Just a quick review from my end. Current setup is Windows 10 desktop via USB to desktop O2/ODAC, running RCA to the SA-160 and then to Micca MB42X pair on my desk. Man is this amp powerful. The knob is zero at about 7 o'clock, and running 100% volume on my computer, I barely get to 8 o'clock before the Micca's become uncomfortably loud from ~2 ft away. No distortion, hissing, etc. from it so far, but I don't have any bigger/less efficient speakers to test it on. Amp gets lukewarm to the touch as expected, but no overheating issues so far. Be aware that the power brick is HUGE. Remember the size of the Xbox 360 power brick? Yeah, that big. It's no wimpy wall wart. Cables are a bit on the short side, but out of the power brick is a standard AC power cable (like the one running to your PSU) that you could likely replace with a longer one although it is ungrounded. Haven't bothered using the headphone amp, so I can't comment there. Solid, well built, 5 posts and RCA's are tight. Amp is not instant on, nor instant off. In my opinion, it's overall a really good amp, and for the price, you'll have a tough time finding a better T-amp.
