Peter,
Did you say you are producing amplifiers?

Y'ever listened to the TEAC AH-500? I had a chance to play with one for a while a couple years ago. I found it quite impressive. Put it up against our $3,000 integrated and it held up quite well. Doesn't have gobs of power and it won't double as an arc welder, but within its own context, a very good amp in my opinion.

Default Les uns et les outres...

After being out for a while...and reading now the evolution of this thread...one thing is clear to me.

The times haven't changed much ,from the time when David Hafler propose this test of our days...nobody point any technical reason for the nulling test to be not a proof of amp linearity (input=output)...nobody but me and Nw_phile fell that it was a powerfull tool in acessing amplifier quality...

So it emerges that are 2 scholls of thougt here

1-only with two known menbers me and Nw_phile that belive that audio is a aplication of cience and that good design and some tests can can help in acessing the fidelity of the amp...

2-the other, the vast mayority of members that belive that listening is all...that more important that the nuling test, is the opinion of some one, that from other part of planet claim that capacitor A sound better that capacitor B witout any cientifical proof...and that a amplifier can make a role of Mozart and make better the original sound...

So my friend Nw_phile...now we are two!!!

Alone but happy!

Cheers

Default OT: He double blinded me with science....

I do get the reference.... I too miss the cleverly plaintive tunes of Thomas Dolby ( and who can forget the modulated wails of Peter Frampton's guitar?) But that line 'she blinded me with science' goes substantially further back. It was a line from an early Archibald Leach British movie offered by Cary after his pickup line was shot down by the soon to be love interest (Claudette Colbert???)

I've always assumed it is Cockney Rhyming Slang, but can find no reference. Any help from our pedants on the line's origin?

Yeah, but it'll sound like crap until you tweak it with an Audiophile Pricetag:

Default Sounds Like What ? - Who Cares So Long As It Is Good.

Hi Frank and Phred,
I've been at my Fathers place eating lunch, drinking Schnapps on my birthday and whooping it up and having a good time, and I fully agree with what I have read so far of what you both say.

Regards, Eric / - Some people understand, other idiots don't.
