This is an excellent budget amplifier. I had a NAD 310 before I got the Rotel RA931 MkII, and hands down, this is a better amp. It's well builtand produces a great sound. The sound is crisp and detailed enough if you're on a budget. I've got mine hooked to a Marantz CD5000 and the sound goes through two KEF Cresta 3 Loudspeakers via QED speaker cables and interconnects. I'm extremely pleased with this amp and would recommend to any hi-fi newbie, like myself.
