    I was looking through the latest specials brochure for Venue music (Sydney) and saw these interesting power amps - Peak Audio UL (Ultralight). Looks like an Australian company but don't know if they are made in Australia.

    Their lowest price model was 1000w at $999Aus but the best part is that it weighed in at 11kg !!! Not much more than a QSC PLX. I am very interested. The higher power models go up in price and weight so this is the one I am interested in. They use switch mode power supplies. At last a light weight power amp that even i could afford - they are usually $1700.

    Anyone seen and heard these in the flesh?

  4. peak audio are the folks behind cobranet, which is a digital audio networking protocol. they're pretty technically proficient, in other words. and, yes, they're australian. i'm curious about a lightweight amp from them. i wonder what it sounds like and looks like.
