    I just bought a Carver HR-895 receiver with a 30 day warranty at a small audio shop in my city for only $85. This system works great, all displays still work and everything. I was just wondering, I am looking for this receiver for its stereo system (i.e. cds, ipod) capabilities so what sort of floor speakers should I look for so I can have some wall shaking bass but clearity of music at the same time? I currently have two Cerwin Vega D-7 floor speakers hooked up, using 16 guage wire, and the speakers say their impedance is 4-8 ohms. I am not running the risk of burning these speakers up in the mean time am I?

    Eric. I also use Cerwin vega’s with my Carver TFM-25. In pairs i’ve run…(models D-9 and DX-9, and model VS-120) The VS-120’s are about the same as your D-7’s. All I can say is for the money the Cerwins should function just fine. Also, you may not find much else (unless you spend hundreds more) that deliver the bass response as the Cerwins. The only issue i’ve come across with most Cerwins are their surrounds. Fortunately, replacement surrounds are available via the net, and they are not at all that complex to replace on your own. The most difficult and time consuming is removing the old material from the speaker cone and aluminum frame. Then making sure you use enough glue while properly lining up the new surround the first time around. Although I also own a pair of Carver AL-3 plus’s, and a pair of Carver Silver edition speakers, if I had to choose another option it would be the Cerwins. Believe me, i’ve ruined many a high end speaker trying to get the same kick butt sound as those Vega’s. …. Just my 2cents…………Michael

    Try Paradigm speakers. I have 2 titans, 2 micros, center and subwoofer. I paid $1,300.00 and that was low end price for Paradigms.

    E-mail me $$$ price and I will seriously consider it if I can afford it?

    I recently bought a Carver HR-895 receiver, but it doesn’t seem to be working. I’m wondering if its just me or if it is really non-functional.

  6. Michael says:

    I have a CD Aiwa 5 disk CD changer that I know is working hooked up in the CD output and two old Scott speakers hooked into System 1. The Carver is set on CD. The screen reads, surround mode Dolby; center mode phantom; signal level (nothing); visual LD; sound 0:00 wide; input level ( nothing); 1 speakers; auto. Does that sound right?

    Let me know your thoughts. Keep it in simple please.

    Michael, I know this is a year later but I just recently purchased this receiver. I had the same problem so I did a little research and found out that you need to run jumpers on the output section ei…the front speaker outputs, surround and center. You can just use rca cables, mine came with a couple of the carver jumpers but I used rca cables for the other outputs. The receiver works great. It sounds much better than my $2000.00 pioneer elite receiver. I am thrilled, paid $76.00 for it.
