Well, we all know all amps sound differently. Duh! I can hear the night-and-day significant difference a mile away and blindfolded since I have golden ears. Don't be jealous and call me a liar if you're not blessed with golden ears.\n\nI also have golden eyes so I can see a huge difference between 8K vs 1080p a mile away. Don't be jealous either. But that's another thread.\n\nSo the only real question is, how chocolaty, how minty, how sweet, and just exactly how airy do the different amps sound?\n\nMy Yamaha MX-A5000 11Ch amp sounds exactly 19.46% minty, 20.73% chocolaty, 19.86% airy, and 39.95% sweet.\n\n\nBack in the 90’s during my audiophile days, I was told by expensive hifi dealers that midfi stereo receivers sound 25% salty, 25% semi-sweet, 25% vinegar and 25% sweet-tart.
