Yorkville power amps?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Wounded Paw, Oct 1, 2004.


  1. Am I gonna notice a big difference in using a Yorkville power amp with my upcoming SVP-PRO pre as opposed to say a QSC, Crest or Stewart?
    Anyone using these, I was thinking of the AP2020 model or mebbe 4020.
    It'll be pushing a Berg NV610 (750 watts @ 4 ohms)
     
  2. So I take that to mean nobody out there is using a Yorkville power amp. Oh well. :rolleyes:
     
  3. I can't compare to other bass heads, but I have an XS400 head, which sounds absolutely incredible compared to my previous Yorkville 400B head.

    My tone is finally where I want it :)

    I use the Yorkville A4.4 power amp with a Sansamp RBI preamp. Very nice. Light!. I had a QSC plx3402 in the same rig - I liked it too. Before that I used a PV gps3500 in the rig. Liked that But too heavy.
    I couldn't tell any difference in the sound of the amps.
    Rig works well in that I can take along a single 15 cabinet or 4 of them! Been using the A4.4 for about a year with no problems.
