re: SA-103

I have one of these that proves my theory that it's NOT the size .............it's what's inside that counts. I've had some exceptionally sized (aka Yamaha, Sansui and Pioneer) amps/receivers that were monstrous in wattage, but it never seems to get old listening to these smaller amps with a great pair of speakers (sometimes a good EQ as well) and forget what I'm actually listening to, LOL!
I actually quit caring so much about numbers and started listening to music. Wow, what a concept! These aren't expensive and I can afford to experiment with a few and then sell what I find lacking. If I need an amp for the Arena.........I'll be thinking different.

re: SA-103

I have one of these in my line up. They're just a really neat little receiver, which also happen to sound brilliant despite their lower power output.
