Has someone the Luxman P750u? Wondering how they drive the Susvara must be made in heaven.
The Luxman drives the Susvara’s brilliantly!

I have no problem with Amir and do appreciate his work and all the info he shares. What I don't like is this closed minded cult that has formed around him that believe a handful of measurements tell you everything you need to know about something as subjective as hifi.

Also, this obsession with distortion figures and SINAD as if we're talking about equipment made to detect heart arrhythmia in a clinical setting. Whoever said distortion is bad when it comes to music? That's a joke to rock music, people who enjoy tube amps, or even precision crafted solid state amplifiers that use harmonic distortion to add character and a bit of warmth to the sound signature.
Regarding distortion, you're conflating music with music reproduction. If you prefer distortion in the latter, that's your own business, but a lot of people, myself included, are strictly interested in high fidelity equipment.

ASR gets a lot of flak on this site, but it serves a very valuable purpose... to some of us. People who think that great audio equipment is the result of magic and serendipity can safely ignore it.

Not trying to pick a fight with you, but what about the "flak" ASR itself and its flock of adoring acolytes enjoy dishing out to others, under the pretext of their "science" and "measurements"? By others, I mean not only certain manufacturers and their products, but also those whom they deem "foolish" enough to spend their money on such products.

Shouldn't a "give and take" (of "flak") be considered "fair" in the spirit of public debate in this particular case? :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Again, not meaning to pick a fight. I'm just saying if they can gleefully give, then they must be ready to take gleefully as well, in the spirit of "fair is fair." Don't you agree? :slight_smile::slight_smile::slight_smile:

Better then V281?
Yes it does. The Luxman is cleaner sounding throughout the entire frequency spectrum. The Luxman also has better midrange performance, more soundstage depth, better imaging, and more insight into the music.

How about the bass? Any distinguished properties worth noting about how the Luxman handles bass as compared to the V281? Also, if you do not mind my "piling it on," how does the Luxman stack up against the XI Audio Formula S and Powerman combo (if the powerman is available, that is)?

Oh, I completely agree that some of the attitude and dogma routinely directed at subjectivists on ASR gets tiresome. OTOH, the site is Audio SCIENCE Review and there are plenty of other platforms for trading opinions. I don't really have a problem with people here giving ASR flak, but to write the entire site off as useless or a waste of time is just silly. There's a lot of useful info there, and one can learn to tune out the noise, much as I've learned to skim over posts here that talk about "audiophile" Ethernet switches and other such tweaks.
