Yes. The AHB2 has been reviewed with proper measurements already, so your testing it will produce more new info about ASR's testing setup than about the amp. Has any independent reviewer measured the HPA4 yet?

Ninjaed by a mile. I will try to refresh next time... :rolleyes:

DSpeaker Antimode X4. This is a high end DAC, pre amplifier, dsp room eq and subwoofer/main speaker crossover. It is expensive, but the room eq builds on some highly effective units that they designed earlier (I am a great fan of their 8033 dsp room eq for subwoofers). No audiopholery here, but hard science and engineering to address what matters most: speaker - room integration. And it is easy to use.

And another one: the new Sonos AMP. 2x125 watt in a highly functional and slick unit that is perfect for a modern streaming based life style system. Provided it measures well it should satisfy the neds of all but a very small group of life style users. It has an input for tv sound and an output for a subwoofer, looks great, and has auto on/off so you can even hide it out of sight. Add some medium size high end speakers like the Harbeth M30.1 and you are all set for very good sound in an unobtrusive and ultra convenient system.

The master sinad is getting too cluttered and difficult to read, i propose you divide it in four, "dacs", "headphone amps", "dac/headphone amps" and "other", of course the "other" could expand in the future depending on what get tested.
And maybe just maybe color code the graph by price range, something like bellow x, between x and y, between y and z and more than z, 4 colors should do the trick.
And in the future, as the number of products tested gets too big, remove the ones not on the market anymore, and remove the ones that are simply not good enough or not recommended for whatever reason.
Just my two cents.

Yeh, it is a growing problem, literally! FYI you can click on the graph and it will expand to a larger size for clarity.

One option is to have the graph vertically. That way size is not a limitation.

@amirm, thank you for all your hard work! I am interested in more details of the measurement process. I know that I ask a lot, but it would be great if you can make a video one of your sessions.
