    It's also fairly small -- it should fit on a (sturdy) bookshelf nicely.

    It does, however show the usual signs of chinese manufacturing and lack of qa at the factory.

    Also, while the steel chassis is nicely powder coated black, you can spot where it was hung up while painted because there's no paint in the corner.

    There is no hiss/noise/distortion at any volume level that my ears could detect.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    I had a problem with a blown fuse six months after i received the amp, and they responded quickly kept working with me until the issue was fixed.
