do all amps sound the same?
another forum thread (the one about nonexistence of a perfect amp) inspired me to start this thread. the answer to the question is yes. why is it so? the explanation can be found in the article I linked to below. quite lengthy but very educative IMO. please read if you haven't come across this article yet.
I don't want to spoil the fun of finding out what the article is about but it'll suffice to say I decided I'll never buy a piece of audio equipment judging only by my ears. if I don't see the graphs I'll remain unconvinced (I know this statement for most around here is simply unheard of! ).
EDIT: just spotted an error in my post. maybe it was too late when I wrote it. that highlighted sentence should read "the answer to the question is no". however, they can be made to sound the same... read on.
