Not impressed by looking inside. Fair enough. But I encourage all to listen before passing judgment. Personally I wouldn't care if it was powered by fossilized dog turds if it was the amp that sounded best in my system.
... and what price do you put on getting "off the grid"? Rechargeable lead acid batteries are tops in my book. I wish I could have an outboard lead acid power supply for my Wadia CDP!
Enjoy the Aelph 30 that is one great amp
