Stay away! I don't have time to go into it, but I concur with the H-C reviews. Mud city!

The few times I have seen this topic raised, the opinions I have seen expressed by others included the following: <BR>1. the company provides awful product support, and may have abandoned the product altogether. <BR>2. the amps very complicated to operate, and prone to reliability problems.<BR>3. the amps don't sound particularly good.<BR>4. the resale value is lousy.<BR>5. there are virtually no dealers because the amps never caught on with consumers.<P>BTW, there were some very negative product reviews of the amps on Harmony Central for a time, but I think they have been removed. I heard the amps at a NAMM show when they were first introduced a few years ago. I thought they sounded ok, but nothing special. Too many negatives, IMHO, to risk buying.
