Seriously this is a nice product. No complaints AS OF YET. Our band has played from 12pm to 9pm several times as well as running the sound at parties and the giant fans in this thing don't even let it get remotely warm. I'm not kidding after 8-9 hours of being on I can touch it and the metal casing is still cool to the touch. AND lastly it was only $179.99, how great is that. Along with my mixer this is a nice live set up.

I'm using a Behringer eurorack UB1832FX-PRO as a side note for this review. The sound is quite nice from it. I haven't had a chance to run it "floored" yet as our speakers are only rated to 200watts, but at the loudness I've used it, its pretty loud. Sound quality has more to do with the speakers and mixer than the poweramp, but this one deff. does not hold anything back.
A very intutitive layout. Banana plug outputs are nicer than 1/4" I think. Volume controls are right in front of easy access. I don't have a rack just for music. I have a old computer network relay rack and it fits right in there with my mixer just perfect.
This thing weighs about 40 lbs so I am assuming it'll take SOME abuse. Seeing how poweramps are finicky things, dropping it off a table would probaly be frowned upon. But it seems pretty well built.
