Nice one.

If they are killers, do they come with a 'PG' certificate?

Nope just stars!  Wink  There is a nice Cyrus 8a and a Heed Obeliski Si if that rocks your boat!  Smile

RE: Yeah, it's here!

Can't they find a different description to killer. Seems the default adjective and meaningless.

The meaning seems pretty clear, and it's a shade more exciting than "best", which, if you're allergic to poetic license, is about all you'll be left with.

I have to admit it is getting used a lot in the magazines these days, perhaps an alternative suggestion is in order from some one?  Smile

How about "Amps that are slightly better than the other amps on the market"?

Once upon a time it was only Stuff magazine that used the term 'killer' a lot, now it's spreading like the plague!  Smile

Nah, I'm not with the terms of the youth today, and I suppose wicked, brill and fantastic are too obvious.  I will have a power walk and think about it...

RE: Yeah, it's here!

Anything with a plug and power rating that is described as a "killer"....is probably best avoided Smile
