I’d still want an experienced ear to beat them up next to other amps. Remember Elliot, the first & last lesson in SMAART is if everything says it’s good but your ears say otherwise, it’s not good.
Hopefully the manufacture will create a PDF Manual for, showing the internals of an amplifier just brings forth more questions.
To my eyes, the faceplate always resembled a Crest Professional Series, with an LED array from the old BGW 750C. I cannot say I was surprised with the arrangement inside. It basically confirmed my assumptions.
I actually use my ears more often than viewing SMAART graphs and, use such illustrations to confirm my findings.
I am shocked Scott passed away. My thought patterns have shifted upon hearing the news.
