Some famous reviewers have atrocious listening rooms!
A reviewer has a working system. They change things out a good bit. This means nothing is fully optimized. Toss in bias and I consider reviews interesting and entertaining but not definitive just opinions.  
Considering A 20-40 Watt Stereo SET Amp
