Wondering what your thoughts on or experience with this tuner/preamp might be? How's it sound?

It would fit well where the Exposure 2010S sets in the rack and has two tape loops instead of the Exposure's single loop. Plus the tuner, though radio around here is crap these days.

Bob, you might try and find the PSC-50 preamp tuner. It is really tiny, but well built and sounds "perfect". All Carver's designs are perfect. I bet the PSC-50 is not his design.

The CT-7 has a mid-tone control, that could be useful. Alas, no moving coil phono input/circuit. I would have to beg off.
That doesn't worry me - I've got a Phonomena II phono preamp that does a nice job with mc cartridges. And I'll take a look at the PSC-50 if such can be found, Tom. Thanks for that.

I've rebuilt several out of the CT Series (6, 24...), I stay away from them now. Sound great, a bitch to work on. The display board sux.....
