    Yes it is. Actually its better. Mitek is legendary for their bulletproof build quality. MTX amps and subs are virtually indestructible and Xtant is no exception. Id stack up the new line against the old line anyday.

    I think Xtant is every bit as good if not better than they used to be.

    MTX on the other hand might be as if not more durable than years past, the sound quality has taken a HUGE step down. Basically fell right off the ladder. Not to mention they're ugly as piss. Almost as bad as the PPI Penis series.

    i had a new xtant amp and it took a crap in less than 6 months. my oldschool rockford punch 40, 60 and 200 amps are still in my girls car now. my carver amp is in my car and running my sr6500 set after 10 plus years. that is durability and build quality. most of these amps today are cheaply made paperweights. buy quality once and have it forever.

    You mustve gotten a lemon.

    As for MTX's sound quality, I dont see how MTX could be much better! Their signal to noise ratios are routinely in the 120's and they exceed their ratings by half with zero distortion! You cant ask anymore from an amp SQ wise than that.

    Come on mac, you know better than this. Once you start looking at the stats that hardcore, you stopped listening to the amp. Period.

    So- how does it sound?

    Waiting (im)patiently for an update on your opinion of the SR124-DVC.
