I had some people over tonight to listen to some great music. Everyone was loving it. I heard muddiness and veiled sound. After everyone left I did a double clean on the degaussing of the P20 and spun some reference tracks. Same story. So time for autotune That is when I noticed incoming power distortion at 3.8 percent. What gives on a Tuesday night? Yes an Asian Holiday mid autumn moon festival,but is it running the power grid? A whopping 140 percent past the normal. The output distortion was running double at 0.2 percent???
The explanation and sound differences bowled me over. Yes 0.2 percent outgoing is way worse than 0.1 percent. I finally shut down the system and went to bed. What a let down. I was at a loss for the difference. The missing recording venue spatial reference and the clarity.
I guess I need a P40, PSA please invent one. I love the P20. But yes I admit I am now spoiled.
