This is my second Jet City amp, clearly I wouldn't have bought a second if I didn't love the first. While I understand that they can't advertise this as pretty much the same things as another popular amp with 800 in the name, it would get you in the blind sound test. It came out exactly as I was hoping it would, looks like I wanted, sounds like I wanted and is a much better value than its brother from another mother... More people need to get on the Jet City train, I even named a foster cat Jet after the amps!
