Your M1.0t amps, Michael, were designed to emulate Conrad Johnson's Premiere Five tube amps"
It's funny you say that because I have a pair of Carver 4.0 amps and those are the ones that say vacuum tube transfer function on them.I take it the 1.0t also have that function?
I had the CJ Premier five EL34 amps in my home for 3 months back in the mid 80s because my friends were CJ dealers and Tom let me use them while they moved into their new and larger store. I thought they were wonderful at the time because I was using them on my Magnapan Typmpani lVa speakers.

Indeed they do, Michael. That "t" designation stands for Transfer Function Modified. 130 Receiver's amp was based on TFM-24/25 amps (one amp had analog meters, the other LED's). Silver Seven amps were Carver's top dawgs, so M-4.0t should be a delight. Might be fun A/B testing your Carvers, & wondering how actual Premiere 5/Silver Seven would compare. BTW, 600 allows for switch-selectable bridged mono mode operation. 73s para Sactown
