    Since we are practicing social distancing of 6ft I have been doing that with my car too........instead of riding someone’s rear end.......😂
  2. Happy Birthday! May your day be blessed and you enjoy your day.......grin
  3. @CT-Seven I don’t have any complaints either. The local HyVee store mails packages which saves me driving across town. And my mail carrier is great also, and easy on the eyes too......grin
  4. The words came across in my head to the tune of Motorcity Madhouse by Ted Nugent......😀
  5. Welcome! Thanks for the pic! Nice looking receiver and I thing it’s cool you bought it new and still have it! Like others, I have bought used gear, refurbished it, and listened to it. But we all enjoy it.......grin
  6. OCCD is the place to be listening at home is essentially free six feet apart
  7. I like the look of the Yaqin, it’s the brand of tube amp I have. Keep us posted on your “evaluations”.....grin
  8. Welcome to the site! Glad you found us! We talk all things Carver and other gear too. Nice to get back into the audio world again......grin. Take a look around and enjoy the site!
  9. Yes, it happens to all of us. You sign up on this site and get a membership. Then you start hanging out here. Then you become infected from the rest of us carriers (enablers). This is worse than the Corona virus.......grin
  10. Welcome to the site! I would hook up the equipment in different combinations and listen to a few tracks and see what sounds best to you. If you are going to keep all your equipment (for any future systems......read OCCD here......grin) I would refurbish it so you can really enjoy it. I agree with Sk1bum, the C-1 and 4000 series preamps sound great when refurbished and the M500t amplifier as well. I own those same pieces and enjoy them. Experiment and see what you think.......grin
  11. But Itch, being tru to the OCCD cause as well as I can, I have two good ones in the closet......grin
  12. Great story with a good ending! The friendships created is what makes this hobby rewarding......grin
  13. I don't have a TL-3300. Someone else might or you may have to buy another one and take 2 and make one good one.....grin.
  14. Itch ole buddy (gotta wonder what’s up when some says ole buddy ....grin) I have a couple of complete units that are on the “repair” shelf in my garage (shop). I can send you the whole thing or just the part (s) you requested. If you could please send me a picture of what you need to make sure I send you the right part, I will try and get it out to you in a day or two. Also, if anyone else needs something, this will be a parts unit for the community. Let me know.....grin
  15. Happy Birthday John! May your day be blessed and you enjoy your day!
