Strength:

Everything.

Weakness:

Nothing

I concur with above review. Expensive, yes. I do wish that this product was more accessable so people can hear what reproduced music is really supposed to sound like. However, the pretenders to the throne (Krell, Levinson, etc.) make amps costing as much or more and will never equal this. This is not hi-fi, this art and science and the universal message of music speaking to your very soul. The essence of every type of music written is conveyed to you through this amplifier. There are no limitations, other than your own. FM Acoustics is a true high end company; they've made their fortune by not compromising their art and never selling out to anyone; the media especially. They have and always will be a threat to the established "church" of this business. They tell the truth, and their products speak it. Manuel Huber and his associates are the lords of the new church. Kill your idols and save yourselves.

Strength:

Powerful with good control of speaker drivers. Low distortion levels and ability to be used continously due to built-in cooling fan.

Weakness:

Staggeringly expensive for even the most ardent of audiophiles. You could buy a good automobile with the asking price.

This must be the "KING" of Power Amplifiers. Simple and compact design. Powerful with superb grip and control of speaker drivers. Music no longer screams at you when played loud but just sings. Tone of string and brass instruments must be heard to be appreciated. You can actually hear the different tones of violins used within the ensemble. Effortless sound is attributed to the very generous power output of more than 400 watts per channel into 8 ohms and biased into Class A. You don't have to play loud to hear what is happening in the music. Details reveal itself in sharp relief. Built-in cooling fan ensures continuous use without thermal shutdown. Components used are of the highest quality and tested and matched to very close tolerances. 10 year guarantee of 99% parts availability. This amplifier has got no obvious character of it's own. It is quite neutral throughout the entire audible frequency range. One thing is for sure the is not a slow amp. Pace, rhythm and timing is first class and the name Naim Audio comes to mind. The emphasis of the design of this amplifier is on perfect phase linearity and stability of driving loudspeaker loads. Your search for the perfect amplifier stops here. But beware; the asking price is hideously expensive to say the least. The manufacturer claims that if one were to use this amplifier for 10 hours a day everyday at an ambient temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, it should last slightly over 30 years. Wow! Isn't that something?
