Hope this is the right topic. Alan suggested that I start a public thread for this. I'm looking to get a decent reference amp for a home recording setup. I've done a decent amount of research but book learning will only get you so far. Had my heart set on the Hafler P3000 but it just doesn't give me enough power headroom to play around with given the $500 price tag. I don't necessarily need a QSC 3000W beast but I may need to occasionally take the amp out on the road for unseen reasons and the Hafler doesn't seem to have a traveling kind of disposition. And on top of that it seems some big retailers have stopped carrying Hafler altogether during this economic downturn *shrug* I've been considering some lower powered DJ amps but I suppose that's less desirable given the added fan noise and power over quality priority (is this a true assumption?). On the upside they usually have great low end damping power. So I'm hoping you guys can help me separate the wheat from the chaff.
