    ^^^^LOL...But seriously in all fairness, if someone wants to bring Emo gear next May to LSAF in Dallas to do comparisons, Skip and I will provide his Ushers and my Dynaudio speakers.

    We can have a 3rd party switch cables to the Emo gear and whatever else we have in the rack while everyone stands outside the room. We can run the same spl and music selections with no conversations and present and A/B evaluation.

    Marvdai, assimillated and others usually attend

    Could be interesting....or not

    All in good fun

    Since I left out the word "inexpensive" which I honestly thought was no biggee because the way it's written it pretty much lumps them into the same category. Now if Jim had said that he recommends the inexpensive Emotiva XPA-2 along with more expensive amps, like some of the Frank Van Alstine models and the BAT VK600 then that would offer more clarification. I just though it was nice that a well respected audio guru felt that the Emo was up to the task to compliment his new speaker, nothing more, nothing less. But damn around here once someone mentions anything positive about an Emo product all hell breaks loose.
    Emotiva XPA 2, 300 watts per channel, $899
    Van Alstine FET Valve 600R, 300 watts per channel, $3,499
    BAT VK600, 300 watts per channel, $6,399

    Since TAS is an audiophile publication, I think it is safe to assume that the general readership would know, even without checking prices, that Salk did not mean to suggest that the Emotiva was comparable to any of the Van Alstine or BAT amplifiers. There was no clarification needed. Definitely, when we compare the prices of comparably powered Emotiva, Van Alstine and BAT power amplifiers, we see that they are aimed at very different market segments. The Van Alstine costs nearly 4x the price of the Emotiva. The BAT costs nearly 2X the price of the Van Alstine and over 7X the cost of the Emotiva.

    When the prices of the three amps are considered, the following comment does not make sense to me:

    After a pair of Salk speakers, most customers have enough budget left for the Emotiva amp?

    I think Mr. Salk is making a sales pitch instead of recommending Emotiva. You can afford his speakers if you use Emotiva.

    Or he might just be making a blanketed sales pitch to cover the customers from all trades of life.

    He might have encountered some people who believes speakers are so important that they will spend 30K on it and $400 for the amp.

    It seems Mr. Salk got them covered too by mentioning Emotiva.
    Trying out Different Audio Cables is a Religious Affair. You don't discuss it with anyone.

    If, however, I were to say that "Emotiva builds solid gear FOR THE PRICE, but that I don't care to own it because I like my gear better"... then perhaps I recommend something other than Emo to somebody... well that is brand-bashing in the eyes of Emoettes the world over, and if my address were public knowledge, I would need to join a witness protection program.

    The gear is not the problem... I hope that clarifies things for you.

    Interesting that we seem to have circled around to agreeing that Salk was providing different amp options based on cost...

    Since you know the first response in this thread was this.....

That and if its for the speaker manufacture to test with, lots of folks have Emotiva gear, or gear in that price point, so seeing how their speakers sounded on High end amps and entry level would be something they want to test IMHO. Not arguing one way or the other.

    Cathy is an example of said type of consumer. She's content reaching a certain level and staying put. It would also depend on the speakers as well, and what level they are really wanting to reach.

    Confused why you quoted me and posted that.

    My post makes no mention of "good" or "bad" when discussing amps.

    I believe that amps have a unique sonic signature which is what I was referring to. Also most higher end amps tend to have a better sound signature IMHO.

    But again I was simply posting he listed 3 options for folks on a budget more than likely off the top of his head. Doesn't mean he has or hasn't heard emotiva amps, he simply threw out their name as a entry level option.

    Ok. How about the possibility that he has heard all the amps he recommended. There is also the possibility he has heard others of varying costs and didn't mention them for one reason or another. Again Mr. Salk didn't mention budget. He mentioned amps. He didn't make any observations about their sound signature. Just ones that get the job done.

    What you didn't get about my reply to you is your are assuming that he is basing recommendations on cost. We do not know that. That bias needs be removed from the conversation. We don't know what was in his mind when he made the recommendation. I hope that clears up the 'why' when I replied to you.

    No cover up needed on that. The forum is littered with closed threads that demonstrate exactly what I pointed out. Emo threads go off the rails not because someone disparaged the brand, but because an Emoette goes bonkers at the mere suggestion that there is better gear out there. It also explains why nobody ever gets banned for brand-bashing....because it does not happen.

    JFK was killed by space aliens however, over his plans to place a man on the moon... Now THAT is a cover-up!

    Monk, "getting the job done" is the bare minimum requirements for what an amp does. That is, it amplifies a signal. You are still either completely disregarding or completely not seeing that an amp can also amplify a signal to produce higher or lower quality audio. A higher quality amp will produce a better soundstage, have higher transparency, higher detail, better imaging, and finally something that is more subjective; that being having a warmer, neutral, or bright sound signature. You are still trying to imply that when Jim Salk mentioned all the amps he did, he meant that they were all equal to each other in terms of the qualities above, which again leads us back to my previous statement:

    Quote Originally Posted by headrott View Post

They are NOWHERE near the same level. That's just the way it is. Period.

You are still either completely disregarding or completely not seeing that an amp can also amplify a signal to produce higher or lower quality audio. A higher quality amp will produce a better soundstage, have higher transparency, higher detail, better imaging, and finally something that is more subjective; that being having a warmer, neutral, or bright sound signature. You are still trying to imply that when Jim Salk mentioned all the amps he did, he meant that they were all equal to each other in terms of the qualities above, which again leads us back to my previous statement:
    Monk will only be happy if the man himself comments, much like he needed a Polk engineer to confirm the LSi9 is indeed a bookie.

    I'm not saying anything of the sort. What I did say was ask Mr. Salk. I also maintain that he listed a series of amps that get the job done. No more no less. I also said that I think the emphasis on 'inexpensive' was the writer of the piece in question.

    So I find myself asking why a Parasound Halo21 at $2200 didn't get mentioned, or a Rotel RB-1582 ~$1500 (may be it doesn't do 4 ohm) or Anthem, or Monarchy, or... I'm sure all these amps 'will get the job done'. It's also 'subjective'.

    Much like you still don't realize there is a class of speakers referred to as stand mount. Be careful who's ignorance you are attempting to point out. BSC anyone?

    I still welcome commentary from any source of the product in question. Whether Salk or some Polk Engineers. I'm certainly not above sitting down, shutting up, and listening to them.

    You didn't really expect the man to go down the laundry list of amps did you ? You guys are really making a mountain out of a mole hill on this.

    Phil, you know I love ya bro, but you indeed stirred that pot.

    In all things in life, their exists different levels of quality and build, and yes....sound, to accommodate anyone's wallet or ears. Whats so frickin' hard to understand about that ?

    I already pointed out that Polk calls the LSi 9's and LSiM 703's bookshelf speakers in ALL of their product information. So, now you can sit down and shut up.
