The more I think about this, the more I realize what a service Amir is providing!
His website doesn't have advertising (which is reassuring from an "independent lab" perspective).
I'm not sure if he gets anything out of web-traffic without ads, so don't know if there is any income to offset his shipping costs!
In any case, I am more than happy to donate the shipping cost and use of the amp to have access to the measurements he provides and would encourage anyone who finds his site useful to donate $5 or $10 (or whatever)!
It is a nice service. Better than reading his arguments on jitter with Arny K :)

I don't worry too much about Amir financially, tho, I'd think his Microsoft days have made for a very comfortable retirement. I think he does ask for contributions to the site, tho (and you've done your share by providing an actual unit to test too).

Sincere thanks for your contribution to this review @KEW !
You contributed greatly too. With the pictures you provided, even without the measurements we could give an educated guess of the Outlaw's performance at least in terms of output.

By the way you seem to have a strong electrical background, if I am not mistaken.

Thank you PENG, that means a lot coming from you. I only took a few years of electronics in a government high school and learned some basics there. I‘ve learned more about amplifiers in the past month than I’ve ever known thanks to people like you.

That explains it. I knew from your first few posts, you are just being humble. Good to see more people with even just basic electrical/electronics principles anyway. I am not a electronic designer, but I read a lot and would usually try my best to understand what I read.

Hey Rich, wanted to call your attention to the measurements being completed!
Any speculation on why the 2200 sounded harsh?
Do the measurements provide any clues (I know you are more savvy with them than I)?
Do you think you had a defective unit (or two?)?
Do you think that perhaps the F206's are a heavier load than you previously believed (such that you were pushing past this amps capabilities)?
Speculation sure, the rail switching. Evidence, it's not in those measurements.
Thanks for supplying the amps to Amir.

Some possibilities come to mind:
  • This was over 6 years ago, so the design may be been improved
  • The measurements tools power versus distortion at 1kHz are not capturing the issue
  • It was subjective, and I did know they were rail switching, so... :p
