    I purchased my JC1's from Safe and Sound and I'm convinced these amps are the best purchase I've ever made. I have other multi channel amps and nothing I've heard comes close to the JC1's. These amps are strong! Incredible mid-range, terrific base and the tweeters sing like never before. Imaging is unreal, though that could also be due to my speaker selection. I put these in a 16wx32Lx10h family room. Sitting 20 feet from the speakers and the music sounds like it's 5 feet away. Phenomenal clarity throughout my listening experience. Sure they are pricey, but this is a lifestyle purchase. You're purchasing excellence and that never gets old.

    I ordered these amps on a Thursday afternoon and they were in my house hooked and playing beautifully in less then 24 hours(Massachucets to N.Y.) The condition of the amps was very good, the price was the best I could find in 6 months of shopping, the sound... AMAZING. I Will be using Safe and Sound again in the future. Highly recommend Safe and Sound and Parasound JC-1's.
