Default LS3001 Linear Series

Hi, I came a cross an LS3001 Linear Series amp. Rate at 50watt and was wonder if it was a true Linear amp? Do anyone know? The amp sounded pretty clean and nice.

Maybe a Phase Linear, or an Ultra-Linear. Does not sound like a Linear Power number that I know of. There is a 3001 Linear Power, but not the LS in front of the model number.

Not a Linear Power for sure. I have the early ones, and they do not look anything like that. Sorry... But it could be a Phase Linear? Not sure. Haven't seen that one before.

Here are some early ones. I had a first-year Linear Power amp, but sold it last year. Might have a pic of it somewhere. It looks almost identical to the large black Linear Power amp in the pic. These 3 are the oldest ones I have at the moment.

You got some nice old school amp. Do you know anything about G&S design amps? I post about two amp but know one seems to know much about them.

The earliest G&S models ('86) were PPI-built amps and marketed along with Redline speakers. They were about (or exactly?) the same design as the Crutchfield amps at that time. Look at the last pages of the "why are old school amps" thread below for pic's and comments about these.

2601, those are sweet amps a friend still has one. We used to run four 10s off the sub out.

There were a lot of 'Linear xxxxx' and 'xxxxx Linear' amps, some good most not good. I have a newer ultra linear that is huge with 6 outputs a channel, should have it going soon. I saw a new one sell for <100 last year, I paid more for a NIB linear power 1002. They are just cheap China amps, It think they used to be cheap Korean amps back in the day IIRC. Everyone tried to make a buck on the Linear name back then.

Post a photo of what is on the sink in that amp, that will tell more about it
