    New Carver Crimson 2180i integrated ...

    I like it to.

    Years before reentry into 2 channel, I had Carver for a while (early 90’s) - I liked it back then and have respect for Bob Carver still pushing forward.

    EJ has worked with several renowned designers over the year (which is amazing since he is still so young); Bascom King, James Bongiorno, Bob Carver, etc.

    Hello everyone. Here's the update on the new 2180i Integrated amp. Over two years in gestation, we've upgraded everything as we did with the original iteration of the 275 which was to be a 37.5 watt amp called the Crimson 75!

    Now, at 180 times two, into any load, the 2180i mock-up originally looked just like a 275 with knobs! Bob said, "NO!" and we're glad he did, this design is all Bob's.

    We've been delayed by the pandemic and also spent all of 2020 on the power supply alone. I'd estimate 60 more days and $4,000 with a five year warranty including tubes.
