I've only had it hooked up for a couple of days, but so far I'm very pleased with it. The actual sound quality doesn't seem any different than when I was driving my speakers with my Denon AVR-985S. IMO that is a good thing that the amp doesn't change the sound.
I have noticed that now I don't need to turn the volume up as loud as before. This may just be due to the gain of the amp though. When I calibrated my speakers after hooking up the amp I had to bring the levels down a few dBs too.
My primary reason for buying the amp was because I had to have a tweeter replaced in one of my Studio 60s. I'm fairly certain I was pushing the Denon too hard, so hopefully I won't have this problem again with the LPA-1. I'd suggest just buying it to see what you think. Shipping is free and if you don't like it you can return it for a refund within 30 days.
