I'm not sure what the issue is here.
It won't sag to 18V when loaded @ 8A... that's what you say it is marked. You may have said, "i specifically pointed it out, that the voltage shouldnt sag" but I'm not sure that is even possible.

I specified 220v Which is common domestic voltage in house. i am right now getting 235v i admit it might sound a bit high but cant be a reason for this high voltage.
yes send it back...
the best advertisement for a good audio design is the number of diy'ers wanting to build it after all the years....never the say so of so called gurus....
