Default Re: What amps are you using ?

Well, my total list is kind of small right now, but here goes:

Using
PPI 4200AM
PPI 2030M
Xtant 2100B

Not Using
Sanyo PC 2070 (really old, like mid-late eighties, but it still works)

DOA:
Xtant 4180C (for now, I'll be getting it re-furbed as money allows.

Now, for a more impressive lists, here's what my good friend has:

Using:
Blaupunkt BMA5350 (old school 5 channel powerhouse from like 90-92)
PPI 2025AM

Not Using:
PPI 2025AM (yep, another one)
PPI 2030M
PPI 2050AM
PPI 2075AM
Soundstream Reference 405
Sanyo 2025
Sanyo 2030
Orion 2150sx, (not sure on that model number, it's a big 2 channel from like 93-94


DOA:
Blaupunkt BMA5350 (yes, another one)
Soundstream Rerence 405s
The Hott Set Up 4 channel, (not sure on model number)


That doesn't even begin to compare to his list of perfectly good subs, mids, tweets, processors, etc.

And yes, I'm very jealous....

Since this thread has a lot of info on it, if someone runs across an old PPI 2075am or 2150am for sale for a good price, shoot me a pm (preferably black finish to match my other two). I'm looking for one to replace the 2100b Xtant for my sub set-up.

My old Linear Power collection still outperforms 99% of today's amps and will be working long after the industry switches to a 36V system. Why downgrade? Today's amps are not better than those of yesteryear. If anything, my testing here at work has proven that the saying, "they don't make 'em like they used to" is VERY true. Just because it is newer doesn't mean it will perform better or last longer.

Agreed. I still kick myself for selling my old Reference series Sounstream amps. As for longevity, my friend's collection is a testimate to that. The 2030M he has was bought new in 1990 and still works like new.

Old-school rules!
