Ok - so it is not the HPA. But who wants to lug that thing around? Despite it's modest 125w/ch the BPA's pedigree holds it to a higher standard. I've had it running on Revel towers and McIntosh bookshelf speakers and it just keeps going. If i were to through some fancy words around, I'd call it "dark and detailed" like a good Levinson product should be. But you know why you want it. I have nothing original for it, but you will get a properly pack box and power cord.
