    Hi

    As the KSA 50 and the KSA 100 have a identical circuit (the voltage gain stage is equal ) and the only difference , is the number of output devices ,2 pairs for channel for the 50 and 4 pairs for the 100.
    So , I expect ,that the 50 will have better sound quality, because the output stage will be faster... :MILD:

    I agree with Tube Dude, I used to own a KSA 100S and still own a KSA 50S (I know not exactly the same as yours).

    The KSA 100S is a great amp, more than enough power for most applications, with a very dynamic powerfull presentation, the KSA 50S is so much sweeter, with a better soundstage. IMO it is the nearest SS amp I have heard to a good Valve Amp.

    However, the KSA 50S is not as 'good' as something like the Audio Research VT150's.
