Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
Audiogon has done a great job. Sometimes people need to be able to share their stories rather than having them constantly censored like ASR does to anyone who questions their methods. I banned myself from that miserable cultist forum long ago and ...

mapman I agree with what you are saying and you’re right, it’s not all wrong. I just dislike when Amir takes matters out of context to suit his own agenda and gag others who have legitimate questions or concerns in his forum. Amir even allows his...

Spare me. Amir is absolutely full of himself, gloating in his arrogance.

amir_asr Why in the heck should anyone buy a tube amp when even a good example has this kind of noise and distortion?  As if to try to be hip by being contrarians, some audiophiles have clung to tubes, hypnotized by the glowing filaments, convin...

amir_asr You can still "love" said tube amp but don't go making an argument out of it. It doesn't bother me one bit whatsoever that you don't like certain tube amps, that's not the issue. I have a couple of friends who don't either and it's fine...

That's the problem with Amir, the guy doesn't listen to anything. He's strictly bias to measurements. The guy is extremely weird and needs a TK421.

Amir measured a VTAST70 and complained about the bass but he used a pair of Infinity 253. The guy doesn’t even consider how to match gear. It’s like driving a Formula 1 car in a Baja race and wondering why it came in last place.

Curios about the PeachTree GAN400. I've sometimes seen that PeachTree in general don't drive Maggies very well. Is this true overall?
