the sabaj a20a is the sister model


similar price, much better build

has some goodies like single balanced in for BTL...

downside is the relability, at least initial, seems to be worse

IMO because the sabaj has no display nor remote (please correct me if wrong), this is a true power amp... you kind of do need a dac preamp ontop

power should be the same as the board should have the same chipset/count

Thanks for the review! Can this amp be turned on in other ways than pushing the 'on' button? E.g. will it turn on when connected to the mains supply, so that one could use a 'smart' power strip? (I don't see a "trigger" input on the back).

This is a good question (just bought the amp to use with a Martin Logan Unison / ARC and will use my subwoofer for bass management). Is the amp always on or does it have an auto detect?
