I liked this unit so much I picked up a second one. One all original, the other with the MRKII upgrade. Lots of power in a small package and if you are a sucker for the vintage VU meters it's just icing on the cake. Paired up to the C1 with the BillD upgrade you will have a musical powerhouse combo.

re: M-500

I purchased my Carver M500T magnetic field power amp and it has never failed me in over 30 years. No moving parts- it is 'power in-power out' so your pre-amp volume control is the gas pedal. Clean and clear with tons of overhead. I set this up with my Tandberg 3002 pre-amp and a pair of Klipsch Heresy speakers on tripods in a gymnasium and the results were spectacular! Filled the gym with big sound.
