SOURCE: Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers

Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

SOURCE: Carver preamp has no output

This is most likely caused by a failed Audio output amplifier, or perhaps there is a fault with the power supply, and it isn't suppling enough current to make it work correctly, there really is no simple way of determining this without troubleshooting, from the power supply outwards.
if you wish to DIY, then you must obtain a service manual and use that to troubleshoot the problems, usually it is replacement of parts that's required, if they can even be obtained.. Or get it looked at by a competent service center, always ask for a "Quote' for any repair before proceeding, this way at least you can make an informed decision as to what to do, repair or replace.

Carver TFM 35 amp what is the best way to hook it to a Marantz AV8003 pre app


No. You should use the line(or preamp output) to the Carver input. The only way you could use the tape output is if the Carver has input volume controls.

How to hook up a Marantz AZ8003 pre amp to a carver TFM 35 a.m.


Please see my last few comments on the same issue. If you can't find it, please let me know. BTW, Marantz does not show the AZ8003 to be a valid model.

You don't. Unless you open it up and put in a switch. These lights are part of the look.

Carver CT-28v Tuner preamp - Has a hum/buzz (soundls like a ground loop) that is heard as soon as the unit is turned on. Does not increase with volume, just stays the same and is continuous. Changing...


Reverse the polarity of the AC plug and try it. Is there a headphone jack on the preamp? Try headphones with the preamp standalone without the amp attached.

Are you sure the preamp is the problem? I assume you also have an amp or you wouldn't hear anything. Power up the amp with nothing but speakers attached. Hum??? It's in the amp. No Hum? Attach just the preamp with no external components. Hum now? It's the CT-28. Turn it off an exercise every switch and knob throughout its range numerous times. Try again. Still humming? Manipulate source selections, Tape Monitor, everything.

Carver C11 preamp problem


I found out through the Carver Audio forums that metal shavings inside the case are an issue with this unit. So I used an achohol based spray and cleaned the switchs and the circuit board, (there was a fair amount of shavings found). It has been running for 14 hours with no problems.

Metz 45CL-4 not firing consistently... Hi, Have a problem with a Metz 45CL-4 flashgun. I may have damaged the circuit by rapid charging from an external NiMh pack whilst trying to form the main capacitor....


Hi Guys!
I have had the same problem on CT-1 s and CT-5s.
In both cases the flash cable (called PC synch cable) was to blame. If flash fires correctly with the test button on the handle, then cleaning the cable contacts with contact cleaner spray seems to be the best first step.
Regards,
Gerard
