In setting out to design the A-760x Carver’s engineering team drew on lessons learned in the design and building of the acclaimed Lightstar Reference amplifier, a development hailed recently in “Fi” magazine as “evidence that Carver Corporation has made a strong commitment to first-rate build quality as well as to engineering innovation.” The A-760x uses Carver’s newest power amplification technology “Magnified Current”. This technology enables the A-760x to provide either twice the continuous voltage or twice the continuous current needed by the loudspeaker load at any given time. With more than enough current and voltage-peak or continuous- the Lightstar-inspired A-760x is the ultimate consumer amplifier on the market today.
  • Certified by Lucasfilm, Ltd. for use in home THX audio systems
  • Magnified Current technology for increasing voltage and current capability
  • Total Direct Coupling for high damping factor at all frequencies
  • Each channel protected by: individual fusing, excess temperature sense, DC fault sense, power-on delay, shorted load sense.
  • Minimal signal path design, with on card I/O connectors eliminating internal interconnect cables
  • Gold Plated RCA Jack Connections
  • Dual analog lighted meters with range selection switch
  • Meter light On/Off switch
  • Individual calibrated level trim controls for each channel
  • Removable handles for 17″ cabinet space (with trim caps)
  • Designed and built by Carver Corporation in Lynnwood, WA USA

  2. Scott Lee says:

    I have been driving a pair of JBL L7’s with this amp (with a Carver CT-23 preamp) for about 8 years or so, and it has performed its’ “wire with gain” mission quite well at volume levels and source material from FM classical station background music to heavy metal “party on the patio” levels without any maintenance or sonic issues. Outstanding!

    PS I run it with volume pots wide open, system volume controlled with preamp volume knob

  4. Joe Murphy Jr says:

    I have a Carver A-760x with <20 hours on it (ie, perfect condition and no, the 20 is not a typo) if anyone is interested. You make the offer.

  5. Kyle says:

    Joe, do you still have the A-760x? I am interested.

  6. Pat says:

    I have an A760-X in mint condition for sale if anyone is interested in the mpls,mn. area?

  7. Joe says:

    I have an A760-X in excellent condition for sale if anyone is interested. In the Seattle. Last month it was seriously lab tested and a few pieces replaced (original quality or better) and the binding posts (originals were terrible!) replaced with high quality.

    Thanks, Joe
