After a week of 24/7 running I have to say I am very pleased with the INT-25. From an industrial design point-of-view, it is very minimalist, which I prefer. Runs warm, but not hot, so has plenty of ventilation. As for SQ, it has added a significant dose of bass control & depth from my speakers (better damping?). Enough so that for my listening I am no longer considering a sub. In addition, the depth of the sound-field and clarity of the presentation are both improved and recordings that I consider somewhat congested have gained better detail and specificity of both instruments and vocals. Think I'm good amp-wise for some time.

Terrific review Glenn. Amazing how a good amp can bring a good dose of realism to your listening experience. I knew your Canton's had the bass ability in them. Glad the INT-25 unlocked it for you.
