Word on the street is that these are the same amps as the quatrocanalli and duecanalli amplifiers, with a few added control bits.  Odd those wouldn't be used in an install over the T series.

It's a good word, I was thinking the same thing. But their power specs are a little buffed compared to Quatrocanalli for 4ohm load. Could simply be new specs.

Now I'm considering going to the T series for an install.

So I was just running the numbers.

T602 = $4k @6kw (need 2 minimum 2 mains 2 subs)
DNA20K4 = $8k @20kw (can power 2 mains & 4 subs)

So really the better bang for buck is the Danley/Linea amps still. But then you might be considering a the K series.

Guess I'm still saving for a DNA amp ;)

Fair enough. The T-series is nice for small-to-medium sized systems. Might be worth asking a dealer about pricing for an X4 and/or an X8 - there's more grunt to be had there, and pricing might end up competitive with the Danley amp.

Yeah I think that's the point here. The T seems placed to be a happy in-between for people looking to downsize a rack of several heavy amps into a couple U but don't need a million watts of output. For what you're looking at the K and X series are more your speed, and probably priced similarly to the DNA amps.

Just a quick note to say that today I used the T602 to demo a prototype 2x18" cab (4ohm). The client had an amp that we tried, and turned it off again shortly after - it was clipping almost immediately. Theirs was one of these: https://www.gear4music.com/PA-DJ-and-Lighting/ADJ-American-Audio-VLP2500-Power-Amplifier/1MVK
I don't think it was putting out anywhere near the 1KW rating.

Got the T602 out, bridged it, and gave the cabinet some pain.

Sounded great, even when the bass dropped and held as a sine tone for a while, the amp just got on with it, even when registering -6dB of headroom, which is the Powersoft way of saying we got 6dB into clip.

Here's one of the test tracks we used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Po2746MdDY
Which is a lot of fun with something that's flat to below 40Hz.

So yes, I continue to be impressed. The client wanted a set of them, too.

But what will be the pricing difference between the T-series and X4 or an X8? if the tag doubles it then might be questionable price/quality etc.

True, but manufacture presets. supporting the manufacture. etc. and Danley has the best price of the OEM brands.

Don't know why I am just seeing this but wanted to point out that some of the OEM'd Linea amps have manufacturer specific DSP.  Not just settings, different actual DSP than Linea standard amps.  That is one of the price differences for some that are more expensive than others.  Some OEM the entire amp while others have special DSP because the stock DSP cannot do what their speaker systems require.

True, I have come to see that now. db & Martin writes their own software IIRC.
