The Carver 900 is – in terms of power – the smallest of the Carver Receivers. However no other product currently offered by any other manufacturer delivers the same amount of power, features, specifications or out-and-out performance found in the Carver Receiver 900.
The Carver Receiver 900 sets standards which are unapproachable by any other comparably priced receiver. Because even with their ‘smallest’ receiver, Carver has created a component which is truly powerful, musical and accurate.
No other receiver in this class has a clean 100 watts per channel FTC. Moreover, no other receiver can deliver a stunning 180 watts during the dynamic peaks that Digital demands.
And no other non-Carver receiver can resolve noisy FM into a clean, clear signal comparable to disc sources.
How many stations do you normally listen to? The Carver Receiver 900 can remember eight AM and eight FM stations. Just touch a button to switch between your favorites. Is the station noisy to weak? Engage the Carver Asymmetrical Charge-Coupled Detector and resolve interference prone and distant stations into rich, full stereo. Suddenly your listening possibilities are vastly increased. No other brand of receiver has the technology to combine quarts synthesized digital FM with added circuitry to solve the real world interference problems that are present across the landscape. Naturally the 900 includes memory preset, auto-seek and manual scan as well as an accurate LED signal strength meter and stereo indicator.
At 100 watts per channel RMS, the Carver 900 provides serious power for today’s new acoustic suspension speaker designs. Power to resolve records and tape with new impact and clarity. Power to ignite your imagination with a digital disc! Either way, Carver’s ‘smallest’ receiver will deliver pyrotechnic dynamics and freedom from clipping distortion that will render you favorite music with new clarity.
And of course the Carver 900 Receiver has The Right Features. You’ve eschewed separates because you like the combination of controls and features found on an all-in-one receiver, right? You’ll soon discover that the Carver 900 delivers them all. Generous, human-engineered volume control with a silky feel you won’t find on anything but larger Carver receivers. Defeatable center detented bass and treble control. Large easy-to-use program source controls for CD’s, FM, AM, Phone and VIDEO sound inputs. Tape dubbing for 1:2 and 2:1 sources. Precision balance, loudness control and mono button. Dual speaker outputs, Switched and unswitched AC receptacles. Even a separate headphone circuit and output jack. The Carver 900 gives you everything you need to out distance any comparably prices receiver. Moreover, the 900 once-and-for-all settles the argument as to which modestly priced receiver gives you the most features, power and noise free FM reception.

    Hi, I have a 900 reciever,it no longer turns on,(just minor light pulse after I press the on button. Would this TC9147BP do the trick?

  2. Martin Beaulieu says:

    An electronics technician worked on it,now it turns on, but is wide open(no regulator control). Doesn’t look like there are any replaceable parts on that little board, may have to be replaced. Any ideas ?
    Thank You for any input, Marty

  3. Martin Beaulieu says:

    Also: It will not switch from one mode to another, tuner to CD to Phono, etc. Thanks for any help ………

    Looking for the balance potentiometer for this unit, anyone got any ideas? Board # BL-608B, or the pot # s EWJ-KTA337BC5.
