Carver in the movies....

OK we all know Ferris had some Carver separates....Has anyone seen any other movies where there has been some Carver pieces ? Also, what kind of system did the dad in "Risky Business" have to turn down ? You know "My house, my rules Joel".........

VERY good eye...
I havent watched that movie in 10 years.
I thought it was Carver at 1st... but something was different from the C-1 preamp, and the tuner was different, there has never been a Carver tuner with a small readout in the canter.
So I thought....Phase Linear maybe

Still might be a C-1.. hard to tell...

Here's another thread on the subject from another forum.

In Jurassic Park 2 when Ian Malcolm in the movie is in the double motorhome/lab when he is on the radio calling for the boat. Looks like a couple of TFM-25's in the rack.

Also in that picture of Jurassis Park there is one of the newer oval Carver receivers just to the left of the bottom amp. I couldn't get a picture of it if anyone else can that would be cool.

Re: Carver in the movies....

While technically it's not a movie, I'm pretty sure
I caught a glimps of a C-4000 preamp on Wife Swap
the other night.

Ok. Fess up. Which one of you was it?
