    I would not say vulgarisation. If people not like to pay attention, there fault. There is enough objective information on ASR so you can learn how to handel SINAD. Imo its not on Amir or us to explain to each single person. You know the old saying? RTFM. ;) Or we should do a text?ASR for dummys...

    UWAYKEY: Can an $18 Amplifier Be Any Good?

    For me looks like the 4ohm power is determined by the 3amp powersupply not the amp.
