Just saw this posted at the Polk Audio forums and the ubiquity nay all-in-one-ness of it caught my eye. That plus it being relatively cheap :)

It slices! It dices! It chops! It grinds!
Using technology licensed from either Ronco or the Bass-O-Matic, I reckon?

In seriousness, It looks to me like something that would be interesting and fun to put through its paces(?).

Thoughts?

PS I don't know how long it's been around -- so my apologies if it's already been tested here! :rolleyes:[/quote]

90dB SNR with no THD specs, ~80W into 8ohm, and no AirPlay; and I wish the banana plugs looked nicer.

I’d much rather get a Denon X3500H (to be fair, it was ~$1000 originally).
Isn‘t the Denon a totally different animal (7-channel-AV-amp)?

Yep. I don't understand why people compare a small form factor amp to a full size AVR or AMP. I can't fit the Denon on my desk or bookshelf, but i could this.

The real competitors to this I can think of is the Yamaha WXA-50, the Maratz and Denon PMA, etc. All of them are missing useful features (such as room correction), Airplay 2, etc.
