I just purchased this amp 2 days ago on ebay brand new. Since there are no reviews yet figured I'd give first impressions. I recently had Hegel H300 but found it to "rich" sounding for my taste.Immediately I hear Arcam sounds more neutral. I also hear the amp which is Class A for the first 50 watts noticably clear and musicial..I've heard higher resolution from Bryston seperates but sound is good to very good. I"m breaking it in and will have more insight next week. I use Meridian cd player/Rega TT and Audioquest comet cables.
