Well, a 2008 rev Square Wave XL balanced with blackgates is $1250 and sounds as good as a $2200 Zana Deux (and $1800 Melos SHA Gold), and the SS-1 has 6 SqW boards in it and should sound like a Zana Deux or Melos SHA Gold, so I'd say it's worth $2,200 as I don't see how 6 boards will sound that much better than one balanced board.

like everyone else, you have conveniently ignored the fact that the squarewave has everything on 1 board, where each phase in this amp is on its own board.
Im seriously not a fan of mikhails buisness practices (and I have bought gear from him a couple times), but i would give him credit as a designer to make more than 1 discrete design.
well which will it be? The 2 amps are pretty distinct. The melos has slightly loose and on certain days artificially "impactful" through this looseness bass with a slight softness extending up and through the whole range, where the zana has a tight lock on any sound passing and slightly brittle trebble. care to make another GUESS?
