I an just stating the facts sir. Different people are born with different strengths and weaknesses. I was born with a superior intellectual capacity, and I am blessed to have had as much experience in life as I have had.
It is a curse more than it is a blessing because most people treat me as a...
It's a scientific fact that those with the greatest intellects have the ability to hear and perceive the most.
I the Great Genius am the worlds greatest intellectual, and my hearing acuity is world renowned.
I hear better than all of you, I have been involved in more critical tests than all of you, and I have more experience in all fields of live sound and audio reproduction than all of you. 52 years of experience at the highest levels.
I have no need or desire to explain myself or prove myself to...
So far, you seem to be the most ignorant person I have come across here. You still have a thing or two to learn in life son.
Take this as constuctive criticism, or take yourself out of my thread. It's your choice.
I am well aware of everything you have stated. This amp has been thoroughly tested and guarateed to work. But it will sooner or later need to br recapped, which I have been doing for years so no big deal.
I have been looked for Khartago's, and none of them are selling below their retail price...
You seem to be highly ignorant of the pioneering Japanese SS components, some of which set a standard for others to learn from to this day.
And then there are the benchmark setting Japanese tube components that no one else has been able to match!
You talk about how much better equipment is...
Yah, they seemed to have missed that this component is for my secondary system in my studio apartment, the likes of which is nothing to sneeze at.
I am not looking to go overboard in this noisy, undamped enviroment!
Are you'all having a good Christmas eve so far?
My career as an inventor and engineer is well documented here. I am also a life-long audio enthusiast with a weath of experience with gear from all time periods, but I don't have the time to go into all of that right now.
I have participated in many critical listening tests, and served as a...
I do appreciate your contributions, especially your Odyssey recommendation, so thank you for that as well as everyone else who has contributed here.
I don't mean to come off as a rude person. It's just that I am old and set in my ways!
You are both entitled and welcome to contribute your input. I am just letting you know what class this amp sits in.
And yes, the amp will likely need to be recapped, and the resistors will be scutinised as well.
This is unfortunate on your part. I am a well regarded expert in the field of...
I hate to have to inform you of this, but the Ultimate Integra M-505 was a SOTA product made from '77 until '83, which was then replace by the Grand Integra M-510 in '84.
The is very much a high end amp!
I can, and the secret is to understand its current weakness.
High order DSD suffers from a lack of fine resolution that affects both harmonics and inner detail.
If you hear well enough, you will be able to hear this relatively small but important difference.
