Two amps that are capable of driving a set of speakers in a particular room can only sound slightly different at best if they are designed to measure well. What that difference may mean to you may not mean anything to me and it is very likely not what the recording engineer heard or intended either and not just due to the amp differences...

    So here we are, with two amps, trying to convince each other my choice is the right one, which would be the typical audiophile forum discussion... But the speaker and room interaction will still typically far outweigh any meaningful differences between a high value/lower cost components vs premium components with the well known rule of diminishing returns.

    The youtube comments on comparison videos will also typically be split 50/50 unless there is a clear deficiency with one of the variables.. Because it is a matter of a perceived difference without a reference point.



    So here we are having fun with it all.

    You make no sense. The room was the same. This had nothing to do with the room. It was comparing 2 amps in the same room. Stay on task like your 6th grade teacher told you.

    Obvious to me you skipped out on most of your 6th grade classes. Go back and reread my post and try to apply some logic but try not to overstrain your brain...

    Picking a winner in one room and a set of components means absolutely nothing in the context of another room and a different set of components. In Jays room one can declare a winner due to personal preference. In another room it will be a different result.

    Um no. Not all amps are the same. Some are clearly "better". Your point is taken (there is no absolute reference) , but you really need to let it go. The video is not a scientific experiment. Jay's videos are a combination of entertainment and learning about different brands. I appreciate his efforts, even though I don't always agree with his opinions.

    His points are valid for a different conversation. Obviously the room is a important part of making a proper sounding system but has nothing to do with Jay's experiment.

    I never questioned the entertainment value and Jayís efforts to compare/contrast gear in his room for whatever purpose/end game he has in mind. Iím sure he will attract lots of viewers over time.

    We approach this hobby as if everything makes a difference. That seems to hold true for most, even cablesÖ for some.

    If everything makes a difference and one component is clearly better that others, one still should keep in mind a system is a sum of its parts together with your room and your own ears. No one can share or possibly agree in absolute terms on your inner experience and reality created in your head by external stimuli.

    We tend to describe components as if they stand on their own. So what does an amp or a preamp sound like if they will sound different in different systems and rooms?

    Do components have a sound all of their own? No, they do not and it is impossible to isolate them, but to go on pretending like we can, sure seems to be popular.

    Synergy is a sum of all the parts that go into a system, including your room and ears. There is no way to get around that concept and reality.

    Re: Jay's Audio Journey

    The issue i see is that there are way too many " audio gurus" advising on how to build a world class system. Yet, they don't own one? You all haven't seen the YouTubers that preach components they don't even own?
    Why would you ask a Toyota owner how good a Ferrari is? Why would you ask a paralegal for legal advice instead of a lawyer?
    Why would anyone ask a Pivate First Class how to get promoted to a Sergeant? Why not just ask your Sergeant what you need to do in order to earn a promotion?
    This is the only hobby where i have noticed this idiocy.
    Too many people with "audio PhD" but yet their own rig hasn't even received a GED in terms of performance.
    Ask dealers who you trust as well as those individuals who have a rig better than your own how to make yours better. If that person can't articulate how to do this then find another person or dealer that can.

    Also think its the only hobby (that I can think of and participate in) in which there is so much vitriol for the "high-end" products and their respective price points.

    This has been always been the case for decades... Still today, people believe cables don't matter, all amps sound the same etc..

    Keep up the good work Jay.

    If anyone thinks all amps sound the same or cables don't matter, they should invest in apple airpods and not own a system. They would find far more enjoyment.

    Not sure about you Jay but I have owned 5 Ferraris, 12 Porsche, 10 BMWs as well as having built many serious systems and even custom rooms for them. Yet I would not personally advise anyone to buy a performance car or build a world class system.

    What is a world class system exactly? Many different answers to that question.

    It is all personal preference and enthusiasts know what they want when they get to that level.

    Having said that, it's still fun to watch reviews and hear opinions. Every hobby thrives on input of other enthusiasts.

