Carver MXR-130, AKA 'The Receiver' Upgrades

Carver MXR-130, AKA 'The Receiver' (Carver C-1 pre-amplifier, TX-11 FM tuner & TFM-25 amplifier) Spec output 130 watts RMS (actual bench test output 156 watts RMS.)

"Carver's MXR-130 has retained its value in vintage circles as Bob Carver's first receiver; for incorporating his C-1 pre-amplifier, TX-11 Asymmetrical Charge Coupled Detector FM tuner, & TFM-25 amplifier. Since its' heyday, Carver gear has found favour beyond curiosity factor amongst modders who enjoy unleashing a myriad of aural wonders from within."
