I had this guy sitting in a closet for the better part of 5 months, only using it as a "test" amp because of portability. My Marantz PM7002 has been acting up, so I threw the SMSL in it's place and WOW. I have it driving a pair of the notoriously power hungry Dahlquist DQ-10s at the moment and it absolutely clobbers the 20x as large and heavy PM7002. I have it on max running as a power amp with a Nexus Engineering Bravura preamp and am seriously considering keeping it as my main setup. Even without the Bravura it was excellent. Only added it for phono and multi input. Why isn't this little beast mentioned more?
