Ahh Ok.So the mods are even working the wee hours of the morn.
Bruce (Tour2ma) you wanted the link to my quote, here it is:
Actually, a very interesting read about how SS designs progressed and some brief discussion about the different topologies.
Thank you, sir.... I do appreciate.
Anything I can use to budge the immovable object known as F1nut?
You're a riot, Alice.
I'm telling Mom.
Hi, I know this is an old thread but I just stumbled on it and maybe someone will see this. The OP asked about why so many people used old Carver amps with SDA speakers. Instead of why, I am wondering how? One time, years ago, I blissfully and ignorantly hooked up a Carver M400 (no 'a', no 't') to my SDA CRS speakers. When I turned it on it let out a very loud screaming howl. This was a sound that should never come from an audio system. It damaged my speakers. I found out later that the Carver is not a common ground amp and is basically incompatible with SDA speakers. So unless you intentionally don't use the umbilical cord that connects the left and right channels (then what's the point of using SDA speakers at all) how do you use this Carver/SDA combination? I know I have certainly avoided it ever since that incident.
Some Carver Amps ARE common ground. I have a pair of M1.0t's bi-amping my SDA 2.3TL's right now!
I bought two carver TFM-35X's for $740 shipped. For me it was a good value.
They were my first amps with real power and I thought I made a good choice.
5 years later when I had more money to spend I sold them for the same amount. They treated me very well for 5 years.
