I got a pretty good deal on it at EmoFest. Construction quality and, more importantly, SOUND quality is stellar. Barely fit in the TV stand but it does not run hot at all, even when pushing it. I'm going to raise the glass shelf another inch as soon as I pick up the Oppo BDP-103 that will replace the tank-like Denon BD player. The amp is huge, 9.5" tall, and weighs in at about 100 pounds -- about the same weight as the girlfriend. LOL
It requires nothing less that a TRUE 20 Amp circuit. I wired up four 20 amp circuits and reserved two for amp power -- I was looking at the D-Sonic M2-3500 before going with the XPR-5. I use one for the subs and the other for the components -- TV, DVRs, disc players
The accent lights can be turned completely off. I usually run it with just the status lights ( the 5 blue ones ) with NO accent light or power level LEDs.
