Mono, solid state, A/B power operation, uniquely designed and hand assembled using the finest parts available.
Hard wired for sonic purity and reliability.
The Pulse mono's relevant specifications are;
Input impedance 100k ohm, overall gain 27dB
Power consumption 5 watts, they are meant to be left on always
Buffered output for subwoofer or daisy chaining 
17"L x 6"W x 4.5"H center section 4"x4", ~16 pounds each
Max power 100 watts
Specifications can easily be manipulated and do not indicate the sound quality so as a rule are meaningless.
My saying is "specifications are not worth the paper they are written on."

Meaningful information about the Pulse amplifier is as follows.
Chassis is used as the heat sink so overheating the amplifier is impossible under normal operating conditions if used indoors in a comfortable room.
We have never tried to put them in the sun outside (I live in the desert where temperatures in the 100+ degrees are common in summer) and blast music to their clipping point so I do not know what would happen under those conditions. 
Paralled transformers to lower overall impedance. Quad schotkey diode rectifiers per mono, which means there is a total of 16 diodes droping the impedance significantly.
Plug the Pulse mono straight into wall outlet as they have there own filtering and surge supression. Using two gas discharge tubes for surge protection and 12 gauge copper foil inductors along with MKP capacitors to remove hash noise via the AC PI filtering.
Mundorf M-Lytic capacitors (4 total) and Mundorf 12 gauge copper foil inductors make up the DC PI filtering for removing further noise from the DC power supply along with very special bypass capacitors.
Output Devices 4281 and 4302. O wire 8 gauge copper.
