He has spoken.

I think I'm fine with this cheap Sony thing I got yesterday.  Headhunters (my go to testing record) is thumping.

So what difference, if any, did you notice (besides appearance)

I get the concept of what a good amp can provide for the sound, but I’ve never heard the difference the amp makes

It adds clarity, detail and the potential for volume. It is well worth the investment.

You'll hear things you've never heard before, in songs you've listened to your whole life.

The difference between any amp, a good amp and a Julian's America amp is 100% incremental, and far superior than having no amp at all.

Its kind of like guacamole. Even mediocre guac is far superior to no guac, and excellent guac is only marginally better than good guac.

Guac.

Oh sure, you can claim that a vintage tube amp provides more nuance than a Sony doodad, but can you really hear the difference. Can you?

Are you listening to Spotify?

Did you convert all of your MP3s to FLAC because now they're lossless?

Do you still have your college roommate's JBLs from 20-years ago?

What a brilliant retort to that threaded manifesto

Bonus points for the guac 🥑 soliloquy

FLAC may be lossless but it really can’t replicate the warmth you get with SHN files with checksums.

There's an MC5/MD5 joke in here somewhere, but I'm too tired to think of it.
