Note: The two components were tested together, with all measurements taken from the Model 7075 amplifier's speaker outputs.

DOLBY DIGITAL PERFORMANCE

AudioControl's Maestro M2e/Savoy duo produced very impressive power in all tests, with the Savoy generating more watts than expected from such a relatively compact and light amplifier. It met its 150 watts-per-channel spec even with all seven channels driven simultaneously and surpassed it by wide margins in our stereo and five-channel trials.

The Cambridge Audio Azur 640R was a pleasure to measure, as it consistently delivered expected behavior and declined to snap fuses, smoke circuit boards, or require resetting, despite the usual abuse.

DOLBY DIGITAL PERFORMANCE All data were obtained from various test DVDs using 16-bit dithered test signals, which set limits on measured distorting and noise performance. Reference input level is -20 dBFS, and reference output is 1 watt into 8 ohms. Volume setting for reference level was -1.5.

Denon's AVR-4308CI impressed, with very good power results, and virtually perfect noise and linearity performance. Power with stereo channels driven handily bettered Denon's 140 watts spec, and performance with 5 channels driven was only a scant half-dB shy of that mark, at 126 watts.

Meridian's G95 measured excellently in every test. Power was just about spot on its 100-watt spec, though the unit fell a bare 0.8 dB short of this level with all 5 channels driven. True to its high-efficiency Class D nature, the G95 remained at virtually the same temperature (warm, but not hot) whether it was left idling all day, or driven to the verge of clipping for long periods.
