Well, anyway....it appears Bob Carver and his products going forward are on a different path than before, and Frank apparently isn't part of that path.
That's a good thing in my book.

It sure would be nice to hear this from Bob carver himself instead of always in the 3 person.

Hey, Jim. I can't recall if we have ever met or not but thank you for chiming in. Bob and I have known each other for some time (I am the one who created Carverfest) and I hate to see his name being slung through the mud.
I'll be honest here.
Frank and I have spoken to each other and he is one person that should never have been associated with Bob. I'd go so far as to say that David (omitted - his old college roommate) is also another person that should have never been associated with him. They both took credit for everything Bob did and made him out to be the dunce of the operation, with the both of them being the brains.
It's good to see you taking the helm, as I respect Bob and Peggy both. (She is a sweetheart, or at least has been around me). I wish you all the best of luck moving forward and I hope that your comment you made that you are not here to make friends was just a knee jerk reaction to the negative commentary presented on the aforementioned topic.
Polk and Carver have for a long time been a marriage of good sound. I personally know of Bob's talents when it comes to tube amplification/designs/thoughts and I'll be frank here. The man is a genius when it comes to tube sound.
While Bob has always said that "Any press is good press", I don't think this latest press is as good as it was for the Carver Challenge. I think we both know why. I just hope that Bob has completely separated himself with both Frank M and David, with the exception of possibly a personal level. On a business level, the both of them should have NOTHING to do with him at all. They simply stab him in the back behind the scenes, whether or not Bob knows this or not.
If you would be so kind, please tell Bob I said, "Hello and that I hope all is well with him and Peggy".

I don't know anything about tube amps but this sounds like Chinese / American copycat at it's finest method for making money off an original design.
