Oh we're definitely lunatics. I was looking at a Yamaha MX-1 yesterday and was this close to buying it but the store selling it did not have to means to properly test it for me and I was at least 100 miles from home and I wasn't about to drive all over creation just to get the equipment necessary. So I guess maybe I'm only part lunatic. :D\n\nThe amplifier is rated 200 watts per channel at 8 ohms with 0.008% THD and 320 watts at 2 ohms with 0.09% THD. It weighs 52 pounds (partly due to a base plate that adds to the weight), but it has a hefty pair of EI core transformers and heavy duty heatsinks adorn each side of the enclosure.Waitaminit. A store selling something didn't have the equipment to "properly" test it? If that isn't a red flag I don't know what is.
