I owned one a few years ago. Looking back and comparing it to others, think it was the best amplifier I’ve owned. I very much regret selling it. I had it with Wilson Sashas.

A pair in bridged mode looks interesting since distortion doesn't appear to increase.

I'm not really into the tech side of the specs, but it doesn't appear to operate in pure class A mode throughout its full rated power output.

I have the A50V. This is a great amp. I have also A60, A70, A75 and A 100.
All are great, never had one issue with them. And the A50V is now almost 25 years old.
Sonic wise I cannot hear any differences.
Best regards
Martin