    Re: Jay's Audio Journey

    If people want to attempt to "cook" gourmet meals when their experience is limited to macaroni and cheese and ramen noodles, that's totally fine but they should know that they are more than likely going to fail at it until they have perfected it. This only comes with trial and error and trying the same recipe many times until they can cook it with their eyes closed. After a while, it becomes quite easy to make this same recipe taste amazing each and every time because you've mastered it. They know exactly how much salt to sprinkle and how much sugar it needs. Hell, they end up having to just eyeball the amounts of each ingredient and they still make it taste amazing.
    I am not saying anyone in here is guilty of it at this time, but we can all agree we have been through it.
    Nobody can say they haven't F@ked things up ever EVER with their system - 9/10 this is how we all learn.

Got to drive them and walk away with more coins in the pocket than they cost me. Same with the Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale. Iíve lost money on corvettes, mustangs, Nissan GTR and Audi R8 V10 6 speed manual (which I should have kept longer). Net- net the hobby was fun and didnít cost me much of anything in depreciation in the 15 years I was into cars due to people willing to pay premiums on rare Porsche cars.

    I had my fun for sure. I didnít get out to track as much as I was hoping to and driving a car that is meant mostly for track on the street gets old. A few blasts here and there gets the adrenaline going but it is completely idiotic to try to tap into the potential of a performance car on the street. Itís like playing with a 2000w amplifier and trying to see if you can reach clipping levelsÖ

    Plenty of great track toys to chose from if one is serious about driving at 8/10 and higher on the track where they shine

    Hi Serge ,

    Very familiar with all of the cars listed but what about the audio, did you ever pursue a sota system ...?

    Regards
    Sure for 30 yearsÖ All kinds of systems. ARC, Lamm, McIntosh, Krell, Bryston, BAT, etcÖ many different speakers.

    The pinnacle of my personal quest was a custom build dedicated 2Ch/Theater room with all Wilson speakers (Alexia, Polaris then Mezzo, Watch surrounds and DíAgostino Momentum monoblocks driving 3 front channels and Brystons on the surround and rear Wilsonís. All transparent cabling.

    It was a very fun room to watch music concerts and listen to music. I moved to another house some years later. Would I do it again? NopeÖ Iím just having too much fun listening to my favorite jazz in a much smaller room which sounds very good with my Harbeth speakers. As far as movies, todayís 4K OLED screens are more than adequate so I canít get enough motivation going to try and duplicate or best the previous attempt with a custom room and a projector.

    This was my pinnacle and as far as I got.

    Thanks

    Yes Harbeth 30.2 and PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium HP with EL34’s running in triode mode most days. The Harbeth are fairly tube friendly. It’s a system I assembled for a musical and fatigue free presentation. It delivers. I could play the upgrade game but see no need for now and it’s been a few years already which is way longer than was the norm

    @Jay, thank you very much. The problem as I'm sure you have surmised from all those asking the same question is that it essentially turns into a
    "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" proposition that captures more attention due to objection than the test scenario you are hoping
    to promote.

    I also understand there are many possible reasons why you might not want to, or be able to show the compared piece(s) in question however there are a multitude of better ways to say that.

    I understand. The issue is that there are way too many channels reviewing the Rotels and Parasounds of the world. I don't want to jump on the same bandwagon but i am open to bringing in an affordable component occasionally.

    Agree; however, my interest, and I suspect that of many in your audience, is not in the Rotel/Parasound category but what comes between these and ultra high end lines like the Soulution 700 series.

    Bud, you should try it sometime. I'm sure those old aluminum braced box speakers of yours will get you in the ballpark of sound

    Agreed. I do think getting the new B&W 801d4 in the lab would be fun and good for the channel. Such an iconic brand, series.

    I am happy to announce that last night i had the pleasure of having Teeka Tiwari in my lab. He found me on YouTube and flew in from Puerto Rico to meet me and to have a chance to listen to my system for roughly 5 hours. The interview goes live today at 1130am ET. Hear his thoughts from inside the room.
    Iím pretty excited to go to Puerto Rico to assemble his first system.
    This is the beginning of things to come.
    2022 should be promising folks!

    Hey Jay what did you think about the Constellation Pictor preamp? Mid tier or bottom tier in preamps?
