$30 off list price isn't one of the better deals on Sonic, but I think this amp is currently being phased out, so get it while it lasts. And it's CEA certified, so you know you're getting exactly what's on the spec sheet. At 75 watts RMS, it's enough to amp your music as loud as your ears can tolerate, and then louder. It's fairly easy to use with an intuitive design, and is definitely one of the sexiest looking amps out there (and the blue lights look awesome).
The biggest downside is the 1% distortion. But if you're thinking about buying this amp, you're probably relatively new to car audio and would not be able to tell the difference between 1% and .1%
The two stars for durability is because my friend bought one and two of the channels blew. So he returned it for another, and one of the channels blew again. He ended up getting fed up and going with Alpine. But when I inspected his system before the alpine install, I noticed a shoddy ground connection. I'm guessing that is why he blew the amps. But I have never had a problem with mine. It overheated ONCE last summer, because it was mounted vertically, in direct sunlight, and being played for 90 minutes on high volume.
Bottom line: if you install it properly, you will have no problems, and will love this amp. As far as "entry level" amps go, 5 stars!
