I'm more familiar with the Shuttle and Streamliner series, not so much this. I have a line on potentially snagging one of these amp heads (as a back-up, mind you), but don't know much/anything about it. One thing I find really weird is that it claims to run 350w @ 8ohms, and yet only 225w @ 4ohms. I would assume this is backwards, but it's on the Genz site, as well as a couple online retailers as well... The controls seems very reminiscent of the Shuttle series Any words of advice at all? I think it is both slightly larger, and a little more expensive than I was hoping to ideally spend. I was not at all looking for this amp, but it's on craigslist now, so I'm thinking about it. Please don't recommend me a GK amp... there is no brand of amplifier that I like less than GK! And that's putting it mildly Again, considering its purpose as mostly unused backup, I am looking for small/light and fairly cheap. Should I hold out for something better than this?
