    I'd probably get the sus first and do away with my a2o.

    Don't hold your breath. he's been asked for data on more than one occasion and failed to provide anything other than ramblings.

    Sure. The test proves wether your amp distorts, clips or if it carries on through to it's maximum output under high load. Three possible results that even you can personally try and confirm with ease. I didn't make this up, I'm just telling you how to do it correctly so you can see accurate...

    I can't attest to other threads. But most headphone amps have protection so you shouldn't fry anything. And you are listening for the distortion or clip. Once you hit it, you back off. No flex needed or wanted here sorry. It's just a test

    Yes and no. How would you like it backed up? (Apart from all the DATA we have given you in the form of equipment, result, volume levels recorded at etc) Could probably replicate it with a repeating frequency wave for scienticians I guess? But this is more an informal test designed to stress...

    Ah, going min/max volume percentage inna linear fashion eg volume control 0-100. The scale is -112db to +15 =127 steps (256 at 0.5db steps) 100/127=0.787 0.787*112=88 88% right??? but no it wouldn't be the same if you go by db Im honestly still confused trying to figure out that conversion...

    Any distortion etc or are you just maxing the power outputs on the amps, and not driving stealth to it's maximum? Interesting the 887 dosent clip. How many watts is that and what volume % or db? I'll have to retest my hpa4 as it's the 888 and definately hits protection mode at high volume on...

    Ok all good. To be clear I'm not a sceptic. If I can see solid information showing results I will believe it. If I can't be shown it then the other person is just persuing an interesting alternative with limited base or merit. So far I've seen no conclusive supporting evidence. Just claims...

    If your not clipping, your likely doing it wrong dude. You keep getting louder until it clips or distorts. If it dosent clip or distort and your amp is on MAX volume then it's another story mabey. Whats your amp/dac again, and what % vole are you getting up to? Facts aren't toxic btw. But I...

    That makes more sense. But still it should be a very light amount of noise, depending on devices. High end/commercial switching gear should have very low noise iirc. Again for home use it primarily comes down to poor receiving device design (in this idiots opinion) especially if it's designed...

    Not here for wisdom. I'm here for facts and reproducible data. Asr is good, but not everything. He presents Info data and facts that are reproducible. However measurments are only one part to consider in this hobby. I go to yt for subjective opinions. I get many on the same topic and then form...

    Interesting. Where did you publish the data. I'd love to look over it
