Bottom Line:   
A beautiful flexible amp, rated 100w but sounds much more
powerful, 35 amps peak power, compact unique design which I
like very much, silver capsule shape is very eye catching.

Now the sound which departs from the traditional MF sound
which has been on the warm side of nuetral. This amp is capable of very detailed nuetral presentation. Use proper
cables and you will get all the subtle details and deep
wide sound stage. Vocals are very natural with great extension, bass is tight and deep, treble is liquid and
extended. Power supply is remote in its own box which
contributes to clean sound.

Bi-amping couldn't be easier thanks to mono/stereo button
which allows you to operate MF X-AS100 as monoblock amp.
This amp is perfect partner for MF X-P100 preamp which
shares same design and great sound. Price is right also
as Audio Advisor is selling for $995. Recent rating of
MF nu-vista amp as Stereophile Class A amp shows MF is
entering the top ranks of audiophile gear, not just value
for the money. Strongest recommendation for amp at this
price range. My system:

Musical Fidelity X-Ray cd player
0.5m SilverAudio Hyacinth
Musical Fidelity X-P100 preamp
0.5m SilverAudio Hyacinth
Musical Fidelity X-AS100 amp x 2 (bi-amped)
6ft AudioQuest Argent speaker cables
PSB Silver-i speakers

Also: Shunyata Powersnakes AC cords (these are great!)
