Ok I think I did something crazy. I purchased on Audiogon a Carver Lightstar Reference amp. without ever listening to it. I am a big fan of Bob Carver and have many of his amps. I have (2) A-500X, (2) A-220, and a TFM-25 and love the sound that comes out every one. So when I saw the Lightstar something in my head snapped and I had to have it. So last night when I could not get the Lightstar amp out of my head I purchased it. Having never listened to one and finding no detailed reviews of the amp on the WEB I started got worried. Presently I have a ML HT system. It is made of (4) Scenario and a Cinema. The Scenarios are powered by the Carver A-500X and the Cinema by a Carver A-220 in bridged mono mode. Some day I would like to build a dedicated 2-channel system for just listening to music. Get a pair of large MLs like the CLS. And use the Lightstar amp to drive it. My question is has any one in this group had any experience with this amp. If so how would you describe its sound? Any information would be a big help.
