Power Amplifier - Carver M-400a
I won't go into too many details as you can read a great little write-up of this Carver M-400a amplifier HERE. Suffice to say if ROCKS! I'm not a huge Carver audio fan - mainly because most of the vintage carver units I pick up have serious issues. Most of these issues involve the switches and buttons and the terrors of oxidation. I'd be curious to hear whether people living far away from an ocean have the same trouble with connections on switches and buttons. Hey - that's what the comment field is for :)
How does it sound? I'm going by memory here because I haven't plugged this in for about a year, but I remember being pleasantly surprised by how clean this little cube is. I have a Carver "The Receiver 800" too, and that doesn't have quite the punch that this fellow does.
If you have any photos or stories about your Carver M-400a, please leave a comment or send me an email.
