back in the day! I've been collecting Carver gear since the early 90's (after college!!). My first exposure to Carver was back when I was in middle school (8th grade) and an older neighbor, friend of my brother and sister, who know I was into stereo gear, took me to one of his buddies houses to see his new setup! Carver M-400 (not sure if it was a "t" version), C-9, Kenwood turn
