Bottom Line:   
This is an excellent amp for the money. I purchased mine used on Ebay for about $100 and couldn't be happier with the sound quality. I have several amps including a $1200 Crown, NAD, Altec Lansing along with some other relatively expensive high end amplifiers and I consider this to be one my favorites. Other amps that might have good overall sound tend to be a little weak at lower frequencies so I generally have to biamp my speakers to get the sound I'm looking for. This amp on the other hand produces clean powerful bass as well as crystal clear highs and an excellent sound stage all in one package. So I highly recommend this amp, especially considering it's high performance to cost ratio. Definitely one of the best amps in this price range.

Bottom Line:   
This amp sounds great no matter what I play through it. It's connected to MMGs which are 5 ohms and very inefficient, in a mid-size room. It's detailed and clear and won't clip. This is an incredible bargain.

Bottom Line:   
I use this amp to power my Cerwin Vega 12's and provides plenty of power for the money. I thought this amp was just as good as my old Hafler DH-220 in some areas and with less problems than the Hafler. There could be better binding post connections on the back but for $300 who can complain? I havent had any problems with this amp considering the price. If your looking for a decent amp at a decent price to power your speakers give this amp a try. You will need a good preamp to bring out the most of this amp, although some people have had good results without the preamp. I use this amp with the Audiosource Preamp/Tuner 2 and it works really well.

Bottom Line:   
I own two of the Amp 3s (bi-amping) and I couldn't be happier with the product and its sound- this is an amazing upgrade over the Yamaha receiver I was previously using. I have a philosophy about stereo-home theatre equipment; I want to get the best quality sound for the least amount of money. And I think there are amazing bargains out there that nearly rival the "audiophile" gear that one would pay four and five hundred percent more for. I'm sure I could find marginally better amps, but then I would need to upgrade every other component in my system to compliment the upgrade. Can I find exponentially better amps than the Amp 3 that would justify a much greater expenditure? I'm not so sure. But that is the great debate about sound gear...

Bottom Line:   
Wow, this is such a great amplifier for the money. 400 watts in bridged mode! I use it to drive my passive horn subwoofer. My subwoofer is already an extremely efficient speaker, than putting 400 watts on it, it is extremely loud. Because of the Konk shell design of the enclosure, it sounds like a 1,600 watt subwoofer. I'm hoping to upgrade to a Dayton Titanic 12" to put in the box soon. But anyway back to the amp. I am very happy with this purchase. I haven't heard it clipp once yet, and I was almost maxed out on my receiver. I recomend this to any mid-fi system.
