Picked up a carver M-1.5 this last Saturday. Red led on the bottom left comes on at 60v AC. Showing 0.11 A on the ammeter and 5 v DC on both outputs all at 60v AC input from the Veriac. It only shows 12 v DC across the rails. I have installed the 40/80 Volt rail capacitor kit and have checked the filters and the rectifier. Any clues, thinks I should check ? Thanks.

These amps take some work. If you don't do the rebuild, duck and cover when turning them on. The Service Manual leads you through the troubleshooting of the system. Nothing easy with these or the M1.0t's

Think I agree. Bought a bill of goods on this one. So what, I found a lot of really good deals before too. Sometimes you win.......Sometimes not. On this one I loose either way. Dude told me it worked and my greed allowed me to believe him. I have a PL 700, a McCormack DNA 1 a B&K EX 442 a B&K 202+ a Parasound HCA 1206 a PS Audio 200C and that is off the top of my head. I needed another amp like a hole in the head. Greed, I am greedy for amplifiers....Shit. Thanks yall. Roccus, If I decide to sell it I will shoot you a PM.
