Well I've decided to get an amp. I've pretty much set my mind on a 2x10 combo, seeing that I am a college student living in a dorm and space is at a premium. I really like the SWR Super RedHead and Eden Metro, but both are kind of expensive. I've tried the Ashdown 300W 1x15 combo, and it sounded ok. I got a price quote for the Ashdown 2x10 and all three of these amps were around the same price. Now I've heard all these great things about Carvin, and after reading all the posts here for the last 6 months I'm convinced I would be very pleased with a Carvin RC210 combo. I know it comes down to my personal tastes, but if there is anyone who has the RC210 and has compared it to the SWR, Eden, or Ashdown, could you please tell me how you felt about each amp. Thanks for any help you people might give me.
