So then it doesn't meet the THX standard. It just has some THX badge on the front.The performance here seems to cheapen the THX Certification Badging. I thought THX had high performance standards as that is a large amount of distortion permitted. Curious results from a company with fairly high reputation. Thanks Amir and @Highmodulus for sending in the unit.
On edit: interestly this Amp does not show up on the certified Amp/AV separates list. Only 5 Parasound Amps appear Certified by THX at any level.

It is a shame to see these older brands just trading on name. Maybe we need a brand like Topping to get into everything to get these other companies to wake up and care.
