Those transistors are long obsolete, most likely NEC B705 and NEC D745. Carver had a service bulletin to replace them with 2SA1302 (also almost obsolete so use 2SA1943) and 2SC3281 (also almost obsolete so use 2SC5200). The new transistors are a different case style so you will have to get creative when mounting the new transistors. I have used these transistors in a M500 without any problems.
