I can't prove anything but will play around with measuring but an extended frequency response @rcohen has mentioned with the BMS cd having a response out to 24khz. In theory it makes sense as an amp board with a 20khz filter could mess with the upper end, again theory but why not get an amp that has extended response? Some things getting into the deep hole are DC coupling and non phase shifting in bass frequencies. cheaper amps can have minor phase shifting. Another no one really understands is switching frequency and filtering feedback. It gets really technical and things I'm still learning. Nothing I'm talking about here is 'Audiofoolery' but actual electrical engineering science. Most amps simply filter feedback round and round until it is generally un audible and measures well in this day of oogling over specs.
It's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff, whether it's romantic adjectives or electrical engineering.
I'm pretty sure I can't do it. My track purchasing track record is too spotty to claim otherwise, but it's fun to try.

When I read you getting excited about the Hypex tech talk, it reminds me of my past mistakes, but I'm sure the Cherries will work out awesome for you.

With this A51 that I like so much with the 212s, it makes me wonder if I'm responding so well to the presence of distortion or the lack of distortion. After all, real life doesn't give me chills like listening to it. <shrug>

Right behind the left and right mains facing towards the outer walls.

Not aesthetically pleasing. But that's where they measured the best. Will be doing a complete calibration this weekend and finally get a chance to sit and listen to them in real world material.
