Wow, that guy is truly a clown. He works for Emotiva, saying that the numbers aren't everything? This is class D PA amplifier level of performance, which is 180 degrees opposite what Emotiva claims about this amplifier. So Amir is the bad one of showing that Emotiva's marketing speak holds no value? If any of these problems are audible doesn't even matter, if I buy an amplifier on the promise of getting high fidelity performance and I don't get it I'm pissed.
I noticed that there is no ground pin on the power cord connector.
Disgusting pathetic stupid shill. Won't be getting my money.Emotiva's KeithL has already commented in two messages:
Funny that he talks about how great their 'soft clipping' circuit is, then in the next breath he explains how the massive distortion from their soft clipping circuit has the potential to destroy tweeters! Yeah guys, great soft clipping circuit you got there.Emotiva has produced some well done YouTube videos and in several they have included an audioprecision analyzer to help visualize what they showing with their products.
Emotiva did respond, but did so on their store forum. Mostly an ad hominem argument about Amir's credibility, but he also mentions Hypex reconstruction filter mysticism, the price of Halcro, and how AHB2 is less powerful.
My response is to avoid Emotiva going forward, and continue recommending Hypex, Purifi, and AHB2 for most people who want performance in the $1k-$6k range.
