I would expect any differences to be audible with good transducers only for sure. Resolving is not a technical term though, could the "resolving-ness" of the speakers in your case have been the higher power requirements of B&W and Revel?From my personal journey , the audible differences can only be audible with highly resolving speakers and with "listening' (not just measuring knowns metric,
I had compare amplifiers that I could not hear the difference when they are driving my Logan bookshelf speakers but can clearly hear the difference when driving highly resolving speakers like B&W 802D3 or Revel Ultima.
Proper comparison setup is very important, after doing multiple comparisons of amps and DACs myself, I don't accept any subjective impressions as valid unless the setup is right at least.
