OOps.  Post the 8 ohm power sweep.  Here is 4 ohm:    
What does Nominal Impedance mean?
@ozzy  What does Nominal Impedance mean? I’m trying to decide on some new speakers (Clarisys Minute). They are rated at 86-88 sensitivity and a nominal impedance of 3.5 flat. Although graphs show it about 6 ohms from 20hz-500hz and at 2Khz and ... 
AUDIO SCIENCE REVIEW and $50 to spend.........
@andy2 Hi Amir, How would you propose we measure the LessLoss BlackGround 10x Power Base :-)? Five ways: 1. Measure the sound waves coming out of different audio products. Contrary to their marketing attempts, we don’t listen to ground, pow...

@ozzy I have noticed there has not been any new ASR videos on the site for several months. What’s the deal? Banana rotten? More like rotten software.  I use OBS for my videos. I recorded a near 1 hour tutorial on how to read DAC measurements. ... 
AUDIO SCIENCE REVIEW and $50 to spend.........
@oddiofyl  Sometimes they measure what is a great product.   The RME adi2 DAC was the darling of ASR until it's measurements were surpassed by some Chi Fi DAC which of course they loved. Who is "they?"  Countless people have RME DACs and love ... 
Nearly all manufacturers do not advertise/exhibit their product measurements? Why?
@bigtwin  @mastering92  Re Amir and ASR.  I asked Paul at PS Audio to explain how Amir's testing of the PS Audio Power Plant showed the device did nothing at all.  Here's Paul's reply, which I got in only one day.  That's impressive in itself H... 
Nearly all manufacturers do not advertise/exhibit their product measurements? Why?
@bolong If you can’t trust your ears, what makes you think you can trust measurements? Oh, we trust your ears completely. It is the rest of your body which you include in "sound" evaluation that causes problems. This is the reasons audio rese...

@mastering92  What success?  A failed tech executive at Microsoft, worked at Sony for a while, made no meaningful contributions that stand today. No one from his generation knows who he is or what he does. Man, that is a meanspirited thing to... 
Nearly all manufacturers do not advertise/exhibit their product measurements? Why?
@mastering92  So you are the audio measurement god and all companies must yield before you so that you can measure their electronics and rank them on your website? Who cares what they use. Does it sound good? That's what really matters. Anothe... 
Nearly all manufacturers do not advertise/exhibit their product measurements? Why?
@mastering92  Tell me what you think the product does (product description) and I will tell you if it meets those standards/fills that purpose. That is truly all a prospective buyer needs to know. Good enough or optimal for them, then they can b... 
Nearly all manufacturers do not advertise/exhibit their product measurements? Why?
@mastering92  Small amounts of current or voltage variation can influence how well an audio component performs. Different types of metal - copper, silver, CCAW wire can impact sound quality. Why be so opinionated, as though only you are right?! ... 
Nearly all manufacturers do not advertise/exhibit their product measurements? Why?
@mastering92 Have you visted manufacturing facilities and corporate/engineering offices to confirm these supposed findings? I would think that any popular or even remotely successful audio manufacturer has more money than you, so being able to a... 
Good read: why comparing specifications is pointless
“The hope of film buffs and makers alike is an experience that fully transports the audience into the world of the characters,” said Auro Technologies CEO Wilfried Van Baelen. “Having major releases from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment incorporat... 
Good read: why comparing specifications is pointless
@kota1 You are the one that decided to brand your website as "science". You admittedly are neither a scientist nor have a "lab"/studio/listening room that follows well established specs (see Toole, Kota1, Abbey Road, Sony, and Dolby Institute in... 
Good read: why comparing specifications is pointless
@kota1  Almost all reviews include a list of the writers reference system components, the test conditions the equipment was used in, the content played during the review, comparisons to equipment from competitors, and possibly measurements. Wh...
