OCTOBER MEETING--BOB CARVER FROM BOB CARVER CORP PRESENTS THE NEW AMAZING LINESOURCE LOUDSPEAKER SYSTEM WITH BOB CARVER RAVEN 350 TUBE AMPS We are delighted to have one of the true legends of audio, Bob Carver, demonstrate his new Amazing Line Source (ALS) Loudspeaker system together with the Raven 350 tube monoblock amplifiers.
Bob, as a physicist and engineer, has made numerous contributions to audio since introducing the first consumer high power amplifier in 1972, the Phase Linear 400. These include sonic holography, amplifier acoustic transfer function, and the Sunfire large-surround, huge-stroke, stacked magnet design to name just a few.

The new Amazing Line Source Loudspeaker consists of two slim 7'8" line source towers with a subwoofer, all incorporating the latest culmination of Bob's design requiring far more detail than can be covered here. The review below is quite positive, to say the least. For more information go to: http://www.bobcarvercorp.com/als http://www.theabsolutesound.com/article ... er-system/

Jordon Gerber, partner and chief of production and as a degreed physicist, is Bob's research associate as well as an accomplished musician and speaker designer. He's a veteran of the pro-sound industry including Crate and Mackey.
