I am proud to be an engineer, and am sticking with calculated designs and measured results.

As am I.

However I'm also proud to be an audiophile who appreciates superb sound and realises that, unfortunately, you have to spend decent money to get this and that not everything expensive is simply bling boutique tat designed by cynical opportunists to empty your wallet and do little else.

True. But it leaves the problem that many people can read a price tag, but far fewer can assess a design.

It is also far easier to put a high price on a piece of low performance gear than it is to put high performance in a piece of low price gear.

Who said the universe had to be fair? Or symmetrical?

Hello,

I have done exactly that.

Recently we designed an amplifier with both a good technical and sonic performance with an entry level price tag (thatís the sales name for it) which had to be entirely made in the UK.

We did it, but it wasn't that easy Ė canít say it did our nerves any good though.

Sadly, we didnít have the budget for a symmetrical design

Ps. And there was EMC compliance to do as well... augh

Regards
Terry
