Agreed... every First Watt looks the same. Nelson bought a crap load of chassis a few years ago. He will using the same chassis on every First Watt for the foreseeable future ...

Living with two baseboard heaters otherwise known as accuphase a200s, I never think about the heat (and I live in Atlanta). In the winter, I turn the heat down and in the summer, I turn the ac up.

You could probably fry an egg on mine after a long hard session.

I don't worry about heat. The system was playing in the back ground all day today, for hours. I could still hold my hand on the heat sinks, which is what Nelson says is the test if it is getting enough ventilation.

Even lower power than my F6; 15 wpc 8 ohm, 10 wpc 4 ohm. I bet it sounds spectacular!

I was sitting here listening to my ARC and I read your post... had to go hook my First Watt back up (easy speaker cable and power cord switch).

I have an F7, and I agree, it's a very very nice sounding amp. Nelson knows what he's doing.
