Is this a flaw or a feature?

My thinking was that it might make those full range drivers sound "better". I have no experience with those. Nelson's designs seem more focused on creating a pleasant experience for the listener rather than technical specifications.

If 2 times greater distortion on 20KHz makes good sound for you than it`s a feature

Embarrassed to even ask this but comparing one of these SIT1 amps to my Harman Kardon 3390 (like $320 from amazon) are we talking a major difference? Like say a porsche to a ferrari?? or more like a Koenigsegg to a ford Pinto?

SIT1 is not a Koenigsegg for sure :-) More like an Alfa Romeo Touring Disco Volante other part is true ;-)

The devil is in the details. Forget the SIT1 for a second. The amount of detail a 2SK82 SIT can produce is rather amazing. There is a quality to the sound of a SIT is like, "How the heck is that possible?". It's a real, "That's what I have been looking for..." moment.
