    Found this QSC ISA280 at a pawn shop for $100. I asked why it was so cheap and they said because it worked, it just wouldn't shut off. I figured it was worth a shot so I brought it home and opened it up.

    Turns out the rocker switch was just garbage. I went out to Radio Shack, (yes! we still have one!) and picked up a similar toggle switch.

    Popped it in, fired it up, and lo and behold...$5 and 5 minutes of work for a 185wpc MONSTER. The extra power has really helped open up my MTMs in the transients. They state 6 ohms, so who knows what the impedance really is sometimes.

    Anyway, the overhead is quite nice. If I ever receive my Jamo C-109 towers, I think this guy can keep them nicely fed!

    Well, I lost out on the Jamos for...reasons. But it's still never bad to have a big ol' amp.
