I looked at Yamaha pro amps before I bought my QSCs. It was much easier to find used QSC PLX 3402 and 2402 vs. Yamaha P7000S and P3500S pro amps. Just seems to be a less popular brand in the pro amp circles although, generally speaking, I think Yamaha makes good amps. And, I think the P-series Yamahas look nicer than the QSC PLX series.
FWIW, I still have some early 80s M-series consumer type Yamaha power amps that work good and are the most quiet amps SNR-wise I've personally heard.Edited by whoaru99 - 3/19/13 at 5:32pm
