They throw out a good bit of current.....BUT--Nowhere near as SMOOTH as the Sunfire 300 x 2 though!
Adcom was THE $hit for a while till Sunfire came along... :D

Remember this is the best $400 amp. I've yet to see any Sunfire for that price! 8) I actually replaced my old TFM-42 with a GFA-5800 a long time ago and was quite pleased. But you're right, Sunfire is the best!!! :lol: :lol:
