"Great value amp."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
I put an 8 here because I have the amp connected to some relatively crappy speakers; the speakers are Infinity bookshelf speakers...net near-field monitors. I'm sure the sound would improve with better speakers. However, it still sounds pretty damn good! The only reason it's not a 10 is that there is noticeable fan noise from this unit. It's not a lot, but you can hear it.
This is a simple amp, without a lot of features. That's fine, that's what it's advertised as. It does have the ability to bridge, which is nice. It also has multiple input connections available. One feature that might be nice is a high-pass.
Ease of Use:
Turn it on, turn it up. Couldn't get much easier.
This thing seems well built, nice solid feel to it. I've only had it for a few weeks and it's in a rack...hopefully it lasts quite a while.
I'm using this as an inexpensive amp for my in-home studio monitors. I've also taken it out to a gig and used it to power some floor wedges. It's got enough power to do several functions like that. For the price, this thing is a great value.
The Wow Factor:
The front face is nice, the retractable buttons are cool. Overall it's a nice looking unit.
When I get some better near-field monitors, that's when this thing will show its true colors in terms of sound quality. If it improves I would give a 10 here. But even if it doesn't improve, this amp is such a great price for the product, it's still a 9.
