preamp/poweramp or whole unit

  1. I was wondering, besides the aguilar quality, would there be any reason for me to get the DB750 instead of a DB659 and a poweramp?

    cost?


    a db659 and a carvin DCM1000-2000 would probably squeak out under a K.

    Of course the construction is going to be better than most power amps, and it uses MOSFETS which are more high end than normal transistors. They have better transient response and tone. Componets are top notch. 10 year warranty. Besides that I really can't think of anything else.

    if you're totally sold on your overall sound, but might wanna go with more power for future bigger gigs, then go with the separate setup. but then again, depending on what you're doing, 750 watts @ 4 ohms might be more than enough power for whatever app.

    a preamp like the DB659 will give you more than enough luscious Aguilar tone.
