Carver 1.5 MT Magnetic Field Amps

915 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  wezar
I own two Carver M 1.5 T Magnetic field amps and was wondering if anyone in the forum was aware of the quality of them. I would like to incorporate them into my new home theater which will be compossed of Lexicon DC2 or MC1. I believe these two channel apms were rated at 500 watts per channel.

any help would be appreciated

I believe these are the amps that Bob Carver challenged stereophile writers

on a listening test. They could compare their sound to any amplifier, they

chose a $10,000 a pair monoblock tube amp(don't know which one)to compare

to. The writers could not detect a difference between the amps.

FYI. I use a B&K ST1400 series II to drive my centers
