Default Looking for infos: Carver M-2060

Google wasn't very helpful...
I didn't find more infos, except 2*60W per channel.
Great! That's already stated on the case of the amplifier!

So, does anybody have more information on this old one?
Some marks in the sink make me believe the production date is 10-23-1989!
Ans it looks somewhat chaotic inside, like they forgot serveral Rs and Cs and just soldered them somewhere in-line...

I'm thinking about spending new caps to this one and send it to someone who will benchmark it for me!

There wasn't a lot more information on them.

That's a likely production date, and would be early in the run for M2060's. Up until late '89 the M2120 was the only car amp from Carver. Here's the ad that was run for a couple of years before that, it touts the M2120 as "The Carver Car Amp." In the Spring 1989 Buyer's Guide, the M2120 was still the only amp under Carver's listing.

There are a few specs mingled in with the propoganda, you have to look for them. Bob Carver was a marketeer.

Also included here is the ad from the introduction of the other Carver offerings, and a price listing from the CSR Buyer's Guide spring 1991 issue.

I believe my friend has an amp like that. He may even have schematics. The carver amps would switch in different rail voltages depending upon the load. I will have more info tomorrow.

@tsmith1315:
Larger images of number 1 and 2 would be great!
And the serial no. is 1603, so I believe it's quite an early one!

@brandes.cm:
If this amp really has a class g PSU a schematic would be great!

Thank you!

This is a schematic for an M240. It uses the same basic supply, if I'm not mistaken.

You'll have to view it at 100% actual size to see any of the details. Sorry about the quality. My scanner wasn't cooperating so I had to photograph it.

I have the schematic for M2120, identical to the M240 Perry posted.

IIRC, M240 was renamed M2120 when the rest of the line was introduced.

Sorry for multiple edits, having trouble with links... Hopefully they work for you, I'm getting varied results when I click on them.
