Comments/Description

Very powerful, good sounding amp. Solid build, has been taken on tour without trouble. Simple design, just a on/standby button and volume.

Amp gets very hot.

Does not come with power supply, but the two can be purchased together. However, the bundled adapter does not come with a power cable - it needs one like this, although it can take an AC range from 90-265V, so will work in the US, Europe, China, Australia, etc. with the right cable.

caution:
When plugging in the adapter, be sure the power cable (from the outlet) is unplugged or your power strip is off, otherwise the connection on the amp will spark.

Beware when using amp with low wattage or ohm exciters - the 4Ω DAEX32Q, for example, is easy to fry if you turn the volume past 1/3. (This can get very expensive!)

Matching Equipment

Clark Synthesis TST239

DAEX32Q - 8Ω -can sound very good if volume is kept below 1/2 or so - but be careful!
