RobN, I am getting the new black chassis with a neutrik 1/4" jack and the solen stage 1 ugrade on the ppx3. The solen stage 2 requires a bigger chassis than the std mpx3 chassis and I didnt want to go that big. The caps upgrade might change the sound to much so I didnt get that one either. I would have liked to have used this one as a preamp but it has to much gain. The hd300 probably will have to much gain too, but its much cheaper to add the line upgrade, it already has multiple inputs, and I like the idea of an outboard power supply if I use it as a pre. Curiosity is driving this purchase more than anything; I want to hear this amp. I read the claim the hd 300 is better than the ppx3, even if it was one persons opinion, I want to find out. I am thrilled with the ppx3, if the hd 300 is better in my system, then the hd 300 will be one fantastic amp.
