Definitely a solid amp based on personal experience.  Whether or not it's worthy of your dollars or considered a value is up to you, although $9K for a clean VAC 300.1 is the best I've seen advertised.

If you're used to big SS power, I'd take into consideration whether a single Phi 300.1 can drive your speakers adequately.  One might be enough for simpler pieces, but to drive a tougher load you might require two.  Such is the case with mine which has me re-evaluating my options (but that's half the fun).
