However, having an equipment maker be this detailed and transparent about their product instills trust, even if I don't comprehend all the particulars.

 And, all should realize that sound quality is Graham's ultimate goal in all his designs.
He does not just use theory or scientific math to prove a system works as intended, he does very critical listening tests in a broadcast studio designed listening room.

I believe that some amplifier designers fix the symptoms rather than the cause. Usually, the cause is a not-so-bright idea.

These 134 pages are a long journey to find and explain these causes. I'm sure it would be an excellent reference to others if edited and appropriately indexed.

I am a bit disappointed by the lack of information on these things in books written by "acclaimed" designers. However, I think I know what their answer would be.
Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...

I ditch my ' music centre'' in 1985 and began the journey of single components so called ''HIFI''. By 1990 something bite me and i sought better and started subscription to many HIFI magazines and began the yearly visit at many dedicated listening room at Audio retail stores. And perhaps that was the biggest mistake and after yearly or very three years change of Amp and CD players and new components , Power supply and DAC .....has not learned until 2015 when I built the Genera and read the Forum. Indeed their is much to make a HIFI SALEMAN ditch his Marketing strategy. My 'Audiophile ' quest began in 2012 when I built 'Genera ' and  2015 the Proprius in the Hifi not rack but behind the speakers.
