Which one is the best, and what is the sound different between Swr 750x and SWR SM-500
There should be no sound difference between them only a little more clean headroom on the 750.
Unless you are playing large venues I cannot see the need for anything over 500 watts personally.
The SM-500 is 400 some-odd watts bridged and there is some question about running 4 ohm cabs this way. If you don't need stereo, go with the mono 750.
IME, all of the swr pro series heads sound the same.
the 750 will be a little easier to use eq wise, although not as flexible. Of course, my fave is still the old SM-900.
Of the Pro Series, there is no best, only what works best for you.
To my ears all the SWR amps that I have owned (SM-400, Super Red Head) and played through (350, 550X) all sound pretty similar (I also own an LA8 which absolutely rocks for a practice amp but can't compete in this crowd).
When buying an SWR Pro Series amp you only need to answer three questions for yourself:
1. Stereo or Mono?
2. How many watts?
3. What kind of EQ do you prefer?
That's what I think anyway.
Here's a good place to find more info.
Thanks I go fore the SWR 750x
Lots of power
