Just wondering what made you choose the SST Son of Ampzilla II's? Did you get the opportunity to compare different amplifiers.
Really good quality and value system you have at your home.
A couple of things. Quality of sound of course. The SST name is legendary (is it safe to say that). The reviews of the new amps are certainly excellent. Was looking for more power for the Silk AT's - they're not terribly efficient and the Son Of Ampzilla MKII comes in at 220 watts into 8 ohms, I wanted a balanced amp to pair with my Exogal Comet DAC that uses a balanced output, the amp will fit in my BDI cabinet and while it's "hefty" I can actually lift it (no more 100 pounds amps for this "old" guy - it has a fairly small footprint for an amp with it's power and specs), and in the end I was able to get the amp at a decent price (mine was an unused "back-up" show sample from RMAF). Finally, Walter at Underwood hifi highly recommended the amp. I have to say I really like this amp - best I've had to my ears. And I have had many excellent ones (W4S, LSA Statement, 2 Van Alstines, 2 Odysseys, a Naim, a Modwright, etc. etc.). Of course, this one lists significantly more than most of those at $3500 so it ought to. At any rate, I'm entirely happy with this system and I guess that's all that matters. (I do have a pair of Gallo CL-S 12 subwoofers I've yet to use - plan to integrate those in some day - have just enjoyed the Silks all by themselves).
