    Well, I've been messing around with a few amp setups recently, and have had quite a few false starts due to quality problems. Well, I finally have a functioning rig that sounds awesome. I ended up with an Aguilar DB680 into a QSC PLX1602 into an EA CXL-112L. This rig is awesome. There is so much flexibility with this preamp. It is so warm, yet detailed. I love it.

    Sounds way nice.:bassist:

    And you can beat the back-saving from all this lightweight stuff.

    You done great.

    Thanks Jerry and Jae,

    This is one sweet rig. I'm in tonal nirvana.

    woah, almost exactly what I have. I have a DB680, Peavey DPC 1400x and EA CXL-112L. I did have the QSC 1602, but sold it to get the single space Peavey and keep my rack size in check.

    It's a great sounding setup. As you say, fat but detailed.

    We could be brothers in amps :)

    I have the 1602 + the DB 659 with a SansAmp in front for compression and soft clipping.

    It's a sweet, simple, thang without 995 controls.

    "These mist covered mountains...."

    Rickbass, I take exception to your comment - my 680 has only 994 controls:)

    Just having a few controls, like an Ag, is so nice, isn't it???

    As someone said here a long, long, time ago - "If it sounds great to begin with, you don't need a lot of knobs."

    Daytona, you're forgetting the DI out selection switch on the back. Include that, and you've got 995


    I rarely touch the controls, I have the sound I love dialed in. The most I'll do is to maybe switch on the bass boost if I'm going to a more low end shy bass (hello, Aria Pro II SB-1000)
