Not sure if there are many members who could compare them side by side. The Sunfire 300x2 is very very close to the TFM-75 as far as sonics. And for the nit pickers I'm talking about voltage source off the Sunfire. :) In and by itself the Lightstar is one great sounding amp. Just have no side be side listening to give a true difference report. :-k

They weren't in the same room were they? That might be dangerous to the space-time continuum ;)

Never heard a TFM-75, but the Lightstar & Sunfire are VERY similar.
