I think the Arrow is a great amp at its price point. I really liked it with the Whipmod but that's sold and I need to fund a completely new set up, in which the Arrow won't have a place. Unlike some with seemingly bottomless wallets, I must sell some things to acquire new and for me, the hobby portion (trying new things, comparing, writing impressions/reviews, selling) is as much fun as the listening to the music, and frankly gives me excuse to listen more. I'm sure I'll be trying the 5g Arrow when it comes out too.
Anyway, what Nick is able to do for $279 is really unprecedented. Nothing under $300 even comes close and apparently you have to spend more than double to get better. I guess I'll find out b/c the RXMKIII will probably be part of my next set up.
