Bottom Line:   
Nice sounding amp if you can get it for the right price. YOu can find them everywhere for about $500 so dont get carried away and spend to much. For $500 or more there are much better options in a used amp.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this amp as gap filler whilst I was upgrading my system, it will now be staying. It has masses of power, speed and transparency that, for the price, puts many exclusive brands to shame. Previously I have been using Naim amps (250s and 135s) to power by Naim SBLs. Against these 'legendary' benchmarks the 993 performs extremely well. I don't find it runs hot. It is now powering the three front bass units in my active A/V system. I have now bought a 991 ( The two channel equivalent) to runs the bass units on the 2 rear channels speakers. Treble units are handled by Rotel 981s. The planned Amp upgrade is now on hold as I think I will have to shell out serious cash to better the Rotels.

Bottom Line:   
I bought the 993 to add centre and rear channels to my ATC active system. The amp has done everything asked of it; originally driving Kef 100C & 65DS, it now powers Martin Logan Cinema & Scenarios with similar aplomb. This amp is an absolute bargain and when matched with a Meridian 565 (widely available used for 1000) confidently overwhelms the 1.5 - 2k integrated competition.
