1. Maximum Power

Max Power 8ohm
Max Power 8ohm

Maximum undistorted output of 1KHz sine waveform is applied and measured over 8ohm resistors on both channels. First graph shows oscilloscope screen while second one shows spectral analysis. Amplitude RMS is 18.02v which generates 40.6Watt on 8ohm. This value is significantly lower than the factory specification.

2. Frequency Response

EQ Direct
EQ Direct Zoom

Frequency response in Direct mode is flat within 0.2dB which is satisfactory. Second graph is zoomed version for a better view.

EQ Direct Loudness

First graph shows Bass and Treble while second one shows Loudness frequency characterystic.

Channels Difference

This graph shows Left and Right channel imbalance at 50% Volume level. Difference is approx 0.5 dB which is satisfactory.

3. Residual Noise

Residual Noise 0%
Residual Noise 100%

These two graphs show residual noise for 0% and 100% Volume position. Noise levels in the lower part of the spectra are significant.

4. Total Harmonic Distorsion

THD 1W 8ohm
THD 20W 8ohm

THD graphs for 1W and 20W on 8ohm are shown here.

THD 1W 8ohm
THD 20W 8ohm

THD vs Voltage (1 kHz on 8ohm) and THD vs Frequency (1W on 8ohm) are shown respectively.
