    That’s really too bad. Despite my horrible customer service. Seems like they may have grown too fast.

    @msg I couldn’t find anything on the bankruptcy. Any more details?

    I've searched online, including on Monoprice's media page, and there's no mention of any bankruptcy.

    Update - The new replacement arrived today! This makes amp number 4!

    So, to honor @clipdat, the original winner of amp #3, per his recommendation, he has decided to Karma this BNIB beauty! Thanks Drew!

    I won't even bother to open up the box! Still sealed! :smile:

    As before, if you're interested, pick a number between 1-100. Random number generator will determine the winner Saturday night! No Russian intervention guaranteed! :smile:

    For @Viking64, and others, no numbers greater than 100, or less than 1 allowed, no fractional numbers, mathematical constants (such as pi), irrational, or imaginary numbers will be permitted! :smile:

    Happy Karma - Once again! :smile:

    I won't.

    I didn't even consider it knowing their history. BUT, I have some expendable speakers stacked somewhere close by for sure. But the odds of me winning another karma from Dave is against me. But, 1 out of 4 amps MIGHT work. ;)

    You don't tell her you read the manual, and you tell her you know what the problem is, and you fixed it, because that what men do, fix things
    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.

    Attaboy, Doc!

    If you win, you better put on your respirator when you unbox and use it, to avoid the cancerous fumes.
