One word; POWER!

I bought this amp along with its KC-209 Preamp which performs pretty nice, but I would suggest to get another higher-end pre amp to squeeze the best HiFi, or at least get a separate graphic equalizer because the one built in the pre is not that good for my taste.

When i received it, the light of the power indicator was blown (it is not a LED, its a 12/14v bulb) but it was not much of a challenge to remove it and put back a new one, plus of course a general clean to get it back to business.

Welll this amp is really heavy and if you are the audiophile kind of guy, you know this is a good sign because circuitry and quality transformers are never light, so this baby really pumps amazing power!, and you can use A, B or A+B speakers, but If you really wanna enjoy this little monster then forget about tower speakers like Polk's, Yamaha's and KEF's and target just a couple of old school 15"s, like kenwood, Fisher, Realistic, Advent, Technics, etc. Otherwise a non-hometheather Cerwin Vegas would be my pick as well.

Remember to keep it away from Windows hehehe, and keep in mind proper ventilation, power means heat.
