Yes, the Sure, hifimediy and 41hz offerings with a Meanwell would probably be better than the Dayton, especially with loads under 8 ohms.

BUT....If driving an 8 ohm speaker, the Dayton sounds just about identical to a stock unmodified Sure... which is pretty good indeed.

I have Virtues so I sold my Dayton un-modded without opening it, the case was visibly too small to fit the inout coupling caps I wanted to use, and I did not like the idea of having pigtails attached.

If you're going to do any modding at all, and these amps really deserve to be hot-rodded, then it's time to go shopping for a nice case and roll your own with one of the boards, just as Dr Vega suggests.
