Absolutely love these amps (dream equipment). Incredibly revealing and dead silent. Built like tanks and very good looking on display. Slightly deeper then other amps, but well worth the size and weight. Power is effortless and incredibly smooth an apparent, with biggest gains noted to my system in the bass response, bass depth and control (just more agile yet far smoother then before) and microdynamic detail (exquisite). 25w class A operation is phenomenal, and loop outputs, gain settings, and many trigger settings makes these amps very versatile. While listening music is more clearly defined, and sounds given their own distinct and appreciable space. More then I've ever heard before. I had a 7" speaker offset from my sitting position (10' away from speakers) and as soon as I set these amps up I had to offset the balance 4.5db favoring the more distant speaker in order to even out the sound field. Just incredible how fluid they are. I never had an amp expose that audible difference from my speakers and my room. Not only showcases the power of these amps, but also how revealing they are. I would say the JC1+ have a perceptibly warm tone to them, not over the top, definitely not sterile and absolutely detailed. You'll feel your music as if it has a greater physical volume of sound then ever before with presence! They're incredible. Price is obviously the biggest hurdle, but I'm happy I have them and haven't really looked elsewhere or a second guessed the
Pros: Class A bias, microdetail, bass speed, depth and control. Power!
Cons: Size, weight and price.
