Product Review

I bought this to replace a Samson 240, a nice sounding amp, but they have a protection circuit issue, that drove me mad. This little gem has an audiophile quality to it. It sounds great, you hear stuff you didn't hear before. A delight!

Not quite what I needed.

Product Review

Needed speaker output jacks to be 1/4 inch as well as the input jacks. Thought it would have more power but very quiet that part of the amp is awesome.

Clean and just enough power for a project studio!

Your general opinion of this product.

I didn't a 1,000+ watt amp... This quite a surprise when I received it. Clean and powerful. It almost seems as though I HAVE twice the power!


Quite easy. My only grudge was that I wish Channel 1/2 were labeled as right/left... it would make the wiring just a tad clearer.

It's just an amp... You get two volume (Output) knobs... what else do you need in a studio?

Good Power Amp

Well constructed, knobs are solid and they recess so as not to accidently bump them and get them out of whack. I can't comment on dependability because I've only had it for a few days.

Rack mountable in a Short Effects rack but it's a tight squeeze. The recessed knobs are nice. I wish it had 1/4 output jacks but the binding posts are OK. The blue power light, green signal lamps and clip lamps are all nice features.

yes it is very easy to use this amp. Plug it in to power, plug in your line-in's and connect the line-outs to your speakers. On/Off and Volume for each channel. Nothing to it.

It does not rob you of your tone. I'm using this with a Digitech GSP 1101 and the amp models sound great. I've gotten sounds out of my guitars that I did not know they were capable of. I like using this better than using my Marshall Combo Tube amp and my Traynor combo tube amp.
