    Carver Crimson 275 vs Jolida JD1000RC Comparison

    Anyone know anything about the Carver Crimson 275? Iím consider trading up a Jolida JD10000RC with a new pre. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    I believe the Carver I heard was the 350. If the 275 is same technology, it's impressive. Not only did the 350 sound very good, it ran so cool the rep could grab the output tubes with his hand. You should know if the 275 & 350 are same series by the warranty on the tubes, one of the longest in the industry due to keeping them cool.

    The 350 just sounded like a good amp, it didn't strike meas obviously tube or solid state. To me that's a high mark for an amp. Adjectives like, effortless, transparent, good frequency response without anything bringing attention to any one area.

    We bought ourselves a Carver Crimson 275 as our Christmas present this year. Clear clean sound with our Tekton Design Pendragons. The Carver is a no brainer--5 year warranty, you don't have to set the bias, and you don't have to worry about having to have this set of tubes as opposed to that set of tubes because it is so tolerant. It's about as plug as play as a receiver. I can't put up my e-mail yet because the website won't let me so reply to this post and I'll answer any questions you might have.

    Welcome
    I am also curios about this amp. I have Magnepan 1.7i loudspeakers which are kinda hungry. So I was wondering how well this amp will power my Maggies. I currently am powering them with an ancient Parasound HCA2200, but I love what my Aric Audio tube preamp has done for my system.

    BTW: Yes this is the same series as the 350. The 350 being almost 5 times as powerful at 350wpc and sporting a total of 12 KT120's to the 275's 4. The 350's are mono blocks costing $9500/pair whereas the 275 is a stereo amp at $2750.
