 :thumbs: Very nice Ben!

These will definitely make someone very happy! Cant wait to eventually add another SA103. These are amazing in stereo form, but adding the second and turning them into monoblocks are really special indeed!!!

Kind regards
JP

Sorry, I notice rather belatedly that these are 102's and the one I posted the link of is a 103.

Louis, apart from a facelift and the added circuitry to switch the unit from Class A to AB if no signal received after 20min. The SA103 and SA102 are the same under the bonnet

But you are correct the SA102 Retailed in SA for R129k(last recommended price), the SA103 Retailed for R169k(last recommended price) and the NEW RA-125 will be R225k when it hit local shores in Oct/Nov 2018.

Donít be misled by this 125W Class A. It comfortably outperforms itís owe stablemate P10 200W Class AB. And my biggest surprise ever was a single SA102 outperforming a 400W Parasound Power amp in our shop in CT driving B&W802Dís.

Was actually scary to think a ďsmallĒ powered amp could do that to the load.....
