Well after much reading and backwards and forwards indecisiveness I took the leap and pushed all the chips forward on a pair of XPA-1s. Should be in good old New Zealand in the next few weeks. To who said Christmas comes but once a year was flat out wrong when your all grown up!
Being the handy joiner I am I'll be knocking up a new house for these bad boys and the rest of the gear, might even put a pic on when all set up. 😁

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new purchase! The XPA-1 amps are amazing as I'm sure you have read from other users on here who have experienced them. Pushing the chips forward makes me believe you might feel like you took a big gamble having a pair of expensive monoblocks shipped halfway across the world! i hope that you are ready for a lot of power and some true class A amplification.
Our friend and fearless leader novisnick is the leader of the secret monoblock society and will most likely welcome you to the club! My experience has been one you've had good monoblocks there is no turning back!
Enjoy the amps and enjoy the music!
