Transistor amp for the 700w ... I think the connection is rich and varied, dual output, enough to put a tuner etc ... there is a serious and acute knob and an equalizer. there is even a sort of octave, which doubles the sound one octave lower. This is mimi, but very gadget that not working (tested with 6cordes, I royally mad).
Gray color design is what I preferred (ie personal) and that's good lol
This is the first time I see ca. No need to grind the equa. The sound is perfect, just the button with serious and acute. have not need the manual, and if not well ... I did not consult view that I did not need. In short, have no need to look for anything at the sound is there.
I tested it with an Ibanez SDGR 506 with EMG 45DC pickup and EMG system EQBs. The amp connected to my Hartke 210XL pregnant 8Ohms in some model shop to finish with a Peavey column, and a JBL sub 4ohms. CA plays as it should, always clean and accurate bass ample farm. Acute are still a bit ... history quibble a bit.
In short it is the sound that is we can not touch a equa, although it works very well and make the correction desired, I grope for a max time to return the same result: there has to disable the equa have not needed.
My style of music is oriented versatility, and this amp is perfect everywhere. Can get all the desired sound have, the sound is right, and damn good coffee. After you have to try to understand. Not need fucking lamps (according to some reviews rocker here and there on the web). Jazzman, I see things in a radically angle of a rocker, and there were grave agreement.
I play with a Yamaha TRB6P II, A Ibanez SDGR 506, an Ibanez SDGR 800. I also use a low-against Electric.
The value for money is explosive, I try tons of amp always quibble, find something about right, but hey, an almost perfect setting, but ... there is good. _
I have not yet, but I will replace my Harkte HA3500 soon by around 700. No other amp does not want me. not even a MarkBass.

joe cool's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
700 watts into 4 Ohms and 500 (not 350?) 8 Ohms
Front: 2 input jacks (high / low).
On the back: 2 Speakon speaker outputs, 1 XLR, 1 loop effect (send-return), 1 input jack (low).
Input + output volume, volume "Contour" (dig the midrange), key "Bright" button "Mute", 2 pots & severe acute, 9-band equalizer (with key in / off), key speaker protection detachable playing the role of compressor overload noise, 1 Octave effect.
Simple. This gives a good sound very quickly, using only two pots serious and acute, but little refinement and boost the sound by switching the equalizer turns out to be very effective. I do not use the button "bright" which adds quite aggressive treble. In contrast, Knob contour is very effective for digging mediums; excellent for slapeurs.
This amp also has an effect octaver makes his job quite well by adding an octave below the note played. Interesting if they have the foot control (optional) to enable or disable this effect.
In general, the sound delivered by this head is fairly round and warm, somewhat in the spirit of an Ampeg (I said in mind ...). Highs are correct, but not this side hi-fi at home or SWR EBS. The sound of my bass is well respected.
And finally, I would say that this amp is VERY powerful. Really. I recommend it to play in big rooms or outdoors. For a small room (coffee, club ...), there is too much!
I play jazz, blues and pop, and it is in the last 2 genres he assures. The sound is really good ... Rock! And yet, I plug in 2 speakers Trace Elliot 2X10 "+ 1X 15" -. Before, I used a head Trace Elliot RAH 250SMX. With Peavey, the sound has nothing to do. It's more powerful, more rounded, warmer, while staying clear and very open. It does not blur as with some less powerful amps, when you push the bass out a sound "muddy". I was even asked once how many lights he Y'avait in this amp!
I play on different brand of bass (Fender, Alembic, Musicman ,...), and all sound like they should sound when plugged into this head. Which is rather reassuring. Even my bass found there.
So it's all good, but I repeat, do not look super fine treble. The amp can provide sufficient but not the ultimate. Peavey is what.
I am very satisfied with this amp. The price / quality ratio is unbeatable for a head delivering as much power. And it's tough.
The only (small) detail that I regret with this amp is the lack of VU meter or LED indicating the level of the input signal (as is the case with Trace Elliot or Ashdown), which helps how far the receiver can collect the gain low. But it really is not prohibitive.
I would do so this election if necessary.
