UgHH! I am only half serious. That does make it challenging to folks that have entered the audio world through vintage pieces (it was 5 preamplifiers and 3 amplifiers before I got to the McIntosh units that I have now). STILL -- I understand that everything has to move on and it is hard to compare testing done 30 years ago to testing done last month. Please don't take my frustration as too terribly serious. I am always trying to learn the things that I do not know.
