What is everybodys take on doing a blind amplifier comparison?
I have too many amps but cannot decide which one to keep. Im torn between a NAD C368 and a Peachtree Audio Nova300. I thought it may be fun to do a little blind test with some amps. Same source. Same DAC, Same speakers. Anyone have experience doing this? Im not sure how to organize it.
Im thinking we could have those two amps plus my Denon 4520 and maybe another one if somebody wanted to bring something? A tube amp would be cool to throw in there.
Great idea. But we have to make certain the source is the same and that the amps are EXACTLY gain matched.

Yep. Source would be the same and the amps would all be level matched with a spl meter beforehand for sure.That part is easy since we will use the same speakers. I would make a playlist in Roon to keep the source the same. And then it would go through the same DAC. We would just have to move the DAC output and speaker leads from amp to amp. Wont be an instant ABC comparison. More like listen to the same couple tracks on each amp then move to the next. Not perfect but should still be interesting.
