I am considering both pro and consumer grade Carver amps. I'm looking though at the specs, and on the pro series the THD seems pretty high. Now, there's lots of other figures I don't understand so perhaps I'm not reading these numbers in context.
20Hz-20kHz @ < 0.08% THDhttp://thecarversite.com/manuals/man...r%20manual.pdf
20Hz-20kHz @ < 0.5% THDhttp://thecarversite.com/manuals/man...r%20manual.pdf
Should I be concerned about the THD on the PM-300, or would I not notice? My listening habbits are 85% movies, 15% music, both at or below reference levels.
My AVR is an Onkyo 809, mains are Definitive BP-20. I recently demo'd a friend's Carver m-1.5t and noticed a significant increase in clarity and control at all SPL's.
Alternatively, I can get an Emotiva XPA-3 for a good price.
Please guide me!
