I think it proves that subjective opinions are not really reviews. :D\n\nThe question is, do their $8,000 amps also measure 0.02% THD+N at 1kHz and cannot output the specified power output before clipping with 11% THD+N? :D\n\n\nThe answer was probably hinted (not by the reviewer) in the second last section:\n\nStarke Sound A2.640 Power Amplifier Review - HomeTheaterHifi.com\n\nOn The Bench\nI compared in-room frequency response with other amplifiers on hand to that of the A2.640, and (as expected) found no differences. The differences that I hear from this amplifier are not frequency response related. Instead, detail, transparency, and bass control are audibly better with the A2.640, but these are measured with instruments that I do not have access to. I think that the A2.640’s excellent imaging is an artifact of an extremely low inter-channel crosstalk figure; again, this is speculation on my part. A bench test was planned for this amplifier, but due to scheduling considerations, became infeasible.
