While technically not Carver Corp. speakers, I felt we needed to get these pics of Bob's Phase Linear Andromeda speaker system posted to the forum for archival purposes:

love my Phase Linear Andromedas, they still get playing time here. open and airy, breathtaking and enthralling, especially with a big Crown CTs 2000 amp to wake them up.

Bob was on to something with these, I had a chance to talk with him/thank him for these when I visited Rita's shop a couple of years ago. Give these a listen if you get a chance. =D>
