Strength:

Sound, actual weight, presence, looks and did I already say sound!??? Also the versatility of the amp if you are bi-amping compatible speakers. I have been blessed to hear some of the most ground breaking and pocket book breaking amps around. That being said with hearing Various KRELL, Mark Levinson, Class’e, Bryson, Audio Research, VTL just to name a few and this little amp is unreal! It’s obviously over engineered. What I can’t quite grasp is how they did it for such little money???

Weakness:

I didn’t find it sooner, the deceptive price point of the amp and more realistically no XLR inputs (but this amp is geared at multi-room applications etc so that really doesn’t count. I am hard pressed to find anything wrong with this little monster honestly. If you can grab one or some O would highly recommend getting it or them!

Strength:

Easy set-up. Easy operation, with signal-activated power-up and -down. Sleek looks (for what is commonly an "architectual audio" piece). Excellent technical specs.

Weakness:

Very minor, but the auto-on takes about 4 seconds to engage when it detects a signal. I'd bypass this by using the manual on-off button, but my wife doesn't like pushing too many buttons to listen to music.

Replaced a second-hand 260x3 that had relay problems with the newer 260x3 MKII. This is an awesome piece of audiophile-grade equipment. Running 3 sets of bookshelfs in 3 different rooms (audio only-no HT A-V), the MKII has brought new life to my system. A snap to set-up, this thing is simplicity personified. With all 3 rooms running simultaneously, music is crisp, clear, and tight even at insanely low volume. I would fear running the volume control of my old Denon 435 past the 9 o'clock because I live in a neighborhood with old folks who would surely call the cops thinking I had a live band performing in my house. Although not sure if I'll ever use them, I like having the flexibility of the extra "amp out" jacks for daisy chanining. Even though I enhanced my source signal with a studio-grade graphic eq and a sonic maximizer, the 260x3 is probably the single most valuable piece of gear I own. The cost-to-performance ratio is obscene, even if you have to pay full retail ($450 to $500).
