Carver TFM25 Power Amps - 2 for sale

Post by indyaudio » Tue Dec 27, 2011 7:03 pm

I have a very nice pair of TFM25 amps for sale. Have been in my system for the last few years, work as they should, every time. No issues ever. Lights and meters work. Very nice cosmetics overall. These amps have easily driven my speakers over the last couple of years. They came up a little short bi amping my ALiiis and I've purchased a Sunfire for this chore. Still in use as you can see in my rack, but making room for the new Sunfire purchases.

I will sell them individually or as a pair. Thought I'd offer on the site here before going to Ebay. I'd like $275 each or $500 for the pair plus actual cost of UPS shipping.

You know the specs, let me know if any questions via PM, thanks.

Thanks Gary, I did, it was a "fixie" I believe. Found a good DIY on the web for it. Ordered the shelves from a vendor on Ebay, rest from Lowes. A little drilling and some edge polishing and it was all done.

Actually, it's called a "Flexy": viewtopic.php?f=37&t=15161&p=160638&hil ... ck#p160638

You are absolutely right Gary, Flexie, not Fixie - got some of the road bike lingo mixed in the audio thread (Fixie is a single geared bike). My Flexie ran about $200 total to build.

I just bought another one from Audio Advisors, Salamander with black rods and 3 black shelves, on sale for $149 delivered. Too cheap at that price to pass up.

I will say that after having them both flank my main rack, I prefer my homemade one over the Salamander as the clear shelves are nicer for seeing your gear.

Thanks, no worries, just was wondering if I should somehow be cleaning up after myself as I have a few for sale and want ads and all have been fulfilled!

But I miss them.....the pair with the classic meters are cool. Will find another metered TFM down the road with more juice.
