Default Whats your take on this amplifier, Sony Xplode XM-ZR604 ?

XM-ZR604 : Xplodô Amplifier : In-Car Entertainment : Sony India

I know not everyone loves sony but still, for the price, isn't that good enough ?

I am desperatley looking for kenwood 8401 but its not available around. And in sub 5K range, no other amplifier is available.

Please suggest if I should consider this or not.

I am trying my best to get Kenwood KAC 8401. Not getting it around :(
Raven is charging too much for it. I do not want to spend more than 5K so even open for a Second hand but still not being able to find any :(
