IIRC ASR doesn't "listen" to anything critically but rather goes on measurements only. Measuring a dipole speaker "in-room" is not an easy thing to do and it's fraught with all kinds of variables (speaker positioning, room size and shape, etc.). ARC also tends to pan the Schiit Audio DAC's that are pretty well regarded for their "sound", and we all know that Mike Moffat and Jason Stoddard (Schiit Audio principals) know a thing or two about designing digital and analog circuits (respectively), so I tend to not put a lot of stock in ASR's "conclusions" about audio gear.
