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.
Dave,

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.”

NOTE: A copy of the McIntosh report from the January 15, 1971 clinic is available as a jpg in this (Rare Phase Linear stuff) thread.



I also created a post "Coffee Can Amp/History of Seattle Area McIntosh clinics 1968-1971"

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?

Thanks!
Ed

Someone recently posted a photo from the front of a Heil Sound catalog on Facebook.
I just happened to notice that there were (9) Phase Linear 700's in the photo.

See attached photo below.

The fellow that owns the catalog says he is in the process of moving and is willing to send it to me for free. If and when it arrives I will scan the entire catalog and post it here.

Can't see the McIntosh, but 18 channels of 700's will run the 12 speaker systems in triamp mode if two cabinets are on one channel. I bet the cabinets were in series!

I received the Heil Sound catalog and scanned the pages.

Unfortunately I don't have the ability to compile them all into (1) pdf
