Don't have the amplifiers but have two controllers. The key pads are easy to setup and build quality looks decent for the price. I have not finished setting up my system however so I can's speak for sound quality.
I'm considering getting rid of my four Elan Z660's and replace them with two HTD amps because the Elan apparently does not have 12 v trigger. If you try the 1265 please post your opinion, I would definitely be interested to know.
I purchased the Home Theater Direct 12 discrete channel amplifier (MA-1235) back in 2008 to power a 10 speaker, whole house stereo system in 5 rooms. It's been a WONDERFUL piece of equipment and performed flawlessly until a recent lightning storm which caused 3 of the 12 channels to stop working. Since I was only powering 10 speakers, I could have continued to operate with just 10 channels but not 9.
I requested a return order from HTD and received instructions to return it to them. After they received it, they determined that the main board was fried, AND THAT THEY WOULD FIX IT FOR FREE!! This company has my everlasting support as they fixed it OUT OF WARRANTY for FREE.
Don't think twice in buying from this company. They're products are tops and they stand behind what they sell.
Just finished pre-wiring my new house for a Lync 6 HTD system, can't wait to get it installed. There seems to be nothing but positives about HTD on this forum, always great to read continued great reviews!
