for the MC7205

I bought this unauditioned because it was too good of a deal to pass on. Big Mistake. Even at the substantially discounted price I paid, this amp isn't even close to worth it. These guys are living off cool blue lights and cool square transformers, this product stinks, sound is dull and boring and the power switch broke in two weeks!

$2500? Hah! I'd be better off with an $800 pair of Adcoms...

Product Weakness: Sound, quality, warranty.
Product Strengths: Cool blue lights
