    To power what???

    You will be running active crossovers when you build your new speakers, what will you need that much power for?

    You can buy 2, A21's for that price.....................

    Well... I am considering things and stuff.

    I want the $850.00 interconnects also so I can complete the circle of nonsense.

    That's not remotely close to being two JC1 amps in a single stereo chassis. Compare the specs.

    If I couldn't afford a pair of JC1's, I'd prefer the A21 over this JC5.

    I disagree...

    Here's what I think one is paying for:
    • 12W Class-A output (versus what I believe is about 4 watts of Class-A power from the A21)
    • 4dB greater S/N with only 2dB more power output gain means the JC5 noise floor is 2dB quieter
    • THD is 0.05% at full rated power versus 0.2% for the A21
    • 50% greater current per channel for difficult loads
    Now, is it necessary to have all those things in order to get amazing sound at home? Hell no! But, if you have already spend everything you can on speakers, room acoustic treatments, and the other electronics that matter, one of these would be a logical upgrade from a lesser amp.

    The A21 is great, as are similarly priced amps from Monolith and ATI and such. This is just a refinement of what an amp can be with specs which can make a difference. To think the noise floor is 2dB lower while the power output is nearly double, that is pretty cool.

    No, not really.
    I claim the guys testimonial is utter nonsense. If all conditions were close to right in his system as Flint pointed out my feeling is his gaines in audio quality, however real they might be would be no where near as earth shattering as he describes them. Unless of course he's coming off a 15 year old $129.99 receiver with digital amps.

    Way too often do I hear claimes like this from people with poorly placed speakers in what is essentially an echo chamber.

    Audio Advisor has lots of bullshit testimonials in their advertising. Just look at what some people say about the amazing differences cables make in their catalogs. I don't see how they can print such crap and be able to sleep at night.

    Not that I have a lot of experience with it, but I hear that money makes a great soporific, and that the more you make / have, the greater the effect.

    Those fuckers should be getting 10 hours straight a night!

    It will sell, just not to me. Out of my league for sure.

    I had to lookup the definition of soporific.

    I was going to use it in the melatonin thread but figured it would only put everyone to sleep if I did. Did not wish to single-handedly create the blogging somnambulants' apocalypse.
