    After a couple days listening to the SST Son of Ampzilla II and comparing back and forth with the Bel Canto it is clear to me that the SON has a nice open top end; it has very detailed high frequencies but lower frequencies seem to be subdued. I...

    An excellent review from 2014. The SOTA at that time did not include Bass-Focus which has added to the bottom end significantly: http://www.soundlabspeakers.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Majestic-845-ETM-May-2014.pdf

    I have not spent much time with it yet with the Maggie's. I did own one in the past and it was a good amp. The Son of Ampzilla II was a co-design between James and EJ. EJ owns the SST company now along with Wyred 4 Sound, Carver and others.

    I loaned a friend (president of our audio club) my AMP 8. I borrowed his SST Son of Ampzilla II to check it out. The thinking was to see if the SON's extra power would be good with my Maggie's. He wanted to see how the T+A would work in his...

    Check on the Cmode module itself, it may indicate the direction of installation. For example, the directionality of the new Alpha V2 IC is indicated on the TAP module with a set of arrows.

    Unfortunately, those prices are extremely out of date, perhaps 2005. Audio Federation is no longer a dealer as they have moved to the SF Bay Area. MSRP is only a suggestion.
