Do some of you chaps, browse on the ASR forum? 

Today I placed up a thread, asking if anyone has heard a Graham Slee Headphone Amp.

So far this is the response...

One of the certainties of life - some people will always think they know best, even when they don't. Those who are anti-Slee and put down his products must prefer specs to real results. It was a similar story with the AKG K1000 earspeakers. A forward-thinking product that was mocked and ridiculed over the years when it actually takes a massive dump on the majority of the competition. People let their own arrogance betray them.

As a youtube audiophile says on his videos, the only person that needs to like the sound of your hifi is you.

That is not a responsible response... the person did not even listen to the unit.
They only read the "not-inflated" specifications.

Every Graham Slee product is tested on an Audio Precision analyzer to meet or exceed the design specifications stated for that product.

As can be gleaned from the forum name, ASR reduces everything to specifications and measurements. 
It seems the general consensus is that if a gear doesn't measure "well" it cannot sound "good". 

Very often this conclusion is derived without proper listening tests, and this is where things tend to go pear-shaped over there.

I wonder why John Yang (Mr Topping) has such a bee in his bonnet for all things Slee..?

It's obvious he hasn't actually listened to a current model UL which is strange since I'm told they are very popular in China... Wink
