The PA 16 ELITE got raved about in the November 2017 issue of Widescreen Review Magazine, with the reviewer saying that it definitely has the "chops" to match competitors for any evaluation parameter he can think of.
His conclusion was that the StormAudio gear joins the top of the performance heap, as we know it today. The StormAudio products will be among the few that can be updated to stay current with new audio developments for music or movies. Highly recommended.
