    Ok, I just realized that I am in over my head as far as buying a new amp.

    Does anyone know of a good resource (website) that provides info about amps?

    For instance: what should i know about ohms and watts?
    what is a pre-amp, power amp, head?
    what are the benefits of having stacks opposed to combos?
    whats a tube amp?
    difference between speakers (neodim, alum, whatever)?
    are diff brands/styles of amps better suited for diff styles of music?
    if i buy something used what should be weary of?
    etc, etc, etc...

    I have been looking through the forum for the past couple of hours and have learned alot, but I saw a lot of differening opinions. Is there a resource out there that explains the facts of amplified sound?

    Thanks for your help
