from my reply on page 1..Ah ok, no not my kind of fun! Thinking of the disco route again, any opinion on Behringer A800?
The A800 is a nice amp but there are several issues to note..
1. it is pretty flat response to about 15khz.. then there is a pronounce lift and gain in the tope end of the treble.. this is a bright top end amp
2. Its noisy with distortion running around 66db.. this should be down at the mid to high 70's ideally...
3. Works best off a balanced input which not alot of amps give on their output.. it's ok with a normal input but balanced is better...
4.. Best used with the Neutik speaker connectors as opposed to the bare wire terminals..
5.. Hard to get a -3db peak input signal into it (0db is nominal.. anything higher is distortion being fed in)
but at £190 .... you can't really expect much at this price...
its an okay poweramp and worth a listen for sure... but make sure it is trialled
Otherwise.. lookout for a Rega Maia or Audiolab 8000P .. both good stereo poweramps
