Agreed and I think it's great that you not only question things but try to get some real world proof for yourself. It's like the AVS version of MythBusters.

Don't forget the return(s). The collective supply volume has to go back through the return, which can also be a source of noise. If you're going to run a filter, that will further reduce the...

These are still listed in the 1st post. I skimmed through the thread, but didn't see why they got the boot? The 705, 8320, and SC8 all street for about the same price.
