Classic little 200 wpc amp, hefty little lump. Its unusual as its a magnetic field amplifier*. 120v USA Voltage you'll need a step down. Airlink do some nice ones.) This is in very nice conditionand had me frankly astonished when Bob ICHM brought it over to have a listen, I greedily had to have it. Only for sale as I'm getting back into cycling and can't afford two expensive hobbies!
These are scarce and generally go for between £200 and £350 (generally ratters too) very very rarely appearing on these shores. Many of them were black, so its nice to see a silver (toward champagne) one. The LEDS are cool on the front too. £200 posted tracked - its heavy at 13lbs for a 7" cube! Limes not included. Looks expensive so high on "WAF". Looks hardly used, Bob Carver upset a lot of people with the high end sound of his amps given the relative price point.
*"Magnetic field coil power amplifier" - audio amplifiers of the vacuum-tube era used transformers, incorporating coils of wire, to convert the high-voltage, low-current output of the output tubes to a low-voltage, high-current output suitable for loudspeakers. Output transformers are no longer necessary with amplifiers, including Carver's, that use transistors. Carver's U.S. Patent 4,218,660, first applied in his model M400 power amplifier, describes a power supply whose input switches on and off at an ultrasonic rate to adapt to the varying power demand of the amplifier. The innovation is in the power supply, not the amplification circuitry, and in the use of switching, not in the use of a coil or coils.
