pierreco2's review (This content has been automatically translated from French) " Good!"

Many years that I have the full range of PEAVEY CS 400 800 etc the same time ...

The good:

Has its own brand!

Acute present and pleasant al ear unlike some products of the day ...

A warm and dynamic view!

Finally a real bulldozer this series is very strong despite the age ..


The weight that is not to neglect mobile (an anvil!)

Problem with the components that are rare and mayest, some transistors .. (Dommage!!)

FYI, Keeping old pans for any repairs that are rare in this range.

Finally amp very good quality! Too bad Peavey went to another series more aggressive al ear

piotto's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

- How long have you use it?
3 years (we give it to me, he is 20 years old)
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Robust (all the evidence was Maintains)
Power (held promise )
Manufacturing (good lack Speak-on (too old amp))
Quality of the sound (For his age, he just a little background noise, not too Gnant)
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Noise (ventilation locks when too hot, but even when noisy)
Heater (it heats up quickly anyway)
- How do you report qualitprix?
I do not know the purchase price
- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes, it is everything. He went through all the evidence:
Rain, on FTEs vhicule limiter activated continuously for 2-3 hours, etc..
In short, it took a while even the rain (it n'tait not on course ...)

I recommend!

The CS800 is a great peavey amp
It is strong and delivers a very clear treble and bass péchus.
The power is given to the RV.
I use it with Yorkville PL315 and a Vestax PMC40 table mix.
The result is really good, far more than a generation, for example Yamaha

macdriverz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

I do not have an objective opinion because I was ready in a Cs 800 new generation that I slammed into the hands (DC) without abuse: I was worse than -10 dB.

Fortunately there was a 2 nd 800 Cs more recent.
The big problem with DDT also low power: it ill drive complex loads.

DDT acts apparently as a limiter to avoid sending a signal saturated or manage a signal that does not, or wrong.
