The amplifier industry reflects the American Economy. There was once a time when the industry had seen better days. As I began sound reinforcement in the 80's and had moved to using the premier amplifiers in the industry, I hardly can believe that I am considering the use of cheap Chinese imitation. The situation is dire, when you can't find a good amplifier at $2000.
Crowns made in USA are over $3000, Lab Grup are over $ 5000, Power Soft , QSC pl over 3000,
All I see is made in China QSCs, Crowns, Peaveys, Behringer, Marathon, Cerwin Vega, Gemini , GLI, Pyle, Audio Pipe, Sound Barrier, Samson , Techical Pro, Pyramid etc etc
Hate those amps and it may be worst in the Semi Conductor Industry, No NTE, ECG, Japanese Toshiba, Hitachi, Sanken, Sanyo made in Mexico Motorolla or NO parts.
It's just a total Chinese take over. Imitation and clones
