Carver PT-1250 Amplifier

I got the PT 1250 amp around 1992. It was amazing. The headroom of the PT 1250 will make any speaker beyond what you thought was possible. The front speakers were Mirage and the rear was powered by the Carver M500 amp with M&K speakers. The bathroom scene in Full Metal Jacket came alive. I actually had to leave the main listening area as the room was literally breathing. I still have both amps and other Carver gear in a display case. Someday I will set them up again. Right now they are retired by Sonic Frontiers and McIntosh.
