Or is that 14V into your 1 Ohm, which would be 196W/1 Ohm? Also 20 Amps of current? If so, I see why so many have failed, those people make audio amps, not welding machines.
Yes VA figures, 14 is a rare peak , mostly see peaks around 10-11 va, avg din 3-4 va. so i dont need BIG power.....

Yes, then there's that, too.

Perreaux used that as an advertising gimmick in the '70s.
They'd throw one of their power amps from the factory roof onto the car park below and then use it to power some speakers.

That was before they specialised in the audiophoolery market with its insane profit margins.

Just read the Amcron DC 300 spec . From 100 Hz up input noise less than 10 nV . That is as good as some op amps people rave about here . I have always been told the DC 300 is like a farm tractor . Not to my ears .

With a slight hotrodding could be a great amp .

Why not?

Way back in the early 80ies, I auditoned their 100W/8 Ohm per side MOSFET amp, if memory serves, their first world known product. It stuck in my memory as one the very few MOSFET amps I really liked and would like to own ...

Obviously, something happened in the meanwhile.

Well, I've just discovered an excellent resource for allowing people to be able to compare the reproduction capabilities of gear working at different quality levels, courtesy of Peter Breuninger at AVequipmentReviews - YouTube. Same room, same position for sound pickup, same recording gear - you even have pickup of Peter's speaking voice in the clips to serve as a reference point. Even some of the people on this forum who may be 95% deaf to the subtleties, , , might, just might, be able to pick something in it ... .

On a quick glance, at opposite ends of the spectrum, we have Quintessence Stealth Loudspeaker Listening Evaluations, pt 3 of 4 - YouTube, oh dear, - and then showing the sort of ballpark one should be aiming for, SMc VRE-1C Preamplifier Review, part 2, amazing listening sessions - YouTube. Note that in the latter one can use the lowest quality download speed and still 'get it' - and how the quality in that replay varies during the clip - due to the usual problems ...
