Title says it all. and why do people like them. the descriptions really sound disgusting to me. seems like you would need an excellent bass in the first place to have a good sound then. all of their eq is voiced towards a scooped sound, which i hate. their speakers have no sound of their own....what a bad concept. celestion vintage 30's arent so sought after because they dont have any sound of their own. iamps will never be 'classics' even if its what they are 'destined' to be. ampeg svt isnt so sought after cause it doesnt have any sound of its own. iamps are solid state anyway, so naturally they wont have the warm and full sound of a tube amp. solid state power sections have got to be the worst.... unless you like white noise. whenever the temperature of a transistor changes, an electron jumps from one side to the other side of the transistor (positive and negative sides), tubes dont have white noise. tube technology is superior to that of solid state, unfortunately not as practical. thats my view of this. what do other people think. this would make a good preamp for eq, dialing in the sound you like, put it before your amp, and it wouldnt change the sound, just eq. that is a good idea, but a full on amp (and speakers with no sound of their own.) bad.
