Described as "a personal integrated amplifier," the new Carver model is designed for listening styles and tastes evolved from 1980 when the first Carver amplifier hit the market. The new amplifier takes its predecessors philosophy of size and price and updates it. It generates superb sound quality from an even smaller form-factor, and does it for a price that is 1/7th the amount of Carver's first amplifier, when adjusted for inflation.

The Carver Microblok's small footprint takes up as much space on a desk as a typical calculator or phone. In fact, the desktop is a primary listening application behind the amplifier's design. Today, most listeners spend more time with their PC's than all their other electronics combined, using them for music, video and internet radio. Usually those PC's play audio through plastic multimedia speakers. Microblok lets anyone listen to their PC through a pair of good bookshelf or mini-monitor speakers, and transform desktop listening into a high-end audio experience. The unit's separate volume, bass, treble and balance controls enable the user to adjust the sound for any source, speaker, or environment.
