Re: carver c-1000

The C-1000 was the precursor to the Sunfire Ultimate Receiver. There are NO parts available for them anywhere, so I advise against it unless your getting it for a steal & it's fully functional. They run HOT, too.

The TG-5 is a processor only, no amp. It does not process HDMI, either, if that's what you're looking for. What exactly do you need? Perhaps we can steer you in sound (pun intended) direction!
