This one's odd.... :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k

I don't think anyone would have done this much work, and be using his name if they hadn't been hired to do something like this.... :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k

That beast is so sexy it made me grab the lotion!

I hope it comes into being, but I think that is just a computer rendering at this point. Has anyone asked Bob? I wonder if this was Emotiva's vision on what to do with Carver...

Nice clean look, but would be nicer without that glass panel.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

I think my next set of amps will use much of the same elements. The glass panel is functional, as it appears to be the power meter The "Carver" name would be etched into the glass un the middle with a silhouette of Bob wearing one of his Tommy Bahama hats...

Granite will still be used on the tube deck. 8)

Looks like it might be an integrated amp?

I am wondering if the red dot advances as the volume is increased? Very cool to say the least.
