    Hi Tom!

    Thanks for your comments and great to meet you! I'm very happy to hear that I come across as centered and no nonsense, since that is my intent.

    My opinion - which is for the most part backed up by all the controlled scientific research that has been done - is that electronics are for the most part neutral. I just got done writing quite a bit about this very subject in the M2 thread:

    http://www.avsforum.com/forum/89-spe...l#post47715769

    To answer your question directly, I am not surprised you heard no difference between the Emotiva, the Marantz, and the MacIntosh. IMO, most of the differences people claim to hear are the result of expectation and confirmation bias. In blind listening tests, differences tend to disappear. So for me, assuming that the amp in question is well designed and competently executed, the differences are going to be in raw power output and how well they handle the load of the speaker.

    John,
    I've been following your posts on the Revel thread. You seem to have a centered, no nonsense approach to sound! I am curious of your opinion, (off the record!) with the Revel 208's is there any sound quality difference going from the Emotiva to a higher priced amp? (I am satisfied with my current set up and am not looking to spend more money.)

    The reason I ask, when I purchased the speakers 3 years ago, the dealer auditioned them on an expensive Macintosh amp. Although it's not true A/B testing, I can't really tell the difference between the Macintosh, my Marantz receiver, and the Emotiva. I've always wondered if spending thousands of dollars on amps is just chasing hugely diminishing returns?!

    BTW, I work as an editor (and sometimes director) on the TV show Blue Bloods on CBS.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Hi wse!

    Based in Colorado - I'm in Colorado Springs and my business partner is in Parker. We do have a national footprint, though, as we end up doing systems around the country.

    Thanks for reaching out!

    Hi Robert!

    Thanks so much for reaching out! Unfortunately, I am restricted from selling the Anthem AVM60 outside of my region (southern Colorado). In fact, this applies to all Paradigm and Anthem products.

    I did sell one to an AVS member who had me design his system (speakers and all), so did "bend the rules" a bit since I had worked with him on every aspect of his system design. However, even this technically broke the rules so I am not willing to do it again.

    I do appreciate the referral, though, and the fact that you reached out to me If you like, I can try and help find an Anthem dealer nearby that is willing to work with you! If you want to send me your location I can reach out to Anthem and find out who is an excellent dealer in your area.

    Thanks!

    John

    Hello John,

    A fellow member sent me your way for the purchase of an AVM60.

    I have no dealers in my area and was hoping to save a few dollars.

    Thank You

    Robert
