This got me really excited.
700W @ 4 ohms - 799$ street.
Was thinking about buying another 1K. This might be fun instead. Perfect for a 112 4 ohm load.
Hopefully it will sound better than it looks, very uninspiring.
Typical for a small manufacturer. If you want some original design elements, it'd drive the cost up considerably. If the company spun the sales ad in such a way...
"pay $799 for functional pedestrian looks, or, pay $1000 for the same amp with exotic looks" which would sell more?
I personnaly think it looks great. Better in fact than their 1K and better than the other 700W offerings on the market right now.
It's got the classic "to the point - no fluff" look of great studio gear.
Looks better to me. The 4 blue lights on the 1k are a bit blinding.
Hey guys, glad you like the new announcement. You are correct in that we have removed some of the cosmetic frills while still maintaining the same great sounding Mike Pope designed preamp.
I also agree that this simplified cosmetic version actually appeals more to me in a lot of ways.
Let me know if you guys have any specific questions and I can get the right answers for you guys.
Is there a pic of the back of the amp available somewhere?
Any changes to the preamp? How is the feel of the amp with low end notes at higher volume settings?
I like it!!
Looks great, a no BS face with all the right dobs and knials.
I can appreciate the no-nonsense approach to this amp. Can't wait to see/hear it next week.
I think it looks great. But I like NAD design too. No bedazzling, all business.
WHats the back panel look like?
Rating at 8 ohm?
Whats the HP jack for?
I don't get impressed by amps and speakers very often, but the Trickfish rigs are absolutely phenomenal. They're miles better than any competitive products.
Check them out!
The presentation looks super-useful - easy to read, lots of calibration to facilitate repeatability. I like it!
Not yet, I will see the physical amp for the first time myself on wednesday at NAMM. Similar to the Bullhead 1K, I believe the differences on the back are... one speakon out instead of 2, no mute or tuner out on the back, no series parallel or ground lift on the FX loop.
Looks much better than the 1k to me.
The preamp is the same, the power amp is different. On the Bullhead 1K we have a Pascal module and on the .5 we have the Ice Power module. The Pascal has some additional capacitors to help with quick response at high volumes and will be a bit smoother when pushed as compared to the ICE. The ICE is a standard power module found in many other amps in this range and is a great power amp and paired awesome with our pre.
