    = Ray Rayfield and I think the post referenced was in the SSQ group. https://www.facebook.com/ray.rayfield

    He's no dummy!

    Edit: maybe not SSQ. Possibly someone has the link.

    That doesn't tell me much about anything that he knows or doesn't know. I can see his education and career information from the linked in profile, but even then, it doesn't make me want to believe everything he says. Plenty of people with fancy titles don't know about how things work, and his formal education also doesn't support his potential knowledge.

    I am also not going to spend the time in here researching Ray Rayfield beyond this. If he wants to join this forum and give us an explanation as to why this statement was made, I'll listen. But currently, this is smelling like snake oil to me to sell more expensive amps instead of cheaper amps that you can bridge to get more power.

    Otherwise, as Justin said, this isn't a thing in a well designed product, could very well be in a poor designed product though.

    He is, after their resurrection in 2009-2010. I do know back in the day on Diyma, he and Linear Power had both fans and detractors. I'm not sure if he's right about this phase issue or not, but an awful lot of people have run bridged amps over the years. You'd think someone would have noticed this issue prior to Ray stating it.

    That doesn't tell me about his technical reasoning behind the statement he made, just that he knows how to run a company. Lots of people that run companies have no clue how their products function on a technical level. Shoot, some managers break things because they don't know how they actually work. They are great at their job though, managing people/company.

    This will be my last comment on this thread unless Ray comes in here and can explain the technical reason behind his statement with data backing it up (or anyone for that matter)

    Otherwise I am calling BS on this one as everything I have seen shows this being a non issue in well designed products.

    I agree with you, his initial assessment doesn't make sense to me.

    ...neither does the price of their equipment

    I wouldn't put too much value in what Ray has to say. He's made a lot of bs claims over the years.
