The reason I only paid 140 dollars for it, was because I was able to find this unit, factory packed with a full manufacture's warrenty, as a factory "B" stock unit (a scratch and dent, although, i still havent seen what they saw to make it that) Im planning on buying another one to power my rack mount CD player, I like it that well. The Biggest downfall, if your not running stereo, this isnt the power amp for you, as it does not bridge channels over to mono outs.
Model Year: 2002
Price: $140.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Swarthmore Music, Pennsylvania
85 x 2 @ 4 ohms, .03% THD, 103dB S/N, 83dB Crosstalk, 20Hz - 50 kHz frequency response. Bipolar circuit that continuously keeps DC output during idling at or near 0 volts (keeping speakers at their '0' point) to minimize heat overload problems. Protection Relay circuit that prevents thumps when powering on or off. High Current output power transistors that provide power to spare. Front panel Clip, Idle, and Protection LED's to keep you informed at a glance to the status of the amp. Independant left and right channel controles with 41 position detents. Balanced 1/4" input connector, Unbalanced RCA inputs. 1/4" & push spring (speaker wire) output connections. 19" Rack mount unit.
Sound Quality:
Unit is extremely clean at all volume levels playing with effected distortion, and very mildly effected clean tones. Playing with a Jackson guitar (Dimarzio pickup) and Digitech RP-10 effects/preamp.
Ease of Use:
All you gotta do is plug it in, turn it on, and set the volume .. lol .. easy to me ....
Absolutely no problems at all playing live with it thus far.
