Measure AC voltage across the + - speaker connections at the speaker, with the amp powered up but no signal input. This gives you emperical measurement that you can discuss with ZESTO.  You might also ask him to do the same with one or more of hi... 
Solid State Low powered Amplifiers
I am in exact same situation.  Class D is now competitive in many areas with Class A/B AND Class A. Listen to the low end FOSI V3 and a high end purifi amp.  I think you will be stunned how good they sound.   You want the Class D amps with the ... 
Using Wiim as a timer/alarm clock, triggering the whole system
You can buy relatively inexpensive "outlet" timers. I use one when on vacation to turn on and off at various times during the day and night lights and loud stereo. I use an analog timer, but I am sure there are digital times if you need accuracy.... 
on the cheap
I own 3 WIIMS and in my experience they are great if you are using them to output s/pdif into a better external dac. I did not like the sound from their analog outputs...

WHICH PS Audio regenerator do you have?  The reason I ask is that ASR did a disassembly of the newer unit type and found that the mains is still directly connected to the outputs.  All the newer units do is run a filter/regenerator that  contribut...

amp camp amp.  class a but small enough in output should not be a big heat generator.  
Do You Buy Speakers Without Hearing Them?
Never heard any speaker before I bought it except one (JBL L40) at the start of my hifi life. Since the L40s (handed down to baby brother) I bought Boston Acoustics A40, Proac D2, Reference3A DeCapo I, and ELAC DBR62 Reference. All have been kee... 
Started with $1k speakers … what now?
Can't possibly go wrong with Proac stand mounts.  Year after year, rave after rave from owners. It's the kind of standmount that even were you to move in a huge theatre, you would not want to part with your proacs. They do need current, not the ... 
Brag About Your Vinyl Collection
The gong hit at the end never fails to have my new listener's jaws drop and eyes go agog.    
Starting a Classical Vinyl Music Collection
Get an ultrasonic LP cleaner for sure.  Even when I clean new records, there is a bunch of vinly chips and dirt at the bottom of the bath when I clean them ultrasonically. Especially you will need one if you expect to buy any used LPs (which has ...

Analogue clipping from digital sources
and for everyone else, you can research "intersample peak" and intersample peak overs.  It is absolutely a known phenomenon among mastering engineers and discussed regularly, and demonstrated in various testing.  The consensus on audibility is th... 
Analogue clipping from digital sources
@antigrunge2:  please do your own research.  
Analogue clipping from digital sources
Are you referring to clipping?  I think it has been mathematically demonstrated that it is possible for PCM to clip during playback even though never detected during encoding...
