If you can stand the sound of the cooling fan: the bottom is very testicular, they exhibit the usual MOS-FET "mist" which is much better than the bi-polar bite(glare), they'll easily drive the most difficult loads and of course they put out enough current to arc-weld with(well, almost). I used one in my showroom in Florida to demo speakers with for years(365w peaks into 8 ohms), used a pair to bi-amp my Acoustat Mod III's(back in the 80's), and had one powering the woofers in my home system until 6 years ago(all modded slightly). My son is using the last one I had in his smaller DJ system. The only way you'll ever know if you like it is to hook it up. If it appeals to you: Install an IEC plug, internal power supply wiring, upgraded power cord, gold 5 way binding posts and RCAs and enjoy the music. I've still got a brand new(still in the original wrapper) Hafler DH-203 mod kit(Bailey Mod) to replace the input DC blocking electrolytics(C1). I was the exclusive Hafler dealer in Orlando for a few years, and custom built quite a number for my customers.
