No doubt its one of the best solid state amps available at any price. The chassis alone cost almost $2500. Magnus is built in the USA by Canary Audio. Most products are sold overseas. I am hoping to sell more in the states if this economy ever improves. I have sold these to experienced, serious audiophiles with positive results. After selling several Canary products to Wayne Zufall(Enjoy the Music)he expressed interest in the Magnus which he later reviewed.
A couple of my customers replaced their more expensive amps with the Magnus. The smaller MA200 is also a fine sounding amp and reasonably priced at $4995

I dont think it comes as monoblock.
But why; it has more than enough power and is dead quiet through the speakers.
Fine as my Lamm 1.2 refs are, the Magnus Ma-300 envolves you more into the details and have even better controll over the music; i really cant say i have heard any better; knowing many top amps from ML, Krell, Lamm, Burmester, Dartzel +

2. Eventhough I'm a body builder and in good physical condition, it's a 2 men job in moving amps > 125#. If it's a barbell, I can lift 300#+ :-)
3. I have a large room and with monos, I can run shorter SCs
I am a happy MA-300 owner. One of the big blue Mallory caps went out, and I had the cap board replaced with the new MA-500 board. WOW! Completely different amp on a higher plane. I am shocked how much better it is. Blows away my old Burmester 911 MK3. I believe Porselen had this mod done also. Mine, in 2 weeks thus far, has been great.
