Bottom Line:   
Smooth and detailed sound. Easy to listen to for extended periods, but a bit lacking in bass control, and poor soundstaging.

I actually really like this amplifier, despite its weaknesses. I know the bass isn't very taught, and it has a slightly odd, compressed soundstage, but ultimately it is very musical and smooth to listen to, without lacking detail. The result is an amplifier that I want to listen to, with a volume control I always want to turn up rather than down.

I have tried to replace this amp, deisiring better bass control and improved soundstaging, but have found other amps (Technics SUA-900 Mk2, Denon PMA355, Denon PMA 250) harsh is comparison.

The amp is now in an extended (6 mponths) head-to-head with a Pioneer A300R Precision amplifier. I keep switching between the two, trying to decide which to put back on ebay. I feel the Pioneer is winning, but by a very small margin.
