    Double Blind tests *did* show amplifiers to sound different

    Exactly... Waiting for someone to actually do more than claim it.

    The sound quality of DSD?

    Because someone somewhere told them they were supposed to.

    Physical media vrs steaming

    Beyond having a high enough speed, what else is going to impact sound quality? Are different connections going to sound different, assuming they are all fast enough? When you say 'streaming protocol,' are you talking about lossy compression or something else? I've never heard a...

    Why not review some Hegel amps?

    It is a great feature of this site. No advertising, No cherry-picked samples (from member sent items), pure honesty from measured results. It is interesting to see the varied reactions from the manufacturers who have a product reviewed that might have shown some embarrassing design issues...

    Having a Feeling of Shame Gives Rise to Courage--SMSL M500 V2

    New JBL 4349 Speakers

    I agree. I think a pair of 708P's for $2k is an amazing value, and I'll need something actually worth upgrading to. No issues or complaints from the nine 7 series speakers (6-705p's, 3-708p's) I have. Based on their performance, I'd have no problem trying another JBL. 12" woofer. Yes please.

    New JBL 4349 Speakers

    I wonder if these may go on the periodic Harmon/JBL (half price B-Stock) sale... Might be a worthy upgrade from the 708P's. I've been very happy with them, but something less FUGLY might not be terrible.
