Carver M500T - Weak Left Channel
« on: December 16, 2021, 10:10:52 AM »
Hey there,

I have a nice Carver M-500T, but the one channel is very weak.   Does anyone know someone who repairs gear?  I guess Galaxie?


I've had this for a while and was hoping to keep it alive.

 Any advice is much appreciated, thanks.

Vince is the only person I'm aware of, but I have no idea how much work he takes on nowadays. I've heard he only does receiver/amps and turntables now. There have to be more techs out there, but I never hear about them. Seems no one wants to do that kind of work anymore, another 10 yrs and we're going to be paying a king's ransom.

There are two main Carver web sites, I'd go there are ask where to send it. Those people really know their Carver gear!
a bunch of nice sounding stuff. Nice that I'm finally able to actually listen to file music for the first time...

Thanks for the suggestions

Yah, its crazy how tough it is to find a tech today.  You'd think if you hustled, one could make a living between hifi and instrument amplifiers?
