FWIW, their site lists a 2000 watt peak max amp having output of 240W @ 8 ohms. We can probably infer that this amp's output is more like 120W (probably both channels combined, since it doesn't specify). Keep in mind they also don't specify frequency range or distortion. Realistically you'll probably be lucky to get a relatively clean output of 50W/channel into 8 ohms.

Absolutely horrible amp. First one was DoA. Replacement works, but had so much 60-cycle hum and distortion that it is currently a door stop.

With it's weight I don't think it would even stop a door!! Am surprised Sears s going back to the old phoney ratings that were so popular in the 60's and 70's. Maybe they think the boom box car stereos have ruined eeveryone's ears so now they would not know good sound if they heard it.
In 60's I ran the audio service department at two large high end stores. People drug in their junk from the chain stores and I had to tell them the facts of life....it was not worth the bench cost to find the problem.
I don't have the model number handy but I picked up some beautiful Kenwood twin amps with descrete power supplies. Got them from Vanns. Bought too much from them....they are honest and only carry quality items.
Hypersil transformers came along and allowed Marantz and others to cut the weight of their amps by half without raising noise level or changing a flat freq response. Before that I had one of their monster receivers with built in oscilloscope and superb coponants. It weighed almost 100 lbs. Was my first go for broke solid state quality audio. $1600 in sevenies was a lot of money for something as solid and complex as this was. I still have my shop manual and look at in nostalgia now and then. My brother still has the best of Phase Linear offerings in same catagory and they have survived five daughters cranking them up.
You do get what you pay for in audio....and guns.

The product description looks like it's written by a lazy sixth grader; grammar and punctuation mistakes everywhere...
