I had an EA i-amp 800 ordered from Bass Central (great bunch of guys btw) and they had it sent direct from the factory to my door. I received it on Wednesday, but due to the lack of the required speakon cable I haven't been able to hook it up to my EA CXL 210 cabinet yet. Instead I've been listening to it through my headphones from it's headphone output jack. Well, after about an hour and a half of this I started smelling something funny and then white smoke started pouring from the back of the new skb rack I had it mounted in! I quickly turned off the unit and unplugged it. Needless to say this one's going back to the factory. Hopefully they will replace it and not just try to "check it out" and "repair" it! I just don't think I could trust this one again. I really do want one of these amps, and maybe I'm just being picky, but could any of you trust an amp that nearly caught your house on fire? The burning smell was extremely sickening. I've got nearly every window open and all my fans turned on. Makes me wonder what would have happened if I had it plugged up to my cabinet? I don't mean to rant about this, I truly do love EA's stuff. Perhaps I just got one of the Friday afternoon, gotta throw this together and get home for the weekend model that somebody at the factory assembled too quickly. I don't know? I do know as soon as I write this it's getting boxed back up! Just wondering how the rest of you guys would react after paying almost $1200 for a bass head and the only thing you have to show for it is a pile of smoke? I'm not very happy, but on the upside of it for the hour and a half that it did work it sounded great, even if it was only through headphones! Hey, I'm tryin' to stay optimistic here!
