    Hi everyone,

    Can someone summarise the whole thread for me? There's too much for me to catch up on!

    So do we all agree that all/most/some/none amps sound the same?

    Cheers,

    Do you know what the difference is between a Lie
    and a Statistic? Absolutely nothing!
    Why hasn't anyone taken up Richard on his little endeavor?
    Because the "way" he will administer the tests are skewed
    to show his opinion and not a representation of
    factual data IMHO.
    I'll tell you what...
    I will give $10.00 (Ten Dollars) to the person who can sit
    down and tell me there is a difference between a top of the
    line Progressive Scan DVD Player and a bargain basement
    Interlaced APEX DVD Player. Here are the rules:
    You can not use any specific Video Testing or Calibration
    tools.
    You have to watch what I say is admissible to watch..
    You can not use any standardized Video Calibrations Disks
    to do the video testing.
    The people used to do the A/B Tests can not have better
    than 20/80 Vision.
    I am sure you get the gist of what I am saying......

    To summarize this thread:

    WE ALL AGREED TO DISAGREE.

    BOTH CAMPS HELD ON TO THEIR OPINIONS: I didn't see a single instance where someone changed their opinion based on all the arguments and counter arguments that went around.

    WE ARE NO CLOSER TO THE TRUTH THAN WE WERE BEFORE THE THREAD BEGAN

    I hope that puts this thread to a peaceful rest.

    RIP.

    God, and here I thought Lee fell off the earth!
    Brett: the former costs more...I've met your criteria of telling you there's a difference. However, I waive my right to the $10 and direct you to take that money and go to your local pub and have 2 microbrews on me. [​IMG]

    Gee I absolutely love this thread (haven't read it all). It should be specially archived. Please excuse my comments if they've been mentioned before.

    I'm a newbie, so if I'm wrong please educate me. If everything is "equalised" b/w the two competing amps, isn't the signal (voltage - electrical current, isn't that all it is) in the speaker cable going to be exactly the same. Hence you can't possibly hear any difference, can you?
