Bottom Line:   
The best price to performance ratio I've seen so far, and I had a lot of amplifiers. You won't see this amplifier sell as second hand, most owners keep them because it may be very hard to replace it with a better sounding system and you may be forced to add expensive preamps and monoblocks and still end up with a worst sounding system.

This amplifier is very very fast and neutral, if you have a good source that's what you'll hear, it's transparent, it surprised me every time I've got a new dac or phono preamp. It has a very strong power supply and the array of output devices are providing a very good grip on the woofers of any hard to drive loudspeaker with complex crossovers.

This is a high end amplifier and should be matched with corresponding sources or it will reveal all the problems of the other components.

btw it's fully discrete, a big toroidal transformer with separated windings for each channel, separated discrete rectifiers for each channel which makes it a dual mono amplifier.

Pro: fast, neutral, detailed, very stable

Cons: it's heavy, back hurting, needs a good source
