    thanks for all the responses guys been playing the crap out of it in hopes that it will crap out if its going to.makes the 10's sing as well as the b7w dm7's mk2's I certainly don't have a golden ear but I like the way it sounds effort less power and plenty of volume to fill my large listening room I have tickets to see Black Sabbath in jersey tomorrow and wish t hey were for NEXT wwekend so I can listen to this thing all day tomorrow,Fortunately have off all next week so have plenty of time to mess with it.I got a coupon for 100 what they call emo bux to spend at emotiva good for two years.the preamp is on sale for 389 my coupon would make it 289 thoI don't really need it .I think my dual mono mitsu is a pretty good piece if somewhat overlookedLOL

    earliest pics will be on fri when my son gets home.Still didn't put it in the rack yet.When I get my mitsu back from service I'll have to do some gear shuffling rack space getting tight.BTW Sabbath was GREAT played for near two hours and ozzy sounded great-no auto tune or other bull**** effects I could detect.Been a fan for too many years and can honestly say I've never heard ozzy's voice sound so strong-must of made a deal with the devil LOL

    So, I'm reading a thread on another audio forum where the OP has built some speakers that are a bit rolled off at the top end and he's looking for a bright amp. Emo amps got recommended the most....go figure, LOL

    I'll call a spade a spade whenever and wherever I want to. Don't like it, tough.
