The answer to that is in distortion measurements. But I did see in his R3 review he said:
"The distortion graphs is still work in progress as I continue to fight the Klippel software to generate proper SPL measures."
It's US$2k per pair for the R3.
And his R3 review concluded with "objective measurements are superb enough to give a thumbs up to KEF R3 and hence the choice of panther."
I'm pretty sure the KEF engineers involved with the R3 are very happy reading his review...
My CPU (i9-9900K) is actually an important part of my music playback.
I use HQPlayer (on the fly convolution for digital room correction plus upsampling to DSD) and some of their newer DSD modulators need running speed (max boost) close to 5GHz for 2 cores. I don't overclock.
I haven't seen...
“We focused our testing on the most consumer-facing options, searching for the headphones and earbuds that deliver the most value, so you won't find thousand-dollar options designed for the pickiest of audiophiles.”
These these are all bluetooth headphones, which is the billion dollar market...
This is stating the obvious... that's the whole point of me showing Matrix measurement and me writing: "Matrix Audio seem to have TOSlink input jitter rejection figured out"
i.e. (if it wasn't obvious already) the Matrix team have implemented jitter rejection well ;-)
