ok. this is my chance. while there's very little choice of posts to which to respond, maybe people will be bored enough to throw a few opinions my way (they didn't before the crash...) i have heard quite often, lately, that amplifiers that use global negative feedback sound worse than amplifiers that don't use it. does anyone have experience with this? i am wondering about, for instance, bryston amplifers versus BAT or Theta amps (neither of the latter 2 use global feedback). anyone want to take a kick at this can?
