Carver Research Lightstar Reference 2.0 for sale

Carver Research Lightstar Reference 2.0 Amplifier for sale - $1600 (Central Ohio)

For your consideration is a pristine, signed(by Bob Carver) Carver Research Lightstar Reference 2.0 amplifier. If you are looking at this ad you know the reputation of the Lightstar line. This particular amplifier is load-invarient at 300 watts per channel(measured at Bob's shop 375wpc @ 1k hz) Bob was in awe of it's condition when he signed it. It is beautiful and was acquired from one of his lab assistants at Sunfire. I am the second owner and it remains a beautiful piece of Carver gear. I do not have the original packing for this amplifier, while I do have packing for another amplifier just like it.

Below are some links to pictures featuring this great piece of HiFi gear.
