While the SC 05 hits almost identical power ratings compared to the SC 07, it does so driving 7 channels vs the SC 07's 5 channels (138 W). Also, while the SC 05s power goes up when testing 7 channels vs 5 channels, the SC 07s power rating goes down when comparing 2 channels vs 5 channels. It'd be interesting to see what they found at 5 channels driven between both.
At 5 channels driven, the SC 05 gives up about 20 Watts to the SC 07. But gains those 20 watts back with 7 channels driven.
Also be interesting to see what S&V found at different THD levels, too.
I still believe the ICE power amps of the SC 05 and the SC 07 are the same.
Interesting anomalies, nonetheless!
I still don't quite understand this, it makes no sense to me
