Carver TFM-15cb Power amp and Carver CT-17 preamp, available separately or as a pair.
Price for the preamp and the power amp each is $395.00 firm.

The modestly priced TFM-15cb shares many sonic characteristics with Carver's most expensive designs, and are often coupled with Carver's CT-17 tuner/preamps in critical quality, single room music systems. It feature a bridged mono mode for optimum performance in monophonic home-wide distributed systems, or for driving sub-woofers in home theater systems. The TFM-15cb follows the same distinctive design scheme as Carver's high power amplifiers, including analog meters with range selection switch. Power output of 100 watts per channel (8 ohms) makes it suitable for driving many popular main listening room speakers, and it certainly has generous power reserves for driving smaller secondary room systems or rear channel surround sound speakers. The amp will push relatively efficient main room speakers to surprisingly high listening levels with clean, tight response. Of course, it also serves as the ideal add-on amplifier for multi-room systems and rear channel surround speakers.

High Headroom/Low Feedback Stereo Power Amplifier. High power and compact size, at a very affordable price. The TFM-15cb will provide the warm, natural sound that is the hallmark of Carver in an attractive no-nonsense design. It will drive most loudspeakers to room-filling volume levels. 100 watts per channel into 8 ohms. 140 watts per channel into 4 ohms. 200 watts per channel into 2 ohms. 300 watts bridged mono. Dual analog meters with range selection. A/B speaker switching. Individual left/right level controls. Special circuitry to protect both the amplifier and loudspeakers from overload. Additional line level output for "daisy-chaining" in multi-amp or room-to-room applications.
