Can you provide some links where receivers measured better than processors? I'd find that interesting. Just curious... not calling you a liar here.\n\nAre you saying that the Marantz technologies actually sound worse than Denon, because of HDAM?\n\nThe online source was started by a guy name Amir. He started a forum and named it Audio Science Review. He started out measuring a bunch of DACs. Then was lucky enough to have many forum members to support him and actually loan him their equipment like AVR and processors. It is an online forum, not a magazine like Stereophile, Sound & Vision, etc.\n\nBefore anyone gets too exited about these numbers, they are completely inaudible- unless you can hear the difference between THD of 0.0007% vs 0.01% in your house.
