Hate to send it to another State but I haven't had any luck here in Washington with Carver or Rita since around 1995 :rolleyes:

The magnetic field amps still work......the preamp sort of....and the only thing that plays music is the FM with those annoying channel buttons that have been sticking for a couple decades.

ALS......just sit here......CD player.....just sits here........no TT.....that works......Phase Linear preamp needs repair and as old as it is the caps probably all need to be replaced.

I played the FM loud for a couple minutes but KZOK knew I was there and only played crap I hate so I turned it off and mowed my 3 acre lawn instead :-({|=

GRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrr
Send it to VHoP. Tom will fix it. Reasonable too:-)

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.
