    Talking should I pull the trigger on these?

    I have located a set of Carver Silver 9t's that are in fantastic shape for the princely sum of $750.00.

    They do not have original packaging or manuals however. Is anybody out there familiar with them?
    I know I will need one of Ben's ICs to make them work with my SDA's... so if he is out there and reads this, please pm me with how much for a modest setup....

    Thanks guys!

    That is a STEAL.

    What do you want to know about them?

    how they compare to the 7t's...
    power vs current... what to expect performance wise over my TFM-35 that currently serves as my main channel amp, and how they will match up to a rotel RMB 1095 that I am looking at for my other 5 channels....

    They are 575 wpc into 8 ohms, approximately 800 wpc into 4 ohms, and about 1100 wpc into 2 ohms. The only differences between the 7/9 models are lighted meters on the 9 and there is a slight "bump" in the bass response below 100 hz (@ 1dB). Otherwise they are the same. They are stable to at least 1 ohm.

    so i could expect to see 600+wpc at 6ohm... will I experience a significant improvement in sound quality over my current setup? How about with the Rotel for my other channels?

    Well, being a tube transfer modified unit, it WILL sound different from the 35, but if it's an improvement in sound quality depends largely on your tastes in sound. I've never hear a Rotel, so don't know what to tell you there.
