    Noob Power Amp Question.

I don't quite know what they mean are they talking about regular power amps used to power live setups with a mixer & stage monitors? I have one of these from back in the...

    New to rack setup: can I use a stereo power amp for guitar?

    Title says most of it. I bought a POD HD pro x and really love using it, but I want to hear it through my Marshall MG412a rather than headphones.

    Engl power amps

    Hi, I got an Engl E570 preamp that I run through a VHT 2/90/2. Even though it's tight I can't help to think it is somewhat too thin sounding, will it get more brutal lower end if I pair it with an Engl 6L6 power amp? I was thinking the E840/50 or the Engl E850/100, the latter is really...
