The worst case AVRs develop about the same amount of power as a comparable 2 channel integrated amp. As AVRs get heavier and more expensive, they approach having how ever many channels of amplification as they have, each with the power capability of one of the two channels of the 2 channel integrated amp.
As usual, the above statement simplistically misstates past and future reality.What will in fact be claimed is that there will be a difference but it won't be audible. Not that complex or difficult eh, but some people don't seem to be able to say it or write that with useful amounts of reliability.It is as always, the responsibility of the proponents of the allegedly improved DACs to prove their point, which historically they have never been willing or able to do. One...
+1it pretty well answers the issues raised in this post: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1507920/bi-amping-b-w-cm10/480#post_24605144The single slope circuit that is most commonly used is analyzed thoroughly. Straight up current limiters are a degenerate case of the single slope circuit.
Not high end prices, for sure.Commodity 12 or 14 or even thinner wire suffices depending on length.Mainstream pricing suffices.They always audibly color the sound - that's vinyl!Really good analog tape comes closer, but still is not sonically transparent past one generation, no matter what.Speakers include subwoofers and you can spend a lot on subwoofers and not enter the realm of strongly diminishing returns.
That was just the beginning of sorrows. If memory serves it didn't have the best FR with resistive loads, and it also provided a relatively high source impedance. As always any kind of good FR was contingent on exact electrical centering of the bass and treble controls which were non defeatable, and whose electrical center rarely coincided with mechanical center.Here is the relevant info:Welcome to audio in the 1950s. Note that audio gear with todays fully enclosed...
The current outlandish prices for OLED are not due to better engineering. It is all about the usual "Early adopter's tax" which has applied to just about any new technology that has come along. Right now production runs are small, yields are low, there is a lot of rework and handwork, etc., etc. All of those things will presumably be solved in time. In way the prices are due to unrefined engineering, not better engineering.
So what? The same argument applies. Of course not all cables sound the same. Last time I looked Radio Shack and others still sell 24 gauge cable as speaker wire.Which systems? The question is 100% indiscriminate. I believe that there are some ultra cheap rack systems that are pretty bad.Take a guess, Amir! ;-)Not the issue. He didn't exclude anything.Maybe there are other people here with the same problem - absolute and total indiscriminate thinking. That doesn't mean it...
Any, except possibly those, like certain Sony models that make a strong point about supporting only speakers rated at 8 ohms or higher.
Actually a cheap crystal controlled watch is probably not as stable as Warren Marrison's 1928 quartz crystal based clock. For one thing a watch operates in an environment whose temperature is fluctuating.Here's an experiment that I have done. Compare the accuracy of your watch on your arm with the same watch stting out on a piece of furniture. It will probably be more accurate on your arm because that is the environment that it was designed for, but that's still not a...
What kind of power? Test bench power or listening room power?Incorrect. AVRs are rated at 100-150 wpc, with a pure steady sine wave, some just 2 channels, some all channels.That's a pretty good representation of what to expect from the lightest weight AVR - 100-150 wpc 2 channels driven, resistive load, test signal = pure steady sine wave.The heavier and more expensive AVRs can perform that well with more channels driven. Some do well with all channels driven.Yes there...
