Sorry, Bill, I didn't mean to offend. I've just seen mentions of Bob's amps on ebay, but haven't seen a direct link to purchase from him outside of ebay. Please point me in the right direction!

Just think "Elvis".

There are many and there is Bob Carver.

A little research on Goggle will be all you need to understand this site.

Have you tried the POLK forum or many others. They are good and interesting.

Over time you might understand Carver and return.
Actually some of the top posters here don't play Carver.

Maybe some others will jump in and explain.
