When you put statements like "LOL" talking about contributions to this thread (even if SUBJECTIVE test results), it's insulting. I will not apologize, and I find your replies extremely condescending.
Really? The LOL was in response to a post by AustinJerry, not to one by you. Nobody has insulted you in this thread. Your unwillingness to apologize for an unjustified accusations speaks volumes.
We can go back and forth trying to compare lab test results from comparable units, but in the end I trust my ears. For the product I'm trying to integrate if the difference is negligible it's gone from my system, if the quality improves it stays.
My posts shouldn't be a set in stone recommendation for ANYONE out there, is is solely my subjective observation trying to create a rough test methodology in house without involving additional test equipment. Could I drag this amplifier to my lab to test it's power quality? Sure. Do I need to? No. Because when I listen to music I'm going to use my ears and nothing else . .
So if anyone is thinking of going to an external amplifier for increased clarity, go bring one in your house, listen and make your own decisions. It took so long for me to even consider one because posts from you, and others on the AVR-4311ci thread mentioning that it would make no difference.
I urge other thread members to not be scared to try another product, just don't be surprised if it doesn't deliver night and day differences across all volume levels. The AVR-4520ci is a damn good product for the price.
