I feel my b22 is the finest amp I have ever built, he felt it was just ok.

Gotta love musicians. biggrin.gif

 

There's a reason all guitar amplifiers are so colored. wink.gif

I thought the reason (with respect to guitar amps) was that most (all?) people have an innate preference for even order harmonic distortion...so when you kick a guitar amp into overdrive, you want to make sure that is what you are generating - rather than odd order distortion that is going to make your listeners head for the door.

I forgot about this thread, was just annoyed about the more stupid comments but probably should not have bothered posting.

 

"Conversely, The O2 measurements all the faibois are using as their bible to defend their opinions come from the same guy who designed the damn thing. A creator cannot be perfectly objective towards its own creation. Something can only become a scientific fact after the results have been replicated from different teams not having any interests in the final results."

 

See Innerfidelity for conformation of the measurements. The O2 measured better than seven other amps IIRC. 

 

"For instance. If I look at the graphs of the HE-500s and even the worlds best SS amp with silver wire and a fancy 6.3 mm plug, I would be lead to believe that they sound amazing. However, I think they sound like total junk IMO."

 

Yeah well the HE-500's measure like junk so. . . no.  

 

"If you're trying to sound like an objectivist, you're doing it wrong. This is a personal attack on the designer of B22, you've not shown any evidence that the B22 is not a good amp, where as third party measurements previously posted have shown that the B22 measures well."

 

Very well I took a look at them, the guy might be able to design overly expensive well performing amps at least. Congrats you seem to have a brain.
