So, what amp built today is built better than this one? NONE. That's right. None. This is a Top Hat Emplexador 50 from 2005, wired by a master builder. Give it up for Brian at Top Hat, and the guys who build for him. Admit that the build quality of this amp KILLS and DESTROYS all lesser, inferior, flavor-of-the-month weenie amps. It's okay. The truth is what it is.... Just my opinion, of course. Not trying to pick a fight or anything. Top Hat deserves more props than they get, IMHO, as not everyone looks underneath the hood of "that amp".
