There is no doubt that this amplifier represents great value for money. I cannot fault its sound and it seems solidly built. However the packaging was terrible and it is a miracle that the product survived. Two thin cardboard boxes with a small amount of compressed paper packing in between. The parcel arrive flattened and bashed in at the corners. I have photos. Irresponsible service! Also I paid a lot more for TNT Express international shipping to UK; tracking shows that the parcel arrived at my local depot 3-4 days before it was delivered to me. I would not use TNT again. Good amplifier though.
