FOR SALE IS THE WELL-REVIEWED AND PRAISED CARVER THEATER GRAND SERIES II 5.1 SURROUND SOUND PREAMP PROCESSOR. READ THE REVIEWS IN THE LINKS BELOW TO SEE HOW THIS BEAUTY/POWERHOUSE MEASURED UP TO PROCESSORS COSTING MANY TIMES MORE! THE ORIGINAL MSRP WAS $3,495, BUT DUE TO A RECENT UPGRADE, IT'S JUST COLLECTING DUST NOW, SO I'M MOTIVATED TO MOVE IT ON TO A NEW OWNER.

ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY - INCLUDING THE EXCELLENT MM PHONO STAGE AND BUILT-IN AM/FM TUNER - WITH ONE EXCEPTION. AS THE PHOTOS SHOW, THE HORIZONTAL ROW OF LITTLE YELLOW LIGHTS THAT ARE BASICALLY LED SELECTOR BUTTONS FOR THE TUNER PRESETS DO NOT ILLUMINATE, NOR DOES THE SMALL RECTANGULAR WINDOW AT THE BOTTOM LEFT OF THE FRONT DISPLAY, WHICH SHOWS ICONS FOR "DOLBY" AND "DTS". THIS UNIT ALLOWS DIMMING OR DEFEAT OF THE PANEL LIGHTS, AND AS I ALWAYS DEFEATED THE FRONT PANEL LIGHTS (AS MANY HOME THEATER ENTHUSIASTS PREFER TO DO), THIS WAS NEVER AN ISSUE FOR ME. AS THE PHOTOS SHOW, ALL THE OTHER PANEL LIGHTS WORK FINE. FOR THIS REASON ONLY, I'M RATING WHAT'S REALLY A "9 1/2" CONDITION AS "8".

THIS UNIT REQUIRES A SPECIAL DB-25 ADAPTER CABLE IN ORDER TO HOOK UP A 5.1 CHANNEL DVD OR UNIVERSAL PLAYER TO ITS SPECIAL 6-CHANNEL INPUT. THE CABLE IN THE PHOTO IS MADE BY CARVER (I ORDERED IT FROM THEM), AND IS INCLUDED, AS IS THE ORIGINAL MANUAL, THE FACTORY-SUPPLIED GLASS ISOLATION PLATFORM, AND THE TOUCHSCREEN LEARNING REMOTE, WHICH IS ITSELF PROBABLY WORTH NEW WHAT I'M ASKING HERE FOR EVERYTHING. DO YOUR RESEARCH, AND YOU'LL FIND THAT THIS REMOTE IS AMAZING - FULLY BACKLIT, LEARNING CAPABILITY TO CONTROL MANY OTHER COMPONENTS, MACRO CAPABLE FOR SEQUENTIAL POWER-UP AND -DOWN OF ALL OF YOUR EQUIPMENT WITH THE PUSH OF ONE BUTTON, ETC, ETC.

** PLEASE NOTE - THIS UNIT WAS MADE BEFORE HDMI INPUTS BECAME THE NORM, BUT FOR THOSE LIKE ME THAT PREFER TO RUN THEIR VIDEO DIRECT FROM THEIR SOURCE TO THEIR DISPLAY (AS I DID WITH MY HIGH-END PROJECTOR), AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A DEAL-BREAKER. BUT, FOR FULL DISCLOSURE...NO HDMI SWITCHING.

HAVING SAID ALL OF THAT...THE SOUND IS WHAT REALLY SAYS IT ALL - ALMOST TUBE-LIKE, EXTREMELY REVEALING, JUST A PLEASURE TO LISTEN TO REVEALING AND ACCURATE SOURCES. MORE INPUTS THAN I KNEW WHAT TO DO WITH, XLR OR RCA CONNECTIONS TO AMPLIFIERS, AND TRUE AUDIOPHILE SOUND....AND BUILT LIKE A TANK. IF YOU WANT YOUR PROCESSOR MONEY TO GO TO BELLS, WHISTLES, AND PRETTY LIGHTS, LOOK ELSEWHERE, IF YOU WANT HIGH-RESOLUTION SOUND, SUPERB RELIABILITY AND AUDIOPHILE EXCELLENCE, THIS IS THE ONE TO BEAT.

I WILL SHIP AT THE BUYER'S COST, ACTUAL COST, SO WAIT FOR ME TO BOX UP AND WEIGH BEFORE PAYING. HOWEVER, I WILL ABSORB THE PAYPAL FEE FOR A FULL-PRICE OFFER.

** THIS IS A CRAZY LOW PRICE FOR A UNIT OF THIS CONDITION, SO PLEASE, ONLY SERIOUS INQUIRIES, AND NO LOW-BALLING. READ THE INFO BELOW, AND YOU'LL UNDERSTAND WHAT A BARGAIN THIS IS. THANKS!
