The only reason the distortion was discovered was through Amir’s testing, not audibly (i.e. with evidence). So if a claim is made *without evidence*, it should be treated with caution.If anyone would ever claimed that such a thing as the material of the clamp connectors with the binding posts matters without evidence the least that would happened to him would be tar and feathers here.
But experience on the one hand (@pma ) and state of the art instrumentation and skilled operator on the other (@amirm ) found such a case along with the solution.
Nothing will surprise me from now on.
Case is fine. Manufacturer has stated many times he works on bringing value which he has successfully done. There are always tradeoffs but he has been very clear about the case and keeping costs down and value up.The case & font choice looks really cheap for something that's $1,699 tho…
@amirm is there value in grouping amplifiers by gain to make them more of an apples to apples comparison? In this case Buckeye can perform superbly in 15db and 26db gain modes, but some of the top measuring amps have 11db gain while others that perform much worse have 26db or more gain. It seems like people would need to understand what gain they need from their amp and the implications of higher or lower gain amps when sorting through the data to compare products. I would definitely like to better under the gain structure needed and what it means for my system if a choose an 11db amp vs a 26db amp.
ok, thank you for sharing your thoughts, but what's relevant is what is coming out of the amps. What happens in your particular system and then between your ears and your brain really has nothing to do with anyone else. That's why we focus on measurements, so we can compare apples to apples.Yes, play on YouTube then my system deliver it to my ears.
Mucho appreciated. Please make it a standard measurement until we see that no amps miss on this... Thanks again. Purifi did well.Request was made to show power with reactive loads as opposed to just resistive as is the norm in my reviews (and industry). Using my new PowerCube loadbox, I can do that:
No hurt feelings at all! We’re just incredulous that you try any ranking of the amplifiers by listening to that YouTube clip.Sorry if my conclusion hurting anyone. I only want to be honest and I don’t listen to the person on the video such as: “icepower is more harsh… bla.. bla..bla…”
No, I can’t be fooled by that.
