Carver “Premiere” AV-705x

25 Apr

I just scored this beauty from a guy on craigslist.  Rated for 125 watts x 5 with a THD <0.03%, I’m quite excited to give this piece a listen.  Apparently one of the channels is not functioning.  However, notice the five distinct heat sinks visible on the top of the unit.  This amp is a modular design, with a common power supply and capacitors supplying five individual channel cards.  Hopefully I can get the bad card repaired or replaced, but if not, it’s still going to make a great four channel amplifier.
