    Malcolm Chisholm, who engineered many of Chess's great blues and R&B giants from the mid-1950s through the 1970s--Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers, Otis Rush, Lowell Fulson, Etta James, Ahmad Jamal, Sonny Stitt, Ramsey Lewis. Shown here in the 1960s. That "MRL" belt buckle might be from Magnetic Reference Lab the company that made all the calibration tapes used in studios. Or, it could be his initials "MRC"?

    Nice gear but isn't that couch perhaps a tad bit too distant from the sound source ?

    Ant the green cable seen between the two amps ....... it looks like it runs BEHIND the cover plate ?

    Looking at on my Android so my perception might be altered .....🤯

    In any event, I'm willing to accept delivery if this is a karma.....IN with 512 ! 👍🏁

    Very nice, I might make the same observation about that distance to the couch though. Room seems awfully large with maybe too much space behind the couch.

    Could just be the optical thing though as sometimes pics produce. Where's Bud ? Tell him to go give a listen and report back.

    “The Listening Triangle.” What am I missing?

    Since I got into this hobby, many said the LR should form a 60 degree triangle w/ the listening position (LP) The image above appears that the LR distance is about half that of the same to the LP. I realize YMMV as acoustics, room shape, and the speakers themselves are variables.

    Side note: I think the SDA speakers require much more space to the left of the left channel and the same for the right channel for correct imaging. Carver’s electronic spin on the above, just the opposite.

    I look forward to anyone’s input.

    Thanks. Tony

    American Hero! and all around BAD ****
    Patrick Gavin Tadina is pictured here in an undated photo wearing North Vietnamese Army fatigues and carrying an AK-47. A 30-year Army veteran who was the longest continuously serving Ranger in Vietnam and one of the war's most decorated enlisted soldier.
    Patrick Gavin Tadina served in Vietnam for over five years straight between 1965 and 1970, leading long range reconnaissance patrols deep into enemy territory -- often dressed in black pajamas and sandals, and carrying an AK-47.
    A native of Hawaii, Tadina earned two Silver Stars, 10 Bronze Stars -- seven with valor -- three Vietnamese Crosses of Gallantry, four Army Commendation Medals, including two for valor, and three Purple Hearts.
    His small stature and dark complexion helped him pass for a Viet Cong soldier on patrols deep into the Central Highlands, during which he preferred to be in the point position. His citations describe him walking to within feet of enemies he knew to be lying in wait for him and leading a pursuing enemy patrol into an ambush set by his team.
    In Vietnam he served with the 173rd Airborne Brigade Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol, 74th Infantry Detachment Long Range Patrol and Company N (Ranger), 75th Infantry.
    Tadina joined the Army in 1962 and served in the Dominican Republic before going to Southeast Asia. He also served with the 82nd Airborne Division in Grenada during Operation Urgent Fury in 1983 and with the 1st Infantry Division during Operation Desert Storm in 1991.
    A 1995 inductee into the Ranger Hall of Fame, he served with "extreme valor," never losing a man during his years as a team leader in Vietnam, a hall of fame profile at Fort Benning said.
    Some 200 men had served under him without "so much as a scratch," said a newspaper clipping his daughter shared, published while Tadina was serving at Landing Zone English in Vietnam's Binh Dinh province, likely in 1969.
    Tadina himself was shot three times and his only brother was also killed in combat in Vietnam, Stars and Stripes later reported.
    The last time he was shot was during an enemy ambush in which he earned his second Silver Star, and the wounds nearly forced him to be evacuated from the country, the LZ English story said.
    As the point man, Tadina was already inside the kill zone when he sensed something was wrong, but the enemy did not fire on him, apparently confused about who he was, the article stated. After spotting the enemy, Tadina opened fire and called out the ambush to his teammates before falling to the ground and being shot in both calves.
    He refused medical aid and continued to command until the enemy retreated, stated another clipping, quoting from his Silver Star citation.
    "When you're out there in the deep stuff, there's an unspoken understanding," he told Tate in 1985. "It's caring about troops."
    After retiring from the Army in 1992, he continued working security jobs until 2013, Poeschl said, including stints in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
