I wish I had bought one of those. Didn't need it at the time. It was widely regarded as the best of the pre-built 3116/3118 amps, and did a lot to put SMSL "on the map" for the budget audiophile and DIY communities.Wel, i use it's precestor (at least an older model with similar specs with the TPA3118 chip), the "SA-36A Pro" as mobile utility amp (testing and measuring speakers everywhere, sometimes also outside with high sensitive speakers in the garden) and it does a great job. It's very clean sounding untill the volume dial is +90 open. This looks much like an upgraded version of that old SA-36A Pro. Not fully high quality, but relative cheap and very cheap for what it delivers. The SA-36A Pro was half the price of this one altough...
