In the amplifier test we learned that good amplifiers operating well within limits are very difficult to hear – they are very close to perfect. But when you run out of power, things change dramatically – the inevitable distortion can certainly be heard, and different models will have their own signature sound when this happens.

Occasionally I am questioned for which processor and amplifier solutions can be used, especially in regard to crossover and bass system integration. Some have asked whether an ordinary AV-receiver or AV-processor can be used for this, they do have bass-management and necessary adjustment.

Vinyl sounds better, right? If so, there is a reason that can be explained in technical terms. Let us find out.
The answer is simply that vinyl does not sound better, in fact it is inferior to digital.

This is something I have though about a long time now – finding a method to reliably verify sound quality differences in power amplifiers.
Finally I have set up the necessary instrumentation to try out the method in practical experiments.
