    I'm leaning heavily towards getting a Crest ST2000 power amp, but have a couple questions:

    1) Is the ST2000 still in current production? It is still listed as a product on the Crest Audio web site, but some of the posts on TB refer to it as being discontinued.

    2) I've heard (but have no way to confirm) that Peavey (which owns Crest Audio) has moved the manufacturing of Crest amps from New Jersey to, I think, Mississippi. My (unfounded) concern is that there could be manufacturing cost cutting measures resulting in less expensive components being used to build the amps. Any thoughts?

    The Crest ST2000 is indeed no longer in production. However, you may be able to find a new one in stock out there in "internet land".
    I did exactly that a while ago and I absolutely love my ST.

    As far as the production of Crest amps, I can't speak to that.
    Good luck!
