Yes, I hear you. I guess nothing is clear cut today. But only Bob and Joesph Audio know who is telling the truth. But the fact it made him lose control of his own company, is pretty sad.

I hope Bob is cooking up something new and cool... Things are getting stale. I'd like to have his attention for a couple of hours to discuss some ideas I have for using some of his unconventional technology in some correspondingly unconventional ways.

He's a very interesting guy, go to some shows and bend his ear, I am sure he'll listen!

The funny thing is he gets into trouble after designing main speakers - AL-III Ribbons, The new Sunfire ribbons ect. I love this guy and will always follow his technology - believe it or not, I do have a original Carver C-9 with rack mounts in my system. I've sold two before and always wind up buying another - I decided to never sell my last one. This constant moving is bad on support however.

Carver's whitepapers on amplifier and speaker design make for interesting reading too. I share your concern for support of his legacy products. I'm currently very satisfied with my amp (I would even consider buying another one just like it for additional channels of amplification), and can make do with my A/V preamp for now, but I know eventually the amp like everything else made by man, will suffer failure, and the A/V preamp is actually already sorely out of date, and will require replacement with something more current, especially given the processing and throughput requirements for the latest version of digital multimedia.

Thumbs up Re: WHAT ABOUR CARVER?

Well everyone,


Let us all hope, those of of us that love Bob, his products, and his creativity, that soon, and some how, he can get stable with a company or partner, and be solid again so the a/v industry can enjoy his products again.
