I've got a pair of RS2 Infinitys made in the 80's that ohm out to less than 2 ohms and this amp has no problem and sounds better than the rest of the amps that died tryin. Runs warm at most have had 3 years still strong.

Carver has put out one of the BEST sounding, most NATURAL sounding amplifier I've EVER heard, aside from a 25,000 dollar tube counterpart.

TFM-45 is that way to go for both power and value.

I'd highly recommend this amp!

Great amp. Very good sound compared to newer Carver A500x. I am using the TFM-45 on my mains and (2) A500x's on the subs. You can pick them up used for around $500. I have not found an am this good for that price. . .

For It's age it will out perform a lot of newer amps that cost twice as much! To bad they don't make them anymore.
