Carver C-9 [Expired]

Yes, I rarely get to use the 9/10 scale here. With this unit, the original faceplate was replaced with a new one that exceeds the factory one in appearance, at least in my opinion.   Many of you have seen my ads for rebuilt Carver C-9 units for 8 years now. I don't spit them out as fast as I can. In fact maybe only about 6 per year are rebuilt.   -------------- The photos that I am posting are accurate, so at least you can go from there and assume the rest of the unit matches.  Ok, so what did I do with this particular unit? !EVERYTHING!, starting from the 5 chips being replaced with metal jacketed military issue chips from the same era. These chips were used for guidance systems in m missels back in that day, and were strictly spec'd out for reliability. Did it change the sound? Not really, but they are still better than the original. I trade out the old transformer with a beefier one, MANY capacitors are replaced with new much higher quality ones from Wima and other better brands, I repaced many resistors with 1% metal film resistors to 'tighten' the circuit up to best spec. Even the RCA jacks are replaced with Manley Labs RCA jacks. If you don't get an excellent connection to start with, how can you process the signal to be better?  Yes, there is more, but I am putting this out there quickly for the holiday. My feedback is 100% for a reason. You even receive a  copy of the original manual along with a few notes to give you the best hints for the best installation.  The C-9 was designed to create a 3D listening illusion, and it succeeds better than any other such unit out there. I know, I have tried many of them. In fact I would sell something else if I were to ever find a better unit. After 8 years, no, I haven't
