This amp arrived yesterday, late afternoon, bouncing down our driveway with the sheep&cows all standing, watching in awe.. I opened box, did quick scan, and figured would wait until TODAY, to get a full day in and get it hooked up to listen & compare...My Wife knew better..Last night, about 7pm, got the last wire hooked up to my Technics 1200GLD which runs a Ortofon 2M Black cartridge..I fired up the twin tower Polk RTi-A9 speakers, started off with a classic 1970'ish 45rpm record, went to half volume, and heard some of finest notes and music reproduction had heard in quite awhile!!! ..Now, I am a bit oldschool, (was doing this, and playing vinyl many years before Crutchfield was born, ) but had used many amps, turntables, and speakers over the years, but when I called Crutchfield just a few short days ago, to explain what I was running, and to get advice for a new power source, they were SO HELPFUL, and quick with response and advice to my situation, that I did not hesitate, and placed order for this Amp that very morning..I am so glad I had.. I played vinyl ( Have over 10,000 albums&45's) until 9pm, and wife was getting anxious as was missing some tv show called survivor, or something like that...I played ALL genre of music, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's&80's, Classic, Rock, Jazz,Soul & some big-band...Everything I challenged played so well, and with such rich, full sound ! I would recommend this amp to anyone..Price, Performance, & ease of installation is superb..!
Pros: Price is good, function & ease of use/hook-up is great
Cons: I have to replay 10,000 + vinyl records, to "HEAR" them all over again ! ! !
