I tried a friends older Italian made CMD 121 P and it sounded good. I bought one on line and soon discovered the newer version was nothing like the older one as the speaker farted out and distorted at play at home level way below gig level. I contacted MarkBass service to see what they could do. They explained they do not have local service centers and I would have to ship my new amp to California for them to examine it and I would be responsible for shipping charges! The seller said they have a B&C speaker and I found out that that MarkBass now uses their own "Yellow Line" speaker which was in my terrible amp. I paid a lot of money to buy a better amp and as time went on I just hated it more. I sold it and took a huge financial hit. Very happy with my Genzler Magellen 800 and Fearless F112 Greenboy cab. I would strongly suggest buy an older used Italian one and not a new one.
