Pic of Bob from July 07

Found this posted on the Klipsch forums:

I keep in touch with Bob Carver's college roommate and he recently sent me this picture he took of Bob in July 07. This is the house where in 1967 Bob and Dave created their first superamp. Enjoy!

Is that his current address? If so, I've got a letter to type! \:D/

Thanks Mr. Rabbit.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Sorry, the address has an error, its "NE", not "NW", which is in Lake City, a suburb in north Seattle.
Looks about the same as when Bob and I lived there 1965-1967. Great memories of listening, creating. Bob has closely replicated the system of those heady days, including the cabinets and University 315C speakers.

Re: Pic of Bob from July 07

So YOU'RE the Dave from that information! Good to see things coming full circle. Feel free to fill in the blanks around here (there are tons of them!). It's great to have someone from the past with first-hand knowledge!

THANK YOU!
