find some independent tester with nice equipment and test procedures like new measurements of stereophile and than we can talk whether it's better than weiss 202 (I laughed so hard ... you made my day man)
if it measures so good than I can buy it in a heartbeat even paying the price twice
I wonder why yulong doesn't want to send just 1 unit for test to the stereophile or someone independent :D ...
It's not that simple. Think about how many review sites/magazines actually do competent measurements these days. The list is rather small.
Getting a review in Stereophile isn't just a matter of sending over a unit..... they only have so much space for reviews, and can pretty much choose any product on the market to cover. Do you think a small company like Yulong, more popular in China than here, is really on their radar? Or makes good sense for them to cover, from a marketing perspective?
I don't see why automatic distrust is the default stance. We know for a fact that Yulong has the right gear (Prism dScope III for example) so is it that massive of a leap to assume they know how to use it? Can you imagine a company posting faked measurements on a regular basis and just hoping that nobody ever calls their bluff?
