Bottom Line:   
The 895 I pbrobably the best ive heard w/ my passive jbls 10in 3way front & 8in 2way back
and 8in sub. my 60's dynaco kit st-70 in 1969 was a great inroad in audio at least for my price range with my ar 2ax's but of course doesn't hold a candle to the 895 but wish IHad the ars back.

Bottom Line:   


i have had my hr895 since new in 1994 it has awesome sound and have enjoyed listening to it for years. i do have a problem with it now ,that the left channel has a intermittent cracking sound.most times it will do it and some times it doesn't,the volume plays no part (soft or loud) i have had the cover off and put air to the components,not having changed anything. i am open to suggestions or to someplace that fixes carver units

Bottom Line:   
I have found the Carver HR-895 to be a great sounding Amp. It reproduces music and Movie soundtracks very nicly. I have found it to get very HOT and thus needs to be placed outside of the rack in order to keep it cool. I find that the buttons as many others have stated on here to be placed in a strange order but once you are used to it I don't mind. I also like the channel seperation on this amp it is very sharp and crisp. I run Mission 765 fronts, Mission 762 rears, yamaha centre, and ADS sub. I will be intrested in selling this amp as I am looking at upgrading to 5.1 you can contact me at tony_c_vdb@hotmail.com for more info.

Bottom Line:   
I find the front panel to be confusing for the most part.It does however,produce quite a bit of clarity to my Boston's(rears) and mtx(15"-3 ways).I recently put into use a pair of braun 3 ways as backups.The unit has no trouble handling these babies
