      Only in terms of power. Not sound quality. The APA150 should be used exactly as specified by the thread title - as a utility for building and testing speakers. I've had the APA150. More than once in fact. Sold one set, then bought another a few years in this hobby thinking maybe I missed something. I compared it to another, MUCH better but discontinued Class AB, the Amp Three. I also compared it with a ClassDAudio IR2092 amp IIRC. The APA150 just isn't very good for full range listening IMO. BUT it is okay for subs and as a no-fuss backup amp for testing and what have you.

        I have an even smaller smsl desktop amp which does a good 30 watts or more. Great for testing, but I'm thinking of replacing the pot with something with steps for repeatable settings.
