    Fantastic service, delivered exactly as promised next day AM, this amp is superb in every way, it sounds 10 times it’s size (and price), not just out and out volume either it’s detailed and sweet sounding as well, so good I’m already considering the Nova 500 for another system!

    • Richard Audiologica (store manager)
