I have an old Carver M500t power amp that has been a workhorse over the years. I think I bought it sometime in the 80's and have loved it ever since. Recently it started humming in one of the channels which would go away with a little adjustment on the input cable. I figured it had something to do with the two RCA inputs so I had a friend who works in the electronics business come over the house to check for cold solder connections etc. He brought over his pro soldering iron and touched up the "problem area" and checked for other trouble spots. Well the channels are dead now and I am debating whether it's even worth sending out for repair.
I have a Denon 2807 utilizing the carver as the front amplifier. I'm thinking that the 2807 on its own should be more than fine and just putting the Carver to rest. So is it worth the time and money getting the Carver fixed or will the 2807 and its updated power amps be a better choice anyway?
