Bottom Line:   
This amp is better than any amp I have ever listened to. It makes very small, or very large speakers sound amazing. I have run a very difficult speaker foe many amps, the Infinity Kappa 9, original version. They never buckled under this quite reactive, low impeadance load. This amp has more low end grunt than I could have beleived, it is thunderous. This is a well made product, and as an engineer, I am impressed with the design efforts of the three engineers who built this amp.
