To make a long story short, what I really want is the new Euphonic iamp 800. But I've been waiting for it to come out since February, and every time the new deadline comes up, they push it back another 8 weeks, and the whole cycle starts over again. If they push it past the new year, my patience will have run out. The best thing I've played through so far is an Eden WT1000. Solid state, plenty o' power, and some nice features. What I'm wondering is, what's the real difference between this and a "regular" dedicated power amp? For the price of the Eden, which puts out about 1000 watts bridged, couldn't I get one of the new QSC PLX series poweramps with about twice the power, or do I have my figures wrong? And if my figures are right, instinct tells me that there must be some difference in sound to make the Eden more attractive to bassists. I mean, I've heard it, and it sounded killer, but I've not had the chance to plug my bass into any "regular" power amps, so I don't know how it would compare. Has anybody had the chance to compare the Eden with a "standard" poweramp? Any reviews from the trenches?
