for the ST-120 Kit: Wired & Tested

What a great product & experience! Bob is absolutely fantastic from sale to start up! This is the first kit I have ever built! I am an accountant with moderate mechanical ability. Have never soldered anything in my life. Took my time read instructions over and over on a couple parts, contacted Bob here and there (great responsiveness). When complete amp fired right up and sounds great! This amp replaced a jbl urei, and have a bob carver sunfire in my main system. Speakers it's running are B&W 603's can't say enough about the sound, as other folks have said can really pick out/hear the instruments when listening and the warmth. Only negative I want to build another one and my wife wants it moved out of man cave up to main system!

Product Weakness: Wife can clearly hear difference between solid stare which means there is another build in my future.
Product Strengths: Sound, support & build quality!
