First post after browsing these forums for a year and playing with various ebay and ali inexpensive amps. I must not be an audiophile, because I find even the cheap amps sound quite good. I have a full house, multi-room audio system using Apple Airport Express, feeding small tube pre-amps and class D amps (TDA7498/E, TPA3116D2 (dual and single), TPA3255), driving various speakers from PSB, Paradigm, Energy, etc.

My question is regarding the ICE125ASX2 module setup in BTL to drive a continuous 200w into 8 ohms, to drive my collection of Energy 22's. I could have sworn I searched ebay/ali for a BTL icepower based finished amp to no avail. Then I came across this today:

BTL ICEPOWER Power amplifier HIFI Stereo ICE125ASX2 Digital power amplifier 250W | eBay

Definitely a price jump over my typical sub $100 amps. But I do want to be nice to my vintage Energy speakers

Thoughts? Does this look like a decently constructed amp?

Are there other icepower amps, with similar 200w continuous low distortion specs, around the same price range?

I'm not savvy enough (yet) for a diy build, without some hand holding. Hence why I'm looking for a finished product.

I also came across the following in another post. I reached out to XTZ and they provided a price of $550USD total for shipping their amp to Canada:
