So now that Bob Carver has joined forces with Emotiva, do you think their reputation here will improve? Sounds like Carver's tech is going to make its way into future Emotiva and Sherbourn products, and Carver will be working with them on designs... and hopefully, Carver's tube amp products will benefit price-wise from Emotiva's manufacturing relationships.
(Disclaimer: I know I'm inviting the usual mockery of the brand. Just thought it was interesting and unexpected news. FLAME-SUIT ON! Heh...)
