I think they meant that the output signal looked clean unlike other 'digital' amp designs they had seen before and so the design finally had real potential to turn out to be good and the end result is for all to see.
Ironically, the one thing he didn't want to hear, at least initially, was music amplified by the module itself. Much like Putzeys when he was designing the modules, van Amerongen wanted to look at the amplifier's output waveform. “The only thing he wanted to see was the output signal on an oscilloscope,” Putzeys recalls. “He looked at it, and in about one minute he said, ‘Okay, I want to buy a license.' He had seen so many dreadful outputs, full of RF hash. He could tell from the signal whether it was well designed.”
