    Anyone out there running this setup? And how do you like it?
     
  2. From what I've read, how could anybody not like it? Honest. Sounds great to me.

    I used to run this setup into 2 Bagend 15's... truly a great, very clear, very powerful, clean punchy sound.

    I sold it because i prefer a fatter, warmer tone. The demeter is so clean and transparent it can sound a little bright for my taste - and the Stewart is not the least bit mellow. What made it really bad was the lack of real low end put out by the BE cabs. I was a midrange monster!

    JokerNY plays a demeter pre into a stewart into an aguilar cab (or is it a berg now?) and just raves about it...

    the demeter pre definitely has a SOUND - and i personally wouldn't call it warm, but it truly is an amazing piece of gear.

    That's funny you said that because everyone is telling me if I do run withthis setup use bergs or epifini cabs.:confused:

    Oh I definitely would suggest you NOT run it with BE cabs - to my ears it was just way too much mids and not enough true sound.

    I think the Bergs would sound amazing with a Dem/Stew combination. Especially the 322...
     
  6. I run The Dem/Stewart 2.1 thru an Epifani 3x10 and love it. It is very CLEAN if that's what you like and I can understand those who would like a 'warmer' sound.
