    Does anyone have opinons on both of these heads? I've tried the 405 and I love it. Is the sound much different from the 550? Any opinions on the tube vs. solid state front ends?

    ok almost a year old thread, but I saw it!

    I prefer the "hybrid" sound of eden amps. I put a wt300 (hybrid 300w) next to a wt330 (SS 330w) I think the 300 had a "rounder" tone with nice heavy bottom, the 330 was a smidge towards the thinner SS sound. both amps have heavy bottom with great authority at higher volumes.

    I like the greater flexibility with the 3 semi-parametric eq on the 550 vs. the simpler 405 tone controls. eden says they have chose the most popular center freqencies for the simpler eq, but I like to keep my options open. some people are intimidated by alot of knobs, SO WAS I AT FIRST!!:rolleyes: but now I love the eq!!

    the 405 is cheaper than the 550 thats another consideration, about $100 :rolleyes:
