Hi, Yes this amp has been out for at least 7-8 months to my knowledge. I purchased the Aragon Sountstage & the dealer had one on display there. It is a very LARGE amp, needs to be put on a stand on the floor or a very heavy duty rack shelf. The dealer actually offered it to me at near cost because he really had no place to put the big thing. Sorry but I didn't listen to it so I can't comment on sound quality. He said it was basically the 8008 times 5. It has both XLR & RCA inputs for all channels.
