    I just got this amp I bought on ebay, but I really don't have a use for it. I guess I thought it would be cool to play into a power amp without a preamp, but I realize that It is better for a stereo application. Should I sell it, or keep it???
     
  2. Keep it!! I regret anything I sold that was made by Mesa. And you can always use for heating, when it gets cold.

    I hooked it up to my home stereo and it sounded great. I already have an Arcam P-25 (125 WPC) that is hard to beat. What the #E!! am I supposed to do with it???

    This is something I've been thinking about very hard as well. I've got one that I'm just not using, and even though it's the best power amp I have ever heard, ultimately it's just collecting dust. I'm thinking this about alot of my Mesa gear. Hmm.

    Are you only running one cab? I use it with two to get both sides pumping. And yes, it's awesome in home stereos as well.

    True, it is the most tame of the bunch, but it's got such a sweet musicality that I dig. It will probably end up on the chopping block for me though; the Strat 500 is doing a fine job with one less rack space!
