I have an Odyssey Stratos, and am totally pleased with the price and performance of this amp. This is also the first two channel amp I've owned. I have an Uncle whom is fortunate enough to have a Levinson 333, a Sonic Frontiers Power 2, and an Aragon 2002. I took the Odyssey to his house for a comparison while I had the money back return policy. The first was the Sonic Frontiers Tube AMP. Although tubes have the natural gift of smoothness, the Odyssey compaired in performance quite well. The sound quality, I feel was right there, and although not quite the same sound as the Tubes, this is a very smooth solid state amp. I can't say enough how pleased I am with how this amp performed against a much more expensive and reputable amp.
The next test was the Levinson. The first problem we had was the spades on the speaker cables, they were not big enough for the large binding posts on the Odyssey. We tried to get a good contact, but we were not getting a clean sound from the left speaker. So we decided not to risk damaging the speakers.
The build quality of this amp is top notch. Very sturdy, and practical appearance. I have the optional upgraded capacitor on my unit. There are lots of options available, including mono-blocks.
After our tests, we evaluated the Odyssey as a definite steal at the price, and a solid pleasing performer. I highly recommend an in-home trial. For the money, I think it is hard to beat.
