No, I was referring to an earlier McIntoch Clinic held at Seattle Stereo about 1967, NOT 1971, which is a later visit to Seattle Stereo. In fact, John Ledbetter, owner of NW Sound, was employed at Seattle Stereo, on 1st Avenue, Seattle, during that time and he remembers me and Bob lugging that huge amp on three chassis into the clinic. At the time, i was employed in sales at Seattle Radio Supply. This was well before Bob began building Phase Linear amps.
It's good to have you aboard. There is probably no one else besides you who knows as much about Bob Carver and the early history of Phase Linear.
When I made the comment:
" The history may be off a little. The McIntosh clinic was January 15, 1971 at Seattle Stereo Center".
My comment was made in response to your posting on Audiocircle.com (http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=139506.0)
".....In January, 1970, Bob brought a complete amp to the McIntosh Clinic, where it tested at a bit over 350 watts RMS/channel, with very low distortion across the audio frequency band.”
In December 2015, I performed a on-line search of the Seattle Times newspapers for any McIntosh clinics in 1967 and couldn't find any. That's not to say there weren't any it's just that I couldn't locate any.
By the way, if my memory serves me correct, you told me an interesting story about listening to the tube amp on your birthday in November 1967. How much earlier did Bob complete the tube amp for you? Any idea what month the two of you would have brought it to Seattle Stereo?
