Question regarding Alesis Matica 900
I have an opportunity to purhcase one of these amps. The best information I can find out about them is at this link where they say "Very few professional amplifiers can handle critical reference monitoring in the studio, and still deliver the brute power required to drive a live sound reinforcement system. The Matica 500 and 900 High Speed Wide Bandwidth Dual Channel Power Amplifiers are the first to combine the sonic quality for today's digital recording with the strength and reliability for live sound reinforcement and installations. "
And figures are as follows:
Output Power: 450 W @ 4 ohms and 680 W @ 2 ohms Stereo, 900 W @ 8 ohms and 1350 W @ 4 ohms mono bridged
Frequency Response: 10Hz-80kHz
Slew Rate:: 80 V/µs stereo, 160V/µs bridged mono
THD: 0.009% @ 1kHz
Hum and Noise: 103 dB below rated output, A weighted
Damping Factor: 300:1 @ 8 ohms, 100Hz
Input Sensitivity: 775V RMS for rated output
Input Impedance: 20k ohms balance and unbalanced
CMMR: Better than 40dB
However this could be just a sales pitch. What I wanted to ask was if anyone had any experiences with this amplifier? Were they good? What have you heard about it? Do you believe it would be a good amp in a (semi) audiophile setup or is this professional stuff not suitable?
Your thoughts are welcome.
