Try a Counterpoint. Good tube dynamics--probably similar to your Carver except that the bass will probably not be "giant". Most built in the 80'2 were rack-mountable, I believe. SA-3 & 3.1 should go for around $300-400 while the newer SA-5 series will fetch a higher premium. Counterpoint is out of business, although the former owner and chief designer, Mike Elliot, still services all Counterpoint gear. So, don't be too concerned about service issues. Mr. Elliot also offers comprehensive upgrades for reasonable prices. Good gear for little $!
