Bottom Line:   
CarverH9AV Sonic Hologram Generator. This audio video sound enhancement device replaces the older Carver C-9 Hologram Generator. The product connects thru the tape monitor circuits or the preamp in/out jacks. These hologram generators provide a wide sound stage with accurate sonic clues. When utilizing the normal stereo mode on your system it is excellant. Try connecting the H-9Av thru an additional spare receiver,integrated amp speakers combo for a real sound treat! You must treat the room accoustically and position the speakers VERY accurately. (use a steel tape or tailors tape depending on your application. The owners manual should be read several times before positioning. Final tweaking can be done later. Speaker toe-in is critical. Not too close to parrallel walls. If toe-in is out by more than 1 inch difference on either speaker it will affect the end result. Distance from back wall must be the same. Use the service manual as a good tool.

Bottom Line:   
I'm running this with a Carver M1.0t amp and a pair of Polk Audio SDA2a's. The whole system uses Monster cable interconnects. I recently bought a Sony DVD player that runs CD spinning duty. The whole system sounds great and I love it, but I really need to replace the pre-amp; not having a remote or any A/V capability is really a drag.
