Sushi, I found your post at the AVS Forum where you referenced the following (a-b comparison data)--simply amazing (especially regarding SS amps):

... when put to the test ... using your ears, you cannot tell the difference between a $500 and a $5,000 solid state amplifier...

the statistics in the study show a 50-50 (50%)correllation--in other words, guesswork when using your ear to try to tell the difference between two solid state amps.

there was a statisticaly valid correllation for tubes--you can tell the difference...

Well, I did not discover that link. I believe that it was originally linked here by (again) JohnK, although I cannot find his original post right now.
