By the way, we do things differently at Cherry Amp! We’re not locked into preconceived notions about labels or features or “just like everybody else”. That’s just not our thing. We may rethink more than we need to, but it’s better to think more than less.
Anyway, the concept of “arbitrary channels“ is not new. You decide what’s best in your particular situation, wiring wise. Typically, the amp outputs in a two channel system are those closest to the speakers they’re driving. We like to keep things simple.
For the record, we haven’t been asked which channel is which regarding the Classic Cherry or MEGAschino (nearly identical externally) before. That’s after more than 12 years in production.
All this goes along with our minimalist approach where applicable. We take things to the extreme INTERNALLY.
