Anybody have experience with SimAudio Celeste W-4070 amp?

I see one locally for sale and well within my budget, just don't know much about them although the online reviews are glowing for the most part.
Yep, my name really is Bob.

    Just spoke with a dealer on a Parasound HCA1500 and while he could not give a direct comparison(did not think he would) he said you can't go wrong with Sim. Decisions, decisions.

    While I haven't heard that specific line I did have the opportunity to listen to their Moon line of monoblocks. They were absolutely fantastic sounding, I remember them being on the warmer side. They were paired with all SimAudio gear (Network player, DAC, Preamp) and some Rockport speakers.

    I believe Esoteric Audio in Phoenix is a dealer of theirs and may be able to offer more comparisons as I haven't heard any Parasound yet.

    So, can anybody confirm it's a common ground amp?
