    Rated at 100wpc, a review in HiFi World reported it actually delivers 112wpc into 8 ohms and 182wpc into 4ohms. Great for driving difficult loads.

    It's actually two amplifiers in a single casing, a dual mono construction. It also has high input sensitivity so no problems there.

    However, if you looking for a softly-softly warm-and-fluffy rose-tinted sound, this probably isn't for you. It's not clinical, but it's not forgiving either.

    And Dietrich is a really good guy to deal with.

    The scm 40 does not seem too demanding in terms of power needs. So that wouldn't be a problem. If they make a good fit with the 556 would have to be tried though...

    This appeared a couple of days after I'd committed to another amp or I'd have liked to have tried it with my SCM 40's. I think it's worth a shot, especially at 400 posted....

    I would rate it as very 'current' sounding, analytical, fast, not "warm-and-fluffy" as Graham put it above. Thanks!
