Yeah, I wonder what's going on with the 80 dB dynamic range. Hopefully we'll get an answer from Dan.

This is at 1 watt, at full power it will be close to 105 dB.

At RMAF, Dan just told me it should be more like 100 dB (he said the 80dB figure was an error) which seems to jive with what Wizard said. Poor S/N at one watt would be bad, given few of us listen at full power.

I was just in there, and that amp is HUGE

I know there are many fans of the Momentum looks,M but to my mind this is a much more attractive, classy looking amp.

What you describe is a spec for speakers.

S/N ratio has to do with the amp's noise floor. Essentially how quiet the amp is when there is no signal.

If anyone tries this amp out vs. something else good, I'd love to hear the outcome. I may bring one home and pit against my Ref75. I wish they made it in silver finish, it would kind of match my ARC and Esoteric gear.
