I use this amp in my main guitar rig in a combination pedalboard.rackmount system based around the Tech21 PSA 1.1 preamp. A lot of processing goes into this amp, zero noise, clean, reproduces what it sees. I run XLR line level into it after the signal is stepped up through a PreaSonus tube instrument preamp. I have zero bad issues with this amp, great value for the money. Studio quality, can hear the fan only when shutting down the rig mains. Problems others have may not be the amp but connection, cables, impedance, ground loop issues. I love it myself, would not hesitate to but ART power amps. Great product!!
