Although I could not make an A/B comparison I simply unplugged the speakers from one receiver and plugged them into the other. No big deal, and there was absolutely no sound difference whatsoever. If there were any differences, they were not audible to me or anyone else. Maybe not perfectly scientific but enough to know that the difference between the two was not enough to matter to anyone.
Incidentally, the speakers used were Speakerlab SL7's which are a 12 inch four way speaker system consisting of one 12 inch sub woofer, 1 10 in mid bass, one 6 inch midrange and a 1 inch tweeter. The speakers weigh in at 85 pounds each and are considered to be "bright".
Incidentally, before you call somebody a liar, why don't you make you own tests.
