Here's a fun idea: Gear Survey. The idea is simple - Post what you have, follow up with thoughts if you want to. The goal is participation.

I thought I'd start with power amps, since there are plenty of passive loudspeakers still in use, and they all need amplification. There's amps you can buy at Parts Express, Banjo Center, Musician's Friend, Sweetie-pie, and the like, and then there's amps you need to know a dealer in order to get -- for instance, I used to hear a lot about Camco (not as much anymore) and I don't think you can buy Powersoft at any of the above outlets, either.

The downside to this idea is that I really ought to go first. I'll betray my newb/"semi-non-pro" (bottom feeder, trunk slammer, hobbyist, local boob, call it what you want) status by saying I have a couple Behringer NU1000DSPs and an EPQ450. Well, at least it's something (in that it's slightly more than nothing). Reliability in the iNukes was questionable early on, but they haven't broken on me yet (for the few tiny gigs I have done with my "big toy stereo" - mostly favors, a couple outdoor parties and one girl-with-guitar, plus plenty of futzing around), and the iNuke DSP interface is dynamite, dead-simple for the basic configurations you'd want to do in processing, though it's not networkable and there aren't any 'frills'. As long as these hold on, these will probably be the last things I upgrade, though for subs I'm thinking of moving to a NU3000DSP for my two Community VBS112, and probably a second one for my RH TRX81/9 mains. (It's not called the Tiny PA for nothing.) Crest Pro-Lite is also on the menu...

Any takers?

Oh Gawd! I'm so very late to the party.

Mains: Powersoft K-series -- they trip GFCIs now and then but generally kick ass. Armonia is pretty decent.
Monitors and small gigs: Powersoft Ottocanali -- this thing is light weight and very flexible. My "power briefcase".
Home hi-fi and speaker testing: QSC PLX II series -- low distortion at all, including very low, power levels.
Retired (because I can't stand the DSP control app): Lab Gruppen PLM10000Q. A fine amplifier though. Anyone wanna buy it?
