Missed this post. With speakers, @amirm does measure speaker's resolution in terms of frequency response, distortion, just to name a few metrics. It tells a lot about the performance of the speakers. Do you really think @amirm would measure only internals of the active speakers (in terms of SINAD) to make meaningful conclusions about speakers performance? It just doesn't make sense and you're taking things out of context. SINAD in active speakers amps is only part of the big picture, but of course important.
Ok, enough for now, hopefully we will put this debate to an definitive end...
No, I am not recommending that Amir measure internal electronics of active speakers.
@JJB70 post #118 sums up my stance on this nicely. There is a disconnect between worrying about SINAD for discrete electronics and completely ignoring it for internal electronics of an active speaker.
I am not taking anything out of context, if anything I am asking to take things in context. If an active speaker can sound good with such poor measuring internal electronics it says that good electronic measurements are not as important as other aspects (speakers, room, DSP, etc). I am in 100% agreement that you need to look at the whole picture.
