    Today I noticed there a four DB750 for sale. What's the deal?
    Too big, too heavy? Leaning towards buying an Eden WT 800,

    I am betting on it being weight issues.

    "USA is producing a nation of wimps." :rolleyes: ;)

    No; I can understand some people have back problems.

    Also, different people have different priorities.

    Myself? I'd love to tote a DB750 to every gig.

    [Actually, I'd rather tote a Millennia TD-1 + Crown MA-2402 to every gig -- w/rack case aprx. 80 lbs.]

    So far, I haven't had to deal with stairs very much, so I use a hand truck to very good benefit.

    Just curious, is the Crown Macrotech 2402 still in production?
    There seems to be a problem with availability over here in Europe. Other than that to me it seems a beast of an amp!!

    Looks like they are still around, though rather expensive, even second-hand.

    Do a google; looks like some for sale in the UK.

    I do wish Crown would update them with Speakon connectors and a reasonable 'parallel' mode.

    Girlie-men! The 750 is just too much beef-n-cheese for most people. It's the same as when someone buys a wild animal and eventually figures out they are in way over their head!
  6. I was seriously considering jumping on the DB 750 bandwagon, but then I realized my AG500 does everything I need it to do.

    I like money.

    my dream rig is an epifani ul410 and a db750 and it has been noted somewhere else that these probably weight about the same
  9. I guess I "zoned out" and posted this in another thread, but I'll add it here as well seeing it is relevant:

    On the weight issue I found a final solution... racking the DB750 in an SKB roto-rack (I hate those friggin' things with a passion). Actually it distributes the weight very nicely and is a convenient and well-balanced two-handed load-in or out. That made a enough of a difference that I don't sweat the weight any longer. Recommended.
