Different companies use different components. In fact, the same company may use different components in different lines. I suspect all companies have gone through significant changes in components and design over the last 40 years, yet somehow the sonic signatures haven't changed, according to your view. How is that possible?
I never said all AVRs sound the same. I said all properly functioning amplifiers operating within specs will sound the same. And I said advances in DACs mean people are unlikely to hear differences among them either these days. There are lots of ways that an AVR can be set to modify the sound. But, I simply question the notion that an Onkyo is brighter than a Denon or any other such baseline comparison.
btw, aren't you the same quad4.0 who rejected the use of Audyssey room correction in posts at AVS?
