Default Which commercial amps still .....

Are there still commercial amp units being built that are full mosfet outputs ?

I looked up older Rotel and Adcom. Not very well rated for the middle lines. Pass Labs still up there for sound quality going all the way back to *gasp* the 90's !

There is selectronic from france that sells an amp call "grand mos" which I think is entirely fet and mosfet. They sell it as kit too I think. They have adds in audioxpress and a website.

cheers

Hafler. I was at Long and Mcquade and got totally schooled on Hafler. I can get 2 x 85 P1500 Diamond series for well in my budget and apparently they are the shizznit. A few others sing its praises as well. I know i am annoying about it but i cant afford to go and drop coin then take the hit a month later on resale if it is not up to snuff. If i buy it i buy it for the life of my new socks

Any comments on these guys ? L and McQuade are not dealers but the sales guy says these blow pretty much all pro amps away SQ. Like a freshly cleaned window he says.

Hi Madmike2,

Make sure you buy NEW from those guys. Do not buy rental stock, refurb, trade in or display stock. I had one poor guy come in with a "show stock R-R". It was show stock all right, but it fell and had a hack job service done. The head mounting plate was bent +++. A real mess. Similar things happen with many items that are not expressly new. Also, display stock has been caught as actually rental stock. And, they tried getting these under warranty many times!!! I'm stupid or what ????

The same can be said for most other retailers, it's just L&M is very active in rentals. Honestly, I have yet to see good work done by a store service shop unless it was sent out. This goes for home audio in spades.

-Chris

Sadly i wont be buying it from them as the only one they have in stock returned is a 7000. Much too big. They are not dealers so i am still waiting to get an e-mail telling me where i am to go to order one. I have it all mapped out in my head i think (the system i want ). Ill buy a DAC from peter daniel. Buy the first amp from wherever they come from. Then ill buy my subs and plate amps ALTHOUGH i am thinking i might just buy the subs then ANOTHER amp to power them. Problem with that is X-over. I am loathe to add something else into the chain I am becoming slowly converted to an audio SNOB. Soon i will be IB and Line array then ill graduate to full range and tubes. Next thing you know, POOF i am going to operas and the ballet
