    • No confusion for me.  What is the threshold of audibility of the types of DAC performance measures that he presents?    When you realize that the reviewer never really talks about those subjects (and is really the Achilles heel of all his reviews), then you can begin to look at the data itself and decide for yourself if it's "good enough".   I've stated this observation on the forum before.  His data is good, but he never says "good enough" and moves on to more important issues.  This is a problem.   I have no problems with the performance of the DACs in the XMC-1 being much more than "good enough".  Can I hear any differences between the current AVP that I own and the one it replaced (in terms of DAC performance)?  I'm not sure.  And that's "good enough" by definition.  If I were to start asking questions about other parts of someone's setup, particularly the room acoustics and loudspeaker performance in-room, I think that these measures will show much, much greater audibility and performance thresholds that are too audible.    I find that it is the failing of hi-fi enthusiasts without much experience to not ask these type of questions and to pour money into electronics, etc. without first asking the question, "can I hear that difference?"  I can't tell you in how many instances where I see all their money spent on electronics and a pittance on loudspeakers and room acoustics, then the same individual tries to shift the subject away from the obvious "elephant in the room" by using excuses.   Chris
    • I'll practice pooping on the sidewalk. 
    • Because it is allowed and they want to hit different target audiences.  The knowing and unknowing look at the numbers differently so you have to present what your audience will key on.  It is like saying your subwoofer takes 1000watts.  Everyone wants to say how big, bad, and loud their subwoofer is.  If the subwoofer only goes to 35hz and is rated at 82db efficiency, you'd be better with a higher efficiency sub with a lower wattage level in many instances though it doesn't sound as good as a burly 1000 watter.   For AVRs, how many channels are driven at the same time to come up with that power output usually defines how good the power supply behind the system is (depending on if Class D or not).  Is it 6ohm or 8ohm rating at 1khz vs full spectrum 20hz-20khz at 8ohm.  Are the amps 4 ohm stable.   My advice is wade through as much information as you can find then choose as best you can.  Outside of specs being grossly over rated (distortion, noise, power), the quality of the sound and amount of current (usually not listed but is significant with 4ohm compatibility) is the biggest thing.  Specs are specs thus in many instances are misleading.   IMHO
    • Like the misprinted penny or the upside down plane on the stamp, those Forte's might be worth something!
    • I guess you need to figure out why everyone tried to come to the US legally or illegally.  Then you would have your answer.  It is personal for those who care.
    • Hi,   In my opinion, original parts or mod parts, that is discussed and it is a personal choice.   For me the 2 are good 😉
    • I have a pair of K77M square magnet tweeters for sale if you are interested.  Garage sale section.
