2 Channel

Up for sale is a nice Carver CT-Seven Sonic Holography Audiophile Reference Preamp/Tuner in excellent condition. If you are looking at this preamp, you probably already know its leanage and its sonic attributes. The CT-7 is a wonderful vintage preamp that will be at home in any 2 channel system. The CT-Seven is truly a wonderful, non-fatiguing preamp.

The CT-7 is a result of extensive research and development by Bob Carver. All stages are operated using wide band width, high current, low impedance, circuits in a unique configuration designed to insure lowest distortion, regardless of volume demands as well as 0 dynamic loading distortion. The ultra low noise phono preamp is one of the very best you will hear. The total absence of background noise in the phono preamp is immediately striking if you hear any noise you can rest assure that it is from your LP playback system and not from the CT-7. In addition the CT-Seven has an excellent tuner section that is noted as being one of Carver's best. 

The inner detail and clarity of the CT-Seven phono section is stunning. Try any heavily scored well recorded LP and you will be able to penetrate the densest portion of the score with ease. It simply delivers an accurate account of what is on the record clarity, warmth, ambience and whatever else exists in the program material. The transformer design is second to none featuring a high current isolated power transformer for best regulation under heavy demands. This eliminates stray hum fields for lowest noise (especially in the phono stage). This provides undiminished voltage to circuits for best performance.

This is one of the finest preamp's in its time for under $1000. The CT-7 is still a valid player in the current world of high end audio. The CT-7 is a slim design preamp with basic controls. It is designed with the audiophile in mind; the lack of unnecessary circuitry aids its ability to stay extremely clean.

The CT-7 was built upon the successful design of years and years of being a pioneer in the audio industry, the CT-7 offers a dramatic step up in sound quality over any previous preamp. 

If you are in the market for a very nice, well respected high end preamp I am sure this CT-7 will fit nicely into your system.

As evidenced in the supersize photos this unit is in very nice condition. The faceplate is perfect; you will only find a couple of tick like marks to the top edge. The top panel has a handful of faint marks that will go unnoticed once placing this preamp into your system.  I am confident you will be very pleased with the condition of this preamp once it arrives. 

This unit has been thoroughly bench and scope tested. All buttons, lights, switches work as intended with no glitches, static or surprises. This preamp has been thoroughly serviced and cleaned. This preamp is functioning as Carver intended and to factory specifications. Comes from the original owner who kept it in a smoke/pet free environment. Sorry, no manual or remote is included; however, it is available on the net.

As with all my items, this preamp is guaranteed to arrive in working condition. Buyer to pay actual shipping cost, no handling fees. Good luck!
