Carver Crimson 275 - Has anyone heard one?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I keep looking at the Carver Crimson 275 though find very little on the net about these amps.  

 

First off, do they sound good?  Any comparisons, tube gear or SS?  Do they really run cool for a tube amp?

 

I'd like to check this amp out though I am trying to avoid a room heater (which most tube amps are).  I would like tube sound as long as they have drive.

 

Thanks for your opinions.

Guess nobody has heard one.  About equivalent on the net.

I heard one, for about 12 minutes at Axpona. I thought they were a bargain compared to the other over the top esoteric gear I listened to while I was there. I am not a tube guy. I have nothing to compare them to. Just always liked Bob Carver and what he has done for the audio world.

 

I thought they sounded great. Sort of hard to compare when they were running on 7 foot tall ribbon array speakers. I never touched them. No idea on the temps.

Thank you, much appreciated.  Seems quite hard to get any real feedback and info.

Exact Ditto for me too.
