I'm simply gobstopped by stuff like this. Lessee: the WE 91B sooper-dooper amplifier runs about $16k for 20 W per channel at an astonishing 10% THD! Compare that to the Yamaha A-S501 at 85 W per channel at 0.017% THD. It's not about power in this case, but about the distortion values. I can't find IMD distortion figures for either one of these, but the Yamaha is guaranteed to have much less intermod distortion that the WE 91B. Oh, and it costs about $550.

So, someone needs to explain to me again what's so magical about the WE91B because I simply don't get it.
