I will be buying a power amp very shortly. I am not concerned with price or weight as much as I am with sound quality. Right now I am looking at the Crown K1 and the Crest CA-6. I was going to get an Aguilar DB728 but they were discontinued and now I have a hard time finding them Here is the gear I already have and will be using Musicman StingRay bass Ampeg SVP-CL preamp Mesa/Boogie road ready 4x10 cabinet 8Ω Im leaning towards the Crown K1 right now but if theres someone whos compared it with other amps such as a Crest CA, let me know which sounds better. According to specifications, the Crown K1 has a better damping factor.
