Gain is very different from power. You can have a 10mW amplifier set with 40db or 60db gain. Yet it's less powerful.
I'm going back and forth i noticed some differences but it's not volume matched. AE5 sounds more visceral, thumpy and closer. E30+789 combo sounds more open, distant, less fatiguing, deeper soundstage. I'm getting the feeling of better resolution in the mids and highs but bass is lacking a bit.
