Carver 275 watts Vacuum tube amplifier


  • Optimized for the KT120. 75 Watts Per Channel into typical 4/8 ohms 1Kz with no more than 1% Total Harmonic Distortion.
    Distortion decreases at lower levels

  • Tubes

    • 12AX7 x 1

    • 12AT7 x 2

    •  KT120 x 4. (6550, KT88 can be used). 

  • Output Transformer

    •  Carver designed interleaved windings, low leakage, wide bandwidth. P/N EM0946 produced by EDCOR

  • DC Restorer Circuit

    • Responds by tracking bias and preventing bias current sag under dynamic loads.

  • Multi-function meter

    • Bias setting (in conjunction with rear panel control)

    • Tube Tester (tests at actual voltage and current conditions)

    • VU Meter

  • Back EMF room sensing feedback  circuit

    • Provides for improved soundstage, being less effected by less than perfect room shapes and sizes.​
