v6That insufficient power at distance is the primary cause of bleaching, roll-off, etc. Not all halls are great places to enjoy a concert. THX Movie theaters have many speakers throughout the theater in order to maintain a semblance of cohesivenes...

viber, yes you seem to continue to miss the point, but I believe you are a concert goer. Now image the difference in row 10 vs the back of the auditorium. Is the sound veiled back there, or is the auditorium draining the sound of it’s life before ...

Mr D I believe your Krell is pure class A (more akin to my Kinergetics Platinum KBA 75, itself the only amp I heard that grabbed the Ge V heads and made them dance) whereas the Adcom is not (with probably not even half the transformer power), hot ...

you seem to be hung up on what louder means. The AA DPA-1 was 125/200wpc. No matter how loud I cranked it, the music simply did not couple in my vacuous room. Moving so close as to turn my speakers into headphones is not an answer for meIf you eve...

I  am told it does incorporate a MHz filter

GfiI recall that thread, and I have no reason to doubt any of his aural observations, and/or happiness. My question is how close does the EVS 1200 come to it, or the other uber expensive GaN amps? I mean I use most of the same terms describing the...

joecasey +1MrD again, the issue for me is trying to achieve a proper coupling of spl to a volumetrically large room

GfiIMHO, comparing a 400w v 600w (even if they were the same tech from the same mfg) in a reasonably sized room would yield a different result, though likely slight, but HERE, where I have lived in for 25 years with many systems/components, it wil...

Keep in mind that the EVS 1200 is 600 wpc @ 4ohms per channel for $2200. The cost per watt is amazing (right Ric?)The GaN, by comparison is 200/400 wpc (1/3 the power). I have no idea whether it too is dual mono. Neither do I know whether they c...

Listen guys, I should be getting a GaN soon to beta test (no longer a prototype). As you all know, I am a huge EVS 1200 fanboy (disgustingly so, some would say).Now, if you trust my ears, and honesty to compare, contrast and evaluate the two, we s...

eric, the amps do not 'shut off' unless unplugged.They go into a standby modeTrying to convince Gfi is like trying to teach a pig to sing. "I" will soon have a GaN to compare, so time will tell 
$40,000: What 2-channel system would you build?
I agree, and so does Ric. He uses 2 independent 600 watt modules and includes 2 IECs, but only connects one. Further, RCA is NOT standardI am not a paid employee, just a very happy customer, so if you want to hear it, then you're coming hereDo a s...

$40,000: What 2-channel system would you build?
MrDMy bad, but that only makes the absurd price even more absurdWhat's the old saying? "A fool and his money are soon partedFool is probably a bit to harsh, but certainly an uneducated consumer (with money) is an easy mark, but then again, they go...

cascadesphil+1 for your evaluation... "I’d call the EVS amp neutral with tons of authority and precise imaging. It has wonderful tonality." You nailed it. I would add effortless at doing all those things. The music just flows, swells, jumps, is i...
