The Carver AV-806x Multi-Channel Amplifier was a six channel amp for home theater that won considerable accolades from the audio press. The only problem with six-channel amps - and there are several of these on the market - is that you only need five channels. The sixth was designed in anticipation of using it with an unpowered subwoofer. Probably 99% of the subs out there now are self-powered, so the sixth channel is not needed by most of us. Enter the AV-705x, which is Carver's latest design for home theater amplification.
The 705 uses totally modular circuitry, with each amplifier being a PCB that is inserted front to back, like accessory boards in computers [click here to see photo of inside of amp]. The front of the PCB has ten pins that connect to the power supply, and the back has the input RCA jack and one pair of three-way speaker binding posts attached. The jack and binding posts protrude from the back of the amplifier [click here to see photo of back], along with a small potentiometer post. The potentiometer controls the volume of each amplifier section. For THX use, the pots are turned all the way clockwise. We would like to see five-way binding posts that will accept heavy spade lugs. The posts on the 705 will accept pins, bare wire, and banana plugs. Each channel is marked on the back in BIG numbers, 1 - 5. Someone up there in Lynnwood has eyesight about like mine!
The class A input voltage amplification stage has a servo circuit preceding it which eliminates DC from entering the circuit. This is followed by a two stage driver, which interfaces with the output stage (four bipolar devices per channel) where current is made available to the output (speakers). A small amount of negative feedback has been employed for the purpose of optimizing every amp module for consistency rather than to remove significant amounts of distortion. What makes the circuit interesting is that there are no point-to-point wires in the amplifier stages. Everything is on one PCB for minimal signal path, for easy repair, and low cost to the consumer [click here to see photo of amplifier module PCB]. This is a change from the AV-806x which was a less refined first pass at a modular approach. The 705x uses new advanced topology and is all discrete, whereas the 806x was a chip driver based design with narrow open loop bandwidth, output inductors, and less safe operating area.
