Sunfire-tga-7401.gifHigh Points
• The Sunfire  TGA 7400 puts out more rated power than any seven channel amp I know of, so it can easily handle wide swings in dynamics and even difficult speakers to drive thanks to it's stability into a one Ohm load.
• The new more modern look of Sunfire gear is sure to appeal to a broader audience than the previous simple black box.
• The multitude of connection options and the two different sounding taps for the fronts allow you to customize the sound of this amp to suit your system and tastes.
• The amp runs cool, even under heavy use so it can be easily rack mounted without much concern for heat.

Low Points

• The Sunfire TGA 7400 lacks some of the weight and depth of more expensive amplifiers, but it certainly holds it's own against them and at less than half their price.
• Like almost any seven channel amplifier, connectors can get close, and this can limit or make it difficult to use certain wires.

Conclusion
The new Sunfire TGA 7401 offers improved new looks and plenty of power to spare for home theater or audio reproduction. Thanks to the Tracking Downconverter power supply, it manages to do this with little to almost no heat production making placement of the amplifier a breeze, and not require any breezes. The small size and light weight will certainly save your back while it's clear and open sound will keep your ears happy as well. This is a great amplifier and a bargain at it's price and one you should listen to if you need a new amp to cover a large home theater.
