  4. Carver service bulletin C1-2 provides a resistor chart for reducing the gain of the Main 1 output. Would love to have a multi-position switch that would allow me to choose different gains. Mine is currently set for the 21dB reduction, but no longer need that much. The normal output of Main 2 is too high for the small space I am in. Secondly, how about leds that you could adjust the color from an external source? My son used to install car kits that allowed drivers to adjust headlight leds using a phone app. Not sure if the technology is small enough to be used in audio applications. Just wondering?
  5. Last month I purchased a pair of B&O Pentas', and as the speakers made in the early 90's, they had some exterior damage and I talked the seller down to a decent price of $600 (these were $5000 dollars when they were new). I plugged the units in and all "seemed" to work well. I was aware that the screen on the unit would not turn on if it was not attached to a B&O music player and figured I was in the clear. However upon getting them to the house, acquiring the proper cables and digital to analog converters for the unit, I set them up and... the speakers failed to turn on. I have since opened the speakers and found only a couple of lose ends that needed to be reattached in the base of the unit, however i'm positive that does not account for the many things that can go wrong with them. The fuses are being replaced as well. Both units have 150 watt amps and have circuitry that run all the way to the top of the five foot tall, 9 driver speakers. Anybody know what I can/should do in this position? Nelion Audio came out to the NY Audio show and thats how I knew to contact you guys so thanks!
  6. Restoral of this little gem involves replacing all electrolytic capacitors, reconditioning of the output transistor thermal isolators, replacement of critical resistors and pre-drive transistors, service bulletins and full cleaning inside and out. Full restore price: $350
  7. Welcome! Watched part of that rugby final. Nice win!
  8. Hi, Do you have them for the M400 as well? Please email me information.
  9. Hi All, First time Forum member to any Carver forum...all the way from Johannesburg South Africa..Rugby World Champions..2019..ha..ha Looking forward to getting my M400 fixed (PSU Cap blew), and maybe upgrading at a later stage. Well done Greg and Jenny!
  10. <burp> 'skuse me. Howdy folks!
  11. Hi all. Just registered. Have been on other Carver forums as Thall. Very close to pulling the trigger on getting my M-500t in for the MKII upgrade. C1 pre will be next for the Biil D mod.

    Yamaha M2 Amplifier

    I have a Yamaha M2 Amplifier and was wondering what could be done to bring it up to date or refreshed up and any modes you may recommend. What cost range would I be looking at?
  15. Hello! We missed you also. Make it happen next year!
  16. Missed you at this years CarverFest. I will do my best to make next years event.
  17. OK, I am here. Hey Kingman.
  18. Welcome to you both!
  19. Hello... I've joined the herd! Looking forward to getting my Carver gear repaired.
  20. I'm here; where's the donuts????
  21. just need to souder on the new resistor!
  22. I received a new fan motor just need to souder the new resistor on and plug it in. thanks
  23. I have rebuilt them and it's hit or miss. If the brass bushings are worn, then no amount of rebuilding helps.
