...to me that is. Today is my birthday and as a little birthday present to myself I had just ordered a Carvin R1000. I was originally going to buy the R600, but the R1000 has 400 more watts and is only $80 more. I currently have an Eden D-115T which is only 200 watts at 8 ohms. The amp runs 225 watts a side at 8 ohms. Can I just plug the speaker in one side, or do I have to have 2 speakers plugged in to have it run in bi amped mode? Are there any reliability issues I should know about this amp? From what I hear it seems to be a great amp.
