  1. i was looking at getting a carvin DCM2000, i can get it for about $1500 australian, and then just teaming it up with a good pre-amp. has anyone owned or had any experience with this power amp?
    or any opinions on this power amp?
    thanks

    i've got a DCM1000 - and i see no reason why any power amp would be worth more (except the digital amps)


    it's a freaking tank
    it reproduces sound as accurately as i am able to hear
    it's cheap


    do it!

    I've been using a DCM2000 for about a year now wiht my Eden Navigator preamp. Run it pretty hard at times, and it never got hot, never glitched or failed. Built like a tank, but unfortunately is as heavy as one. I'd recommend it unless you are willing to pay more for a QSC PLX series which is one rack space smaller and weighs much less.
