    For desktop audio, is there any real benefit to going beyond mini-D amplifiers?

    I'm talking about bookshelf and smaller speakers that are at most 3-4 feet away from your listening position. 60-70dB is typical, maybe +10-20 if you want to go crazy. If I understand the general math correctly, we're talking about just a few watts of power. So, is there any realistic difference...

    What is a vertical sound stage?

    I hear in reviews about amps that some have a large vertical sound stage. What is a vertical sound stage exactly? I feel like I know a horizontal sound stage, the separation of instruments and vocals. But I am not sure what exactly is meant by a 'large vertical sound stage'
