    Default The Behemoth has Arrived.

    It appears to be in one piece. Check. Full marks to Claudio for his packing skills.

    It plays music. Check.

    That's a good start.

    I will let it come up to temp playing a CD quietly and make sure there are no nasties whilst I have some lunch. Then I will see what it can do.

    I can tell you one thing though. It is freakin' heavy, the courier needed help getting it out of the van and it was a bit of a struggle to get it out of the box and onto its shelf.

    Nice heat sinks, I guess it could get warm.

    Looks the part. But the big question is..... how does it compare against the Mastersounds?

    Can you monoblock it?

    I have already considered this.

    I don't think so but 350W should more than enough.

    Take a bow Messrs Conrad and Johnson.

    Early days but I think the 350 and I are going to be friends.

    Its a long time since I laughed out loud whilst playing a tune. Forget guitar, Air mellotron is where its at!

    Well it is definitely staying.

    I suspect the Mastersounds will be up for sale shortly.
