Pros: Remarkably flat, accurate, detailed, consistent sound - smooth, not strident - very easy to listen to. "Best in class" in this regard. Remarkably good at low listening levels, such as would be needed with high efficiency speakers.

Cons: Lacks dynamics, emotion.

Will drive any 6-8 ohm load to max. Will drive any 4 ohm load, but get more power if you want a clean max.
