Although the english is horrible am I correct in interpreting this statement to mean that you believe in the idea that solid state amplifiers and receivers need to "burn in" before they achieve their true sonic signature?
If so, then I believe that over the last few months you have stated as fact:
-There are easily heard differences between DACS
-There are easily heard differences between amplifiers and receivers due to DACS
-Seperates are always better than receivers as they use better parts
-Onkyo is far superior to Marantz, Yamaha, Denon, and other receivers,so much so that those other brands aren't even competitive
-solid state electronics need to burn in
And you haven't offerd a single shred of evidence or data in any post that a single thing you state is true. You can't defend any of the above comments other than to say you are 60 year's old, know a lot about audio/video, and have helped hundreds if not thousands with their system. You cite no studies, tests, experiments, or at least none you have shared with anybody to support your claims and yet:
Your signature states that you are providing "clarity in darkness?"
You must be slipping, Doug, as the DW I know would be all over this faster than cats on mice. I guess we have a newer, kinder, Doug!
