    I had heard a rumour about Acoustic Image releasing the power amp section from the Focus as a new product at NAMM.

    Can anyone confirm, deny, or further spread this rumour?

    Gas: solstice->AI poweramp->EA Cabs

    600 watt (8 ohm) 4 pound, small, non racked amp for my Bergie HT112 with my Avalon U5 as the pre. That would be sweet.........

    Not to hijack my own thread, but how do you guys like the Bergie stuff for upright? Do you double with it?

    I love it. I double on them and I can't say enough about how great they are. I had a couple of EA VL-208s but I didn't have the right amp for them at the time. They need a lot of power and I had the original iAmp 350. That was a really weak head. I love my Bergies. Who knows, maybe Bergantino will come out with some sort of 8 inch driver cab. I have a hunch he might someday since the market is there.

    Man, I hope the AI poweramp thing pans out into something. I have lot's of preamps and I just need a poweramp that is small, light and powerfull. I love my clarus II.

    My K&K BassMax pickup (thanks, Bob) into my Avalon U5/QSC PLX 1202 into the Bergantino HT112 sounds fantastic. I get compliments all the time.

    The same rig also works great with my fretted and fretless electrics.
