Is there any particular reason you want a Carver?

Little chance of anyone using a pro logic receiver these days Jerry ; lossy decoding has been supplanted by lossless and object decoding . If 2ch stereo is important options  with h/t bypass are used by some ; otherwise the emi/rf in an enclosed space like an avr with many other functions requires good isolation ;shielding and an apropro power supply..

. Thats why a separate box with ht bypass can be much more efficacious as it does 1 thing well rather than multiple things at once :)

There are better avr's out there though that have above average 2ch though ; number of channels and room size would help suggestions ..

so that's out to date receiver, isn't it?

Afraid so Jerry ; if you listen to blurays and other hi rez sources like sacd ; dvd a and maybe hi rez downloads you need things like lossless decoding and dacs that wont downrez to 24/96 . Many newer avr's have higher rez dacs like 24/192 or higher end analogue stages that do them justice :)

Have a look around the classifieds here ; many bargains like this Marantz if on a budget ?

yeah a lot of Japanese manufacturers are more interesting, I'm just interested in the brand because it's quite rare in the market ...
for tech AV Receivers, I prefer Denon or Onkyo for music

Yeah Bob Carver was famous for his current driven amp technology ; so any sunfire power amps you may find are quite efficient for class a/b . A clever designer that wanted to emulate " tube sound" without the harmonic distortion through clever impedance matching :) Had some clever dsp modes as well in the upper market stuff with his decorellation circuitry

He also was involved with Phase Linear ; heavy duty stuff
