checking out the APRIL issue, no comment from CHORD on it's failure to meet it's specs. But it's a GLORIOUS who needs all them extra watts $75,000 product. Let us all remember double the loudness is 10X the power!!! What's a few hundred missing WATTS. Gee, somehow when I went from single to B-AMP now 4 MONO high powered amps, not just volume increase but clarity and CONTROL. From a mere 300W PC to now about 4200W system Watts, but hey, it's not $75,000 worth of special watts, it's just mortal high powered CLEAN, smooth FAST, 800V/us watts, with a freq response out from DC to 500,000Hz. but it doesn't have Glorious metal working, as detailed in the verbage , about how wonderful this miss the spec amp is. StereoPhile continues to entertain. I will continue to subscribe, it's ENTERTAINMENT. At it's best. Now where did I put my Mapingo DOTS, I think I need to control something somewhere. After a session of reading StereoPhile, I need to quickly open up ProAudio Review and Pro Sound News, to get back to reality. thanks StereoPhile, keep up the entertainment, $75,000 amplifier, and it don't even deliver it's advertised specs!!!! And it gets top recomendations in the listings of Recomended components!!!!! With not even a hint of SHAME!!!!
