Open Loop Vs Closed Loop

Open Loop Vs Closed Loop
Can any of you explain to me the "sonic" differences between an open (no feedback) vs. a closed (varing feedback) power amp design. It seem to me that we are somehow compromising between gain and freq. response. If closed loop is better -- which closed loop design is better? The one with the 5k pot or the one with the 25k pot? If open is better can a closed loop design be made open loop by simply removing the speaker tap? Thanks RJH
