In 2009... that would give a bit of overlap.

same REAL full name...what are the odds?

Well...I'm sure he will comment when he sees us discussing...then we will know for sure...LOL!  I'm VERY INTERESTED in what he has been up to with the H/K Cit II and Cit V in monoblock formatting!  I love both of these original units!

I’m not the same Justin. 
That said, been building SET amps and modifying Klipisch speakers for 20 years.  Given that I’m 40, means I’ve been at it for a tinny but of time ;-). On all the forums I’ve always used my full name or company name. I don’t like aviators which sometimes hide identity.
 

If you guys want some more shots of the Cit V let me know. It’s interesting. I’m getting 32watts rms with the 7581a and tube rectification but it’s very very wide bandwidth. I think the bandwidth makes amp sound much more powerful.

Thanks for the clarification, Justin, and for those who really DON'T know much about the ORIGINAL designer of both of these amps (Cit II and Cit V...and many others!)...but love Carver Amps...here is some info FROM Carver, himself:

I did enjoy. Thank you. My Citation II was a tube amp I sold/traded to a good friend of over 40 years, when I was about 20. He still has it. Maybe it's time to clean it up and plug it in!
