Very good measurement results throughout. Only the upper cut-off frequency is rather mediocre at 44 kHz. DS Audio DS Two years after the introduction of the compact streaming amplifier M10 from NAD's Masters series, the Canadians now introduce an improved "V2" version.
Behind the scenes, however, the company evidently was very active and forged impressive new alliances with excellent developers. The new power amplifier C certainly benefits from all that.
Multiple Choice — The X4 preamplifier from Finnish manufacturer DSPeaker is as versatile as it is intuitive and aims to help any system achieve its full potential thanks to an integrated room calibration. All Digital, of Course — With the M33, NAD is making the definite step from a classic integrated amplifier towards an ultra-modern and complex all-rounder that can amplify, convert and correct the weaknesses a room might have.
All of that completely digital. In getting to know it, however, one quickly learns to appreciate the options and possibilities this DAC offers — while doing the same for its sound!
STEREO tests whether the smaller dimensions also lead to "smaller" performance of the narrow CD player, preamplifier and mono power amplifiers. Activated "Reference" — Canton has transferred the successful wireless smart technology from the Vento series to the flagship models of the Reference series. The 5K for 8, Euros is the first one to get "activated". Nevertheless it is a reason to celebrate. I agree that a blind test should be done with a certain method known to everyone and said method stuck to; cable A, B and then cable X and preferably nobody knowing what cable X is, so no 'surprises', otherwise the people listening will end up not knowing what is going on and will spend the time being paranoid and unfocused, "are they trying to make me look stupid", etc.
The Skeptic's attitude to blind testing The device worked 10 times out of 10 when the maker knew where the person was and 6 out of 25 times when the person was actually hiding. Imagine the consequences of people buying into that device not knowing it does not actually work. The test with dowser who got none right is thankfully less scary.
The article concludes that it is no wonder certain groups shy away from blind testing. I would have to add cable makers to that group. I am going to keep going with positive blind test results and adding them to the first post to make them easier to find.
I am sure that positive blind tests prove that blind tests are not rigged or are bogus. Joined Jan 24, Posts 8, Likes Many blind tests fail, although depending what you were trying to prove this may be success, because they begin with the stipulation that the devices under test be indistinguishable within some tolerance to non-human test equipment.
From this we can incorectly conclude no difference across the whole spectrum when all we have proven is that the listener is not as good as the machine at telling 2 pieces of gear apart.
If you remove the machine from the test It is not hard to make almost anything that makes an audible difference to the sound. Whether its better or worse is a matter of taste. Some things are simply screwed up, others are totally subjective. Joined Dec 20, Posts 16 Likes Interesting site none the less. I think it's useful to critically listen to things like this so when you make assessments on gear you can draw more accurate conclusions. The dynamic range test is especially useful to me.
