Yep, I dont know who to recommend anymore. I used to say xforce was ok but I don't trust them anymore.
Everyone is cutting corners somewhere and they few that will do it right don't want to deal with the clientele anymore.
With the immense knowledge of so many members I don't know why y'all don't just write a post about which of these amplifiers is the absolute best. Usually seems like a battle to get someone to say this is the best or worst transistorized amp on the market currently being produced. It would certainly save lots of people from constantly asking about particular amplifiers. I guess since I'm spouting off I I will go ahead and ask myself because I am myself curious. What is the best transistorized amplifier being built today and who is building them? Whether it's a 1, 2, 3, 4 or 12 pill/transistorized amplifier, if the answer is going to be nothing new that's on the market is worth the cost of the case it built in I'd like to know? Are there actually any amplifiers worth anyone's time and money? Are all justJust Junk? If there is a Builder that pumps out a dozen or so amplifier per year that are definitely performers worth someone's time and money who might that be? From asking and reading I wouldn't buy and X-Force, monkey Stomper or Any of the assembly line amplifiers that are out there by the thousands. Everything I read on this site and the WWW only led me to believe they are all junk! Am I correct? Or am I missing something? 73
Older post but it goes in depth as to why the inflated output numbers of solid state amplifiers are posted,, manufactures websites show way inflated output numbers.
I prefer to operate within manufactures specifications of the transistor that are in the amplifier.
LDMOS,, may be the best way to go for future solid state amplifiers.
Few of them are being built, some for 10 thru 160 HF.
around 25 watts in to get 1200 PEP output.
does not require a 50 ohm impedance, works full output into infinite VSWR.
output are way
