Hey guys, so many threads end up closed due to Team ThreadCrap whose members always feel like showing biased measurements and explaining to the world that their $90 amp sounds exactly the same as any $3K amp, meaning that anything costing more than $90 is audiophool snake oil yada yada...they also honestly seem to believe that their duty is to save the humanity from being robbed. So I thought it was time to finally put an end to all this, and I've got clues this time A design engineer who's a discrete believer recently told me: Couldn't have said it better, yes 5532 is the RMAA pimp daddy yet it does sound like ####. http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/everything-else/88894-discrete-components-better-than-opamps.html http://www.gearslutz.com/board/4432704-post5.html and I see that the latest Sabre DAC chips carry built-in opamps now, so every manufacturer will throw killer THD+N measurements at 'cha as if they meant anything useful at all. If Audio-GD decided to call all their latest DAC's "No Feedback", there's a good reason to it So feedback is evil, and opamps measurements don't mean jack. Thanks for passing by.
