At least, now they are ready to accept it without too much criticism of unusual solutions.
Based on the Carver and other interviews , such solutions have been with us for sometime now. Anyway go ahead and finish , please no 25 watt deal , i hope it 's real world power , like 100watts +

Yes, he shows up from time to time. AV8R. Interesting and creative guy, I greatly enjoyed the several days I spent with him.

Just wondering if it is credible or a fluffed infomercial.
The latter.

He's prepared .....

Bob Carver Cherry 180 Tube Monoblock Amplifier One of the most significant tube amplifiers of the past 60 years! Review By Dick Olsher


Another : Carver VTA180M Tube Monoblocks – Reviews | TONEAudio MAGAZINE
From the article: "I agree with Tim to the extent that high damping factors are not a panacea for bass control. It's the source impedance/speaker impedance interaction that worries me as it can result in significant adulteration of the speaker's frequency response."

Thank goodness.

I don't think so. Otherwise he would implement our ideas without help of other people.

Not that I'm aware. Too bad, he combines the performance art of fashion audio with a really innovative approach to product concept. I'd love to meet him and have a few drinks one of these days.

He complains in the Olsher review that he types slowly.

Yes, an endearing character whom I've not met either, although I did communicate with his wife years ago when wanting to license a patent for a client. I'm most impressed with the names he coins (remember the "autocorrelator" in one of the Phase Linear preamps?).
