carver 2000 Receiver 1984 : opinion?

Anyone have an opinion an a 1984 Carver 2000 receiver, am thinking about buying this used unit ( $500 cdn ), but was wondering if this is worth it considering age, not sure on the specs or reputation of this... Let me know
I must admit that I know absolutely nothing about this receiver, but given the level of performance available in today’s products for the price, and given the age of the receiver, and recognizing the lack of support from a manufacturer for this product, I would look elsewhere. The quality of sound reproduction has improved in the last 17 years, and I am sure you would be able to find something in your price range that would fit the bill. Best of luck.

My opinion, for what it's worth.
The Carver is an Awesome receiver. my experience with 80's carver is that they are generally very reliable and kick butt! Other greats are Tandberg 2075 Luxman 1120 series
