    Have you been able to do measurements against say a standard switch? That could certainly dispel their findings. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Thanks for the Valvet comments. I've spoken with the UK distributor today and he will arrange a loan of his demo E2se when he gets it back from a dealer. It'll be interesting to compare it with my very different Purifi-based Class D amp. Peter
