I just picked up one of these amps from MCM electronics. They are currently on sale for $199.00 and if you use the online coupon code OC24 you'll receive an additional 10% off. You can read more about these amps by searching through the SVS News section and find a review by Mike Knapp under the SVS Reviews section. I believe SVS was selling these at $319.00. These are budget amps no question and some find the fans noisey. I have been playing around with the amp today and don't find the fan bothersome. There is a fix to quiet the fan over at HTT. I think for under two bills delivered they are well worth it. Particularly if your'e on a tight budget and just looking for something decent to drive one or two subs with.
