Oh yeah. It was a 6 week listening test whereby I wore a blindfold all the time I was at home and threw blankets over all four amps so I couldn't tell which one I was plugging cables into. And you know that amp in the middle of my friends living room. He wasn't allowed to look at it for 5 days in order to make sure he couldn't hear the difference. And my pal in Florida, count him out because he's been listening and staring at his A1400-8 for six months.

If I had the money I'd drop some down on this amp right now ... our slow winter months is my 'dream' period, I'll be dreaming!

For anyone interested in more reading on how much power do you need here are a couple of interesting articles.

http://www.live-audio.com/studyhall/watts.html

http://www.crownaudio.com/amp_htm/amp_info/how_much_power.htm

Both authors recommend amps much higher than the power rating of the speakers to eliminate the likelihood of clipping during peaks. One thing I've noticed is that everyone likes to raise the volume on their equipment every once in a while. Me too, as long as I don't hear distortion.
