You incorrectly think competently designed amplifiers kept below clipping sound different from one another because of marketing, your refusal to accept carefully controlled, precisely level matched, double blind tests published in the largest and oldest audio magazine in the US, Sound and Vision (called Stereo Review prior to 2000), January 1987
, and your failure/inability to conduct properly controlled testing on your own. Me? I have
conducted properly controlled testing and I proved it in this video of a blind test I conducted on an audio expert, an audiophile recording engineer, a self proclaimed "expert listener" (he says it in the video) who picked (and personally wired up) a 2ch. "purist" audio only system (no video, no surround) which, including all the accessories and wiring in today's dollars would be a little over $27,000, using his
gear/speakers of choice and his
music of choice selected by him to prove his claim and win the token bet. He failed, just like you would.
amps were perfect to the ear and introduced no discernible quality loss whatsoever, I guess I'd say both
would be good candidates for me to use, and own, although one is markedly stronger than the other:
I'd go with the stronger one if it cost the same, just in case I someday I need the added power, although currently I don't.
