    Yes that is one nice, clean looking amp. I'm definitely going to think about it. I can see I'll be counting PL's in my sleep.

    You don't trust the switch on the back of the amp to keep out the DC?

    There is no switch on the back of the amp to keep DC off the Speaker outs, that switch is to filter DC off the INPUT....

    wattsabundant builds some nice ones, AND THEY WORK, saved my K's from a good roasting when I lost an output going full tilt boogie one night, heard a little squeal out of the speaks then .....nothing....it worked as advertised. It did sacrifice a 10.00 relay to the cause....
