My story: I am a middle aged total rookie when it comes to audio and am still using a JVC system I bought as a teenager. I recently lucked into a pair of mint condition Carver Silver amazing speakers, and just purchased a Carver tfm-45 off eBay that I haven't received yet. Next step is to find a Carver CT-17 with remote in great shape so I can finally hear these speakers sing. If anybody has some insight into this system I'd be grateful to hear it. For the time being I'll just use a Technics five disc CD changer and my old JVC turntable as input devices, although I would like to be able to plug in my iPhone on occasion.
