@whitecamaross I’m searching for the best amps <$15k. Wanted to try various types on YG, so far landing on Class AB SS as my favorite. The Ampzillas punch way above their weight.

Power is different depending on where you live and your situation - you can't ascribe differences between filtering vs. regeneration vs. iso transformers without trying them in your own house.
