    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"?

    I believe it's at Sound United's HQ in Carlsbad, CA. here's another photo and a link. This information is on the Polk Enthusiast Facebook group.

    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
