I received this preamp with the matching amplifier and turner last year. As you can see from the photos, this unit is in very good cosmetic condition.

While this preamp worked fine when I got it, the amplifier had some issues due to old caps, so I decided to re-cap this unit. Although they cost more, I used Elna Silmic II capacitors, which are one of the best electrolytic capacitors you can buy for audio, and are far superior to the caps Carver used originally. The replacement caps are physically larger than some of the originals,and as such I mounted some of the larger caps on the bottom side of the board which provided plenty of clearance. While I was working on this unit I cleaned all the controls with Dexit, and also changed the power LED to blue.

See my other ad for the matching tuner.

The price is fair and FIRM. Shipping will be a flat $50 in Canada. Payment by EMT preferred. I accept PayPal from members with good feedback if they cover all the fees, and have a confirmed PayPal address for shipping. Local pickup welcome.


Preamp, careful packing, old caps on request
