Technical and scientific discussion of amps, cables and other topics.

RE: "Amp designs haven't changed much in the last 30 years."

I must say that I'm a bit shocked at the comment since you assumedly get to hear lots of amps. If you are listening to amps with much newer and better caps, resistors, connectors... they "should" in general blow away some 30 year old a Yamaha. I am talking about amps made with some thought about quality parts. I'm sure plenty of amps uses mediocre stuff but I feel it is a big disservice to customers if they do if they are catering to audio people. The Yamaha probably has 3 cent resistors in them. There is likely not one high end part in it. It also has the disadvantage of having so many controls. T456
