Summary: First, be aware that even though the listing shows "Tribal UK" as the supplier, my amplifier was shipped by "Hughes Direct", the supplier mentioned in R C Palmer's 1-star review. After reading that review and feedback on other web pages it's unlikely I would have ordered it if I had known about this. Both companies are based in Ipswich or nearby so I wonder whether they are in fact trading names of the same company or closely associated with each other.
Summary: Everything was fine for the first 14 months until my amp blew. Amazon were not interested in doing anything about it and I was left to foot the bill for repair through a Pioneer recommended engineer. I subsequently discovered that Amazon get the equipment from Pioneer without any warranty to keep the cost down. So beware if anything happens 12 months after purchase. The second repair lasted less than 1 month when the amp blew again. Very disappointing.
Summary: I was surprised that after placing my order with Spatial Direct via amazon the amplifier arrived within a few days I must say its the best amplifier Ive ever owned I do like the front panel it hasn't got loads of knobs or flashing light, you are able to control the bass and treble to the level you wish when playing music. The amplifier very quiet when in use. If I could I give this item 10 stars also 10 stars to Spatial Direct for the quick delivery.
Summary: a very good amplifier can connect to all my equipment and sounds great.i can listen on headphonss and my wife through the loud speakers.controls easy an the lights make it easy to see what is on.good value.
Summary: My compact hifi packed in in a big way recently. I finally got around to trying to get it repaired - no joy. So I shopped around and this amplifier came out top EVERY TIME, in terms of value for money. I have two sets of speakers so the extra outlets were important - otherwise I may have opted for the A-109 which is cheaper and probably does an equally swell job. Also, I didn't want a 5.1 amp - we are more about music and less about movies.
Summary: Ordered bank holiday Monday delivered by free p&p Wednesday - beat that. Using with Celestion Ditton 44 monitor speakers with absolutely no detectable background hiss or hum whatsoever. Depending on input this amplifier produces a beautiful neutral sound. This is one of those few occasions where the sound is as good as the published specifications.
