Looks like a good amp for 30$ ,but it seems to be designed
for commercial sound systems (office/ warehouse PA use)
rather than Hi-Fi.

Still, it is worth more than 30$ in just metal and might
be good for a Bi-amped sytem (sub/satillites).

The output transformer might saturate under load (bass).
You could use it as a yard/outdoor system since
it is an isolated output...

mono...

but an interesting piece, and others are out there pretty cheap.

the thing that makes it interesting is that it uses a transformer in the output...

The basic circuit kinda sucks, but if ur into some DIY ideas, things can get very interesting quickly.

The power transformer and the output are easily worth the money, if you need such things... also if it has an input transformer that is probably worth the bux right there.

If you don't want it, you can just send it to me!
I can use the thing for parts in one way or another!!
