    That would be my view, but there also plenty of folks, like you, who use floorstanders of some description.

    At the moment but I'm buying some Tannoys as a final speaker. I've tried to find better for the money and I have failed.

    Twin drivers, but in series so still no x-over. Keeps the speed of the 10" paper driver but ups the anti with the 2. They sound better now I fixed the couple of issues when you were here last so a bit improved.

    I'd rather have some big JBLs but there's just no chance.

So if you are an aggressive objectivist then any amp with adequate values of those three items gives you a perfect amplifier and they say all those amps sound the same. But that is NOT what is heard.

    However, hifi is more complex and those measurements are not of much use with modern SS amps. Go on a forum and say you use a valve amplifier and THD, noise and FR are quoted as reasons that they should not sound very good. If you say that the valve amplifer actually sounds better then the accusation is you like distortion and noise.
    Once again, George, your post contains much truth - the last sentence in particular, as I've often been subjected to that rather ignorant assumption!

    Valve amps Ive had were all very good, noise wise. In fact i kinda wish I had a nice valve amp now, as my speakers would be great with one. Not to say the mono's Im using are not adequate, but the quality of top valve designs can produce an intoxicating brew.

    When I mention how I like the sound of Denon DL-103, I tend to get the same response: "oh, so you like distorted sound?" Why is that?
    Don't you just hate it when you cannot detect where the post ends and a signature line begins?
