Just got this Meier amp today. In these pics the amp has not yet been removed from its box. There is only a handful of peanuts, and two plastic bubbles--no packing behind, on the sides, or over the top. The volume knob *seems* to not have been jarred, and as an SS amp its probably fine. Still, I'm pretty disappointed at the retarded packing of this item.
I won't be able to give it a go for a couple of weeks, till the rest of my equipment shows up.
