Sackley, this was the first amp I purchased. It was pretty good for a cheap solid state amp. I thought it sounded better than the Creek OBH-11. It has a very clear and detailed sound, but I found it lacking in the lower regions. It had a definite solid state sound to it and was not very warm sounding. You would not mistake it for a tube amp for sure!
Sackley, Acidtripwow described the sound very well. I like it better than the Wheatfield HA-1, which IMO sounded too warm and lacked frequency extention. The build quality on the outside can feel a little cheap, but inside is very well laid out and neat. There is an RCA output, but I don't think that the Rega changes the sound and the volume knob has no effect on the output. Also, the output is defeatable.
