I don't need experience with an amp to know how it will perform, given the appropriate set of measurements. I don't have those measurements for some amps (anything made by Schiit, for example), but I have seen sufficient data on both the Benchmark amps/dacs and the O2/ODAC to say with certainty that they are audibly transparent.
You're in the sound science forum. We believe in science here.
(If you have evidence showing that measurements are insufficient to quantify the sonic performance of an amplifier, I'd love to hear about it. However, note that evidence is not the plural of anecdote).
