In this brief video, I show you how to determine good vs great amplifier performance based on objective measurements. We discuss amplitude response behavior under various load conditions, power vs distortion and FFT analysis, and Signal to Noise ratio. I show example measurements from various amplifiers I've reviewed over the years. Price does NOT always dictate performance.

00:00 Introduction
01:25 Frequency Response
03:58 Power vs Distortion
10:22 FFT Distortion Analysis
13:56 Signal to Noise Ratio
15:02 Amplifier Comparison Pass Labs vs Classe
18:25 Recap on Measurements: Synergy?
