Ain't that cool? I was researching something else actually and ran across that neat tidbit. I never knew he was from the Motor City! Fellow Michigander :) it's about time he is recognized as one of the, if not all time designers of audio gear.

When people stop by my house, if they didn't know who he was.. They did by the time they left!

I'm surprised I got the "scoop" on this!!

That is really cool and a nice read! It's funny he mentions the I-Mag amplifier, I was just asking Bill Flannery about it but he's never heard of it, wonder if it will ever be produced? :-k

IIRC James and some of his family along with AngeloD have heard the I-Mag. From what I 'remember' Bob says it is his best sounding SS amp and has the fewest parts. I should have asked him to bring one when I spoke with him yesterday.
