I had in my mind it was a c4000t but now see there were two different offerings of the c4000. So the C4000t is quite different. I will stick to the c4000 over the c4000t. I currently have two gold face c4000 units. I plan to redo one this winter as per upgrades listed in this forum

    No such thing as a C 4000t

    C 4000 or a 4000t

    That shit will kill ya. The military has already pulled it. The ruby red is an approved method for cleaning connectors and it wont kill ya. Plus you can use it to erase the 4 letter words off the letter you were writing grandma from prison.... winner winner chicken dinner.

    Well, about finished. 2 straight days of jamming to get her recapped/reworked and detailed. I'll start testing tomorrow. After a good scrubbing, I only found a scratch on the top, and a nick at the top of the faceplate. SCORE...

    Nice grab Perry and good looking preamp, now you can lend me the Acurus so I can see if it's really near as good as the Perreaux!

    Oh yeah, this Carver 4000T is as quiet as a church mouse. This sounds bad ass. I pulled a bunch of stuff and rearranged the stereo....

    The Acurus RL-11 (near mint) and the DBX-1bx (mint) is going up on the auction block tonight.
