Introducing for sale.....
I am offering for sale my CARVER CT-17 Sonic Holography preamplifier/tuner. It is in excellent condition, second-owner unit that was part of my system for the past several years. I am including CARVER's rare PRH-1 learning remote . As an added bonus, I'm including my CD player (FREE!), the CARVER TL-3100 which features CARVER's "Digital Time Lens". This feature was designed to gently soften the often "sterile" CD sound making it more "analog" adding depth and realism. The original remote for the CD player is also included.
These great sounding pieces would represent a deal for someone who desires an "old school" stereo system.
Why am I selling?
I came upon a deal for other vintage stereo equipment and decided to upgrade.
Your purchase will be carefully packaged to insure that reaches you in the same condition that was shipped
Please note that I've not been able to locate the original manuals. I will include paper copies of the manuals if not found by the time of sale.
Thanks for looking!
