There are many things about which I am not so pragmatic, but this one will not make it for my purposes. Some are content with a 'small amp' but others truly want a 'pocket amp'. There could be some issues in kit building a smaller package also, although the 'tin amp' folks say, "not really". Unless there is a significant difference in AQ with a PA2V2, for example, I have to pass. I can certainly appreciate the design and effort though, and thanks to the OP for exploring it for us.
