This is an extremely impressive amplifier designed by Nelson Pass using 32 MOSFET (HEXFET) output devices. The amp uses 3 stages of gain vs. the 5 often used by its peers. The amplifier is very smooth, producing good inner detail. It is capable of driving almost any load and delivers stunning dynamic range. I performed several blind comparison with friends owning very high end amplifiers driving B&W 803s and Martin Logan electrostatics. The Adcom performed at a peer level and produced superb results. The only downside is the heat generated as they are biased AB1 towards class A operation.

Fantastic product. Had the pleasure of listening to one with the matching preamp.

Big dynamics and really nice sound. Warm and smooth delivery. The power is awesome at 300 RMS watts per channel! Quite affordable as all Adcom products are.

Just use it in a well ventilated area as it does get warm.
