Well, I fully respect his point of view... But as you maybe registered, our views differ in some areas. Measurements are still much more objective for me than trying to rely on the other's opinion or on my flawed ears during short-time meetings.
I don't believe in any sort of synergy... The amp is just neutral, transparent and powerful enough to drive, or not. Headphones are just neutral and technically advanced enough, or not. No mystical powers or voodoo involved. Of course, measurements do not show everything... But I do not spend my hundreds of dollars on flawed products - they are technically great enough, or simply not good enough.
