    Hi everyone,

    anybody familiar with this family of products? I know the reptation of the maker, but these amp look very similar to the World serie with a lower noise floor. Is there anything I'm missing? Could they be used in a bass rig?

    thanks

    More money, less power. (For the Reference amps, that is.)

    Somewhat better specs in other areas, but in a bass rig the World series makes a lot more sense. To me, at least. If you have highly discriminating ears, it might suit you better.

    [edit - add details]

    World 2.1 - 450 watts/channel@8 ohms - $839 - 17 lbs.
    Reference 1000 - 200 watts/channel@8 ohms - $869 - 11 lbs.

    Pricing from the first online seller I found who listed both.
