This is kind of OT but oh well..

I've been looking at some used Pro audio amps on ebay lately and was just wondering if Carver amps are very good. Right now I'm looking at a Carver PM-175.

Same class as Crown or Crest.  Bid with confidence (assuming the amp is in good shape!)

Is he selling the amp based on its quality or who owned it?

Looks like he is advertising who owned it, but for less than $100 that is one heck of a steal.  Go for it as they regularly go for $225 to $300.  If the bidding goes over $250 drop out as you can find these for $250 any day of the week.  Those amps were designed by Bob Carver and use his magnetic field technology.  A Carver PM-175 was conservatively rated at 175 watts X 2 into 8 ohms, is stable at 4-ohms per channel (500 watts bridged into 8-ohms) at <0.1% THD.  They are very nice amps.

Carver is some good stuff. Owned by Phoenix Gold, you can rest assured it's a quality product. I think this was built before PG bought them tho.

i absolutely love Carver components for the home stereo. my father owns a carver preamp and a two channel 200watt amplifier that are easily 16 years old and they sound better than almost anything i have ever listened to as far as the quality, clarity, and lack of any audible distortion. it even has a soft-clipping circuit that saves your speakers from damage if the amplifier goes into clipping output. pretty nice stuff if you ask me.
*edit* here is an example of what he has, if you care:

The PM-175 was a little too much power for me.. so I went with a PM-100 instead. Carver Amps? -- posted image.  It supposedly does 300 watts continuous at 8 ohms bridged.
