There are, of course, solid-state amplifiers that are also heavy, expensive, and large. I have owned some of them. They can weigh fifty to one hundred pounds, or more. They throw off so much heat they need fans to cool themselves off. They make your electric meter run so fast it careens off your house and races off down the street. But these are not the rule for solid-state amps. They are generally owned by the lunatic-fringe audiophile. There is really not much I have to tell these people that they donít already know. They generally know who they are.
