  4. No. Just normal hook up so I can listen to 4 speakers. I am looking for some splitters and cables so I can use the MXR as a third amp and hook up all 6 speakers.
  5. Are you using them bridged?
  6. Missed you guys at Carverfest. The M200's are sounding great and pumping those Cerwin Vega's very well.
  7. Hello, I can restore the C-500. They are very similar to a Phase Linear 700 - brute force linear power supply and gobs of output transistors. Restoration includes cleaning inside and out, replacement of consumable parts, upgraded components where appropriate, calibration and testing. 3 year parts and labor warranty. $400 + shipping.
  8. I haven't seen any restoration info on the Carver C-500 power amp, any recommendations?
  9. Can't wait to send my C1 in for service. Love my Carver gear!
  10. Thanks @RobA! Welcome to the forums!
  11. It took me awhile to get here but hey, I am here. Excellent work on the MXR-150 back in April Greg. Still working great and the little scratchy sound in the tape knob is completely gone. But the new car smell is gone. LOL
  12. I have two M500t amps, and had both restored by someone I found on eBay. I had major/minor problems with both, so I sent them to Greg to look at. Greg opened them and sent me photos of what he found, and it's clear that someone who does not know electronics can be taken advantage of, as I was to some degree. So, bite the bullet and get your amp done right, by Greg, the first time. You'll save yourself a lot of time and money. Looking at the attached "before and after" photo, even to my inexperienced eye I can clearly see the difference between the "'eBay build" and Greg's workmanship.

  15. I enjoy all kinds of music, any and all recommendations are welcome.

    Current collection of over 4000 CDs and about 480 LPs.

    M1.5 and C3

    I have had. A Carver 1.5 and C3 for 25 years. Something quit on it and I stuck it away until a few months ago. I contacted Greg at Nelion Audio about repairing these. While his reviews were excellent, I was still hesitant to send these to someone 1000 miles away. Gathering dust in my attic wasn't getting me anywhere either. I finally shipped them to Greg. They came back to me in less time than he quoted, even though he had some issues with his barn burning down. All I can say is if you are procrastinating, STOP! I had forgotten how good music can sound. I have these in my shop and I find
  17. Hey @Bobby1970! Welcome!
  18. Hi All! Greetings from the Philippines. Thanks Greg and Jenny!
  19. The Matsushita's are obsolete. These two relays are direct crossovers: Panasonic JC2AJ-B-DC24V OMRON G4W-2212P-US-TV5 That's all I've found so far. The relay specs are: 24VDC coil, 7A contact, 2 Form A, PCB mount Mouser and Digikey never seem to provide any crossover information. It's a shame.
  20. FYI - we do have some OEM fan motors now. Please contact us if you need a new motor for the PM-1.5.
  21. Greg ... I think those pics are from my A 500x. I must say, you did an awesome job in the repair/upgrade/renewal of this venerable piece of audio history. I am listening as I type these words, and happiness cannot fully describe the experience. Transcendence, rising from the Phoenix, back from the dead ... any of these are close to what this old amp experienced at Greg's expert hand. I thought about putting it on the trash heap, but Bob Carver is an audio god, and even if this is not one of his "pure" creations, it is part of the legacy so I wanted to do my part to keep it alive. So h
  22. Just sent in my Carver m1.0t for repair and some upgrades.Heard nothing but great things about nelionaudio!Hope they can bring her back to life!!!
  23. The A Series Carver Amplifiers were late in Carver's Production years. Although not Magnetic Field Coil amplifiers, they still inherited many of Bob's amplifier topologies that create an accurate, musical and powerful sound reproduction. Although the extent to which Bob was involved in the A series design is not know, it is unmistakably an extension of his earlier designs. The A-series amps utilize voltage rail switching to produce immense dynamic power without having to add cumbersome heat sinks. The high voltage rails are engaged by Power MOSFETS which modulate to the output signal and tur
  24. Hi Nelion Audio, I recently became nostalgic for my Carver amps and was quite happy to see that there are other people that care about them. This restoration and upgrade is impressive. Vinny
  25. I have always wanted one of these little technical marvels, and the opportunity arose when I bought one to power my C-4000's time delay speakers. Greg did a marvelous job getting my M-400 working flawlessly, and his communication with me about the process was just as good as his engineering skills. Thanks Greg.
