  9. Sorry about the wait, here's the "quick" pictures
     
  10. I know the pics suck but I'm havin tech difficulties..I'm a comp moron
     
  11. can't quite figure out how to make the file smaller..but not so small that you need a mag glass...the images are much larger in my cpu, but when I upload them here they're too big...I don't get it
     
  12. someone asked about the weight...there is no posted weight for this amp,but it does'nt seem to weigh any more than my 600 did and I think that weighed in around 38lbs....I'm a sock,noticed your from Albany NY area...me too

  15. the manual says "your big block was designed so that it will deliver its maximum power(750 watts RMS)@ an impedance of 2Ohmsand can do so without worry of overheating."

    As a big time Boogie fan, I will have to say I am a bit disappointed with this amp. They are marketing it like it's a huge amp, with tons of power, yet it's only rated 150 watts more than the MPulse 600.

    I undestand that it's a different amp, with a different approach than their other stuff, but why make a big fuss about it's power rating, especially when it only puts that out into 2 ohms? I think if they were really going to go for serious power they should have gone for 1000 watts into 4 ohms, at least. How much power does the biggest Ampeg head put out? Don't they have one rated at around 1600? Why couldn't Boogie do that?

    Granted, the amp may sound great, and not many people need that kind of power, but why make such a big deal out of 150 watts?

    Yeah, doesn't make much sense does it? I think Boogie is missing the mark the way they are presenting this amp. Of course, if it sounds good, who cares?

    How does it sound, by the way?

  19. for me it's not even about the power,the 600 was enough but it had a bells and whistles that I never used..the sound is a little different too,the 750 seems to "breathe" more.maybe because of the 4 pre-amp tubes as opposed to the 2 in the 600,I don't know,but it's different.

    I should be getting my m-pulse 600 tomorrow or friday, I'm really excited. Why didn't you like the m-pulse? Was just time for a change? Do you like that overdrive tone better?
