    I am thinking of getting one of the two of these, any ideas? I have a 1400 Crest amp that weighs about 30 lbs and goes deep would the 659 go nicely or does it need the power tubes of the 359? Thanks

    Play both you decide. For me, I replaced a QSC 1602 PLX with a Aguilar DB 728. It also beat out a Crown K2 and a Stewart World 2.1. (Although I have to say the Stewart was the best sounding SS amp I played.)

    Those 6550 power tubes make all the diff in tone. i'm not especially crazy bout the 659, but dammit, the 359's are great. just seems that much juicier and glassy.
