19" is small for me and I'm not comparing with AVR's but with more conventional amps I use to have (with heatshinks,etc).Small footprint? It's bigger than most AVRs, which offer 7 or more channels with probably more power than this amp does.
There are 1U units with 8 channels with more power for about twice the (non sale) price. And there is a 2U 8 channel amp with 50x the power for 50x the price.
While the amp is still nice for the money, especially on the sale price, I wouldn't call it "small footprint". It's a 4U unit and that's massive.
EDIT:I mean small for the 8 channels it includes.
