good sounding preamp at a fair price, especially considering well serviced by someone good.
Over $100 just spent with "super tech". Thats a deal price, would be $200 ish any other vintage shop.
Had an issue with one channel when using tone controls...would drop a channel if tried to use them. Tech found a couple of bad caps. And now all is well.
Thorough cleaning of all/many switches and controls, possible few more parts replaced.
Cosmetics decent - say 7 out of 10, compared to a few other unrestored examples. One noticeable scratch in the charcoal finish around some knobs. Otherwise faceplate good or better than good.
Phono stage working and a decent sounding one at that.
Has the Carver Holographic thing - some people swear by it. Some not. Certainly interesting. Involves speaker placement and time shifting and a bit of voodoo perhaps? Switchable on or off - so enjoy or ignore.
Sounds noticeably better than anything I've owned or heard by way of preamp in the $400 and under range.
I just sold the amp i was using with this, and I own 3 more preamps as good or better than this one - so it is surplus.
Interesting trades considered.
Lowball offers go straight to spam and stay there.
Can discount a little if pickup at my place, or buy more stuff - otherwise I don't play games with prices - it is what it is. On occasion, i will drop a price - but I then change my ad price. Please refer to Ebay or kijiji to do your auction offers or grinding moves.
These are selling for $300 plus/minus on Feebay - you do math with US dollar, US shipping.
Willing to ship and wont be too costly, as its not super heavy. Probably run you $50? I'm real good at packing.
Note - I just listed more Carver stuff. C-1 and M-1.5t amp. Check other ads.
Can also deliver for free to Calgary or Red Deer, on my schedule.
