It took me awhile to re-type this article I had to take photos of the embedded pictures and save the images into the file. Worth a read though.

If anyone has an earlier (1970-1971) article on the PL700, I would like the link and be willing to retype it just like this one.

Carver is making the case here for high power amps. At the time, 60 watt amps were all anybody needed! He is demonstrating that peak clipping does happen, and worse, clipping protection circuits can make nasty sounds. I believe there exists a more widely available Carver tome about "Why 350 watts is good for your speakers."
