One thing I noticed right away is they dropped the gain from 32 db (like on the XPA-2) down to 29 db. That's in-line with other amps, and has been a major source of criticism for many.
I wish they'd switch from the LED meter levels to VU meters though. That would make them look a lot better... but looks are secondary, imo.
So, who's ordering one and reporting back to the group?
(I'm sure a lot of people already think it "sucks" and is "entry level"...)
