This is my garage amp. It drives a pair of ancient (25 years old) Pinnacle Arctic Series bookshelf speakers and a new Monoprice 8" subwoofer on a shelf below the bench. Input usually comes via Toslink from a Google Chromecast Audio playing Spotify, occasionally from an Android phone via Bluetooth with AptX.
It's a good thing I hardly ever need to change inputs or any other settings, because the selector knob interface is hard to navigate. It's easy to get into a mode without a clear indication of how to get out.
The sound quality is better than anything else I've had in a garage, mostly because the entire input signal path is digital, so there's no interference from electric motors, lights, etc. Sound output levels are plenty without overdriving anything. Clarity is excellent whether I'm playing Coltrane at moderate levels when I'm standing at the bench, or Stevie Ray Vaughn at much higher levels when I'm under the car.
