Hi there music-makers, WATTS UP!!!
usually there aren't many stereo recievers that can hack prolonged concert level performance. If your looking to get loud in a room of your home for a while,....prettymuch any non-surround sound stereo reciever, 120wrms x 2@8 ohms, mated to 2 decent size (10 inch or larger) floorstanding towers should do the trick. Hovever,....for a more demanding application,(such as prolonged concert-level reproduction) one needs to seek thicker broth,....such as older, vintage hi-fi gear,...or newer recievers with higher wpc,..or the ability to handle daisy-chained lower impedance loads. I started out with a Denon 75w x 2 avr1000, mated to 2 Klipsch quartets,...and that was really dynamic,..and loud. It seemed to rival my half stack,...but more dynamic,..only with 80% of the raw volume the half-stack produced. I had a fullstack fender M-80,..and that was the shizbat.......but now I have a 1000wrms@4 ohms .007% thd reciever(fan cooled) with a dual 12 band audio source eq,...running split-aux line with a sony 60w x 4 reciever. The big boy is driving 2 15 inch jensen towers,..while the Sony is driving 2 bose 6 inch bookshelf spkrs. This setup is by far the most dynamic,..and insane I've had so far,....and I can bottom out the 15 inch,200w towers at a quarter volume,(loudness button off).....and am waiting to upgrade to Cerwin Vega towers.
SO IF ANYONE SAYS "you need rack gear" or $4,000 tube heads to get that "PRO" sound or "pro" volume,......they are full of codswallup This topic is for those who are fans of stereo gear for their amps,....I'll admit it's not easy to do it this way,....it takes a lot of trial and error,....as well as finesse on the equalization. Peace,..and rock on.[color=violet][/color]
The name says it all! Discuss Steve's studios, your studios and gear set-ups, amps and effects here. This is not for discussing guitars (Steve's or otherwise).
