How to separate a Carver HR-732 AV Receiver into Pre Out & Main In?
I bought a Carver HR-732 knowingly dead. I then found out the varistors were broken thru, transformer primary was fried...., Anyway, I managed to bridge it to lite up again, w/o its circuitry.
Now I wonder if anyone can supply me with ciruit diagrams (schematic and physical) and show me how and where to separate this receiver into two parts: "pre out" and "main in".
This machine was made in Japan. Poorly designed, with less-than good materials, like the pcb material. many SCR's, diodes, IN4184's, triodes were over-heating the boards, display backlite blown. Some ego posters here or somewhere else (not sure) blamed the Japanese made Carvers badly. But I can't agree per se. Japanese made and still make the world's best electronic products, (except those made outside Japan). Japan has the most serious workforce, strongest smt and wave-soldering equipment and equipment manufacturers in the world. Furthermore, no oem manufacturers would ever override the principals' design and pmo. (for those)Guys: don't speak before you think.
Thanks for reading.
