Architect's and Engineer's Specifications
The preamplifier shall be capable of stereo program feed to two zones with independent source selection and volume control for each zone. Audio source selection, power on/off, volume and muting shall be operable from both the front panel and from a supplied wireless infra-red remote control transmitter. The preamplifier shall include the following stereo inputs: 7 line level (includes 2 tape monitor inputs) and one moving magnet phono input. Included stereo outputs shall be: 1 main zone preamplifier output, 1 remote zone preamplifier output ant 2 fixed level tape recording outputs.
The preamplifier shall feature independent volume control for each zone. The volume control shall be motorized control capable of being operated manually from the front panel, or by remote control. The remote zone volume control shall be a solid state electronic attenuator type capable of being operated from front panel up/down pushbuttons, or by remote control.
The main zone preamplifier section shall incorporate Carver Sonic Holography special enhancement circuitry.
Additional front panel controls for the main zone shall include: balance control, bass and treble control, loudness compensation on/off, muting on/off and hologram on/off. A headphone jack shall be included for monitoring program output to the main zone.
Frequency response shall be 20Hz 20kHz within 0.5dB. Signal to noise ratio for line level sources shall be 95dB below 1 volt RMS output (A Weighted). For Phono source, signal to noise ratio shall be 80dB A Weighted relative to 5 mV RMS input level. Total harmonic distortion shall be 0.008% or less at 2V RMS output. Output impedance at preamps outputs and tape outputs shall be approximately 680? and recommended shall be 2500 ? or greater.
Dimensions of the unit shall be: height 1.75" (45 mm), width 19" (480 mm), depth of chassis 12.75" (324 mm), and overall depth 14.75" (375 mm). The unit shall be capable of being mounted in a stand
