Saw this at PE, anyone have one? Thinking this might be a cost-effective option if you don't want/need a plate amp. No reviews yet so I thought I'd toss it out here and see if anyone has any info.

I suspect that it is a new amplifier. I purchased two PE plate amplifiers in the last 14 months and have never seen this model (and I looked at all the PE amps).

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=300-805 - their 240w at the ~$100 sale price appears to be more cost effective than the above 230w amp at ~$220.

It has a lot of nice features you don't have on most of the plate amps. However, unless it's a typo the rated THD is a whipping 1%, which is ten or more times what one would expect.

Thanks for the info.

Re the LED pilot, take a felt tip pen and mark the LED. You might need to let it dry and then reapply. It won't blacken it out but it will substantially dim it. That's a lot easier than trying opent he box and solder a small resistor in series or fitting a a piece of tape etc.

It's not a whipping 1%, I meant it's a whopping 1% wink.gif
