Apparently a fairly basic lateral mosfet amp - with Hitachi Mosfets
Schematic for Powerblock 44
Not familiar with the Powerblock 22 but it is likely to be approx 250W @ 4R per channel.
The Powerblock 22 is apparently a re-badged C-Audio amp.
C Audio Model CA2 - Speakerplans.com Forums - Page 1
If it is like other Rauch / C-Audio amps it is likely to have a very good sound quality.
I own 5 Rauch amps.........

All I know about Rauch is that it is german for smoke.
I hope they don't, unlike Flame Linear amps. ;-)

The Powerblock amps have zener limiting on the mosfet gates, This helps keep the smoke inside the mosfets. Once the smoke gets out, thats when the problems start!
