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

ENGL E820/20 Tube Poweramp
Everything has been said.


Ben volume and channel presence. Knob of the real progressive and precise. I have not seen the manual I had OCCAZ.

RAS on this point.


2x20watt ... If mavai di rang her like her ^ ^.
I use a Les Paul with Dimarzio Mount, a v-amp and a 2x12 with V30. I play mostly metal, alone and in groups.
Before I used the Poweramp a peavey studio 112 ... The shock!

The engl gives life to the v-amp, the sound is good monstruesement. In addition, the presence of -15 dB switch in between can be quickly saturate the power stage. So by repeating I just put myself a 5 / 10.
The presence of knob can really expand the sound pallete.

Sounds clearly doing well, enough slamming. Not very flattering, but right. At the limit we do not care, no one buys for its clear ENGL ^ ^

In saturation, the cot right engl makes her very precise, even with fairly extreme settings. I feel like its a "living".
As said, the sound is "a good place" (rah hard to express themselves with words). each note along well. It became a real pleasure to play ^ ^

When a power ... No need to buy a marshall 150w valstate ... 2x20W it's really not bad.


I've had two weeks. I got a 400 on ebay. C Even if a bit expensive, I regret not absolumen. It's built like tank. The unit must be 10 years, she has some superficial scratches on top. I will give him another 20 years to live so it exudes solidity.

It is the only Poweramp that jai essay. I've heard quite a few times a Peavey 50/50, but not enough to compare.
Less than a mesa, but different. In my opinion better than a marshall. It is simply not found, I was lucky and I let go ^ ^

ENGL E820/20 Tube Poweramp
Stereo power amp lamps: 3x12AX7 4xEL84 and 2U.
CONTRL prsence volume and for each channel, 2 inputs, 2 outputs (8 and 16 ohms) per channel, requiring a cooling fan.
2 large front grips to carry the Poweramp of around 8-9 kilos.


The amp is very well screwed on the whole, when compared to the other two in Boogie 2X20 W and Marshall.
Note from both the competitors prsence a gain switch, which lowers the level of -15 dB, and especially the prsence a standby channel. Another advantage ngligeable: good progressiv of knobs, especially in volume.


The madness, simply!!
This Poweramp delight mtalleux, even if it sounds as hell in the other registers.
I had fun for an hour to compare with my other power amp.
Raliss tests with a Vigier Excalibur (its clear) Lag and the Beast (in saturated), studio Pramp Mesa, Mesa 20/20 and Poweramp ENGL 2x20, all out of a 1x12 "Mesa / Boogie.
In his clear, ringing ENGL trs law and crystalline, with a dynamic standard, but a little drier than the Mesa, which is more rotund, more friendly.
By distortion in the things we go against srieuses.
The Mesa has a lower and lower mdium impressive, with a dark characters, but relatively mild, the sound is not aggressive ear. For the large mtal we feel that it lacks a little something.
The sound of ENGL are clearly geared up mdium, also with good bass but still less lgrement brands on the Mesa 20/20. This gives a much more wild and ct rpeux, while sounding a little more prcis. And friends for heavy, thrash and Co is much more comfortable than its competitor.
Note that the SETTING THE prsence dcuple palette of sounds and is super efficient, even if we take care not to push too much, because the sound quickly becomes shrill.
The combination of MESA and Pramp Poweramp ENGL is exceptional, each brings its color, I end up with a sound "intermdiaire" both dark and aggressive, this mix is ​​simply outstanding
On the same power it, like the Mesa and Marshall, Watts has sent are the same STRID !!!!! The switch allows for gain-15dB input, which allows to saturate the Tagus power MODR volume.


In the end if we were to take stock:
- Trs robust amp
- Trs grips transport practices
- Options not present in the competition (one standby channel, gain switch)
- Imposing and silent fan
- A sound and trs trs prcis good quality for the IDAL mtal

The -:
- Bouffe 2U space
- A little heavier than the Mesa and Marshall

But it is my opinion the perfect choice to amplify a pramp Engl, while respecting the
grain of the brand. It also marries well with other pramps, at least for test Mesa, Marshall and Engl in Poweramp 2x20W (I know there is none other), it is most convincing in Register mtal, while remaining clear and in good trs crunch.

ENGL E820/20 Tube Poweramp
All-tube power amp (4 EL84 and 3 12AX7 for me in tesla and EL84 Sovtek 12AX7 LPS) stereo
2 input (left / right) .2 send (left / right) into 8 or 16 ohms which is 4 eh eh!
adjustable volume switch and gain prsence indpendant handy


Using it is simple you can not do heat 5 min (see above) and send you the pure
it is really easy to find the sound. the legalization simple and effective out its share of job
There's really no need for manual beubeu be less !!!!!!! oops ..


The stamp hoarse wild bb ideal for heavy or mtal without being too little excesif.mais is easily big blues or rock. Jazz for the countrie's not his field too
I play with one up to esp 81 / 81 for the top solo
The sound is very pure and dynamic Presc (which is a unique for this type of Poweramp try the mesa or marshall power equivalent you will understand ...). especially since the range is very large thanks to the contour that we can easily grow to 7.8 when we play mainly lead like me. the highlight of engl you have understood it but not the saturation Paisse gav that produced by low against the clean sounds are a little dry and ractifs my taste (with 81's normal) you have to play on the legalization of the guitar to get a good rsultat and is correct at the same time what we love in engl is the distortion that can occur.
I RPET but the distortion is strikingly beautiful prescision aisment we can play as a piece of malmsteen trilogy while feeling that each note is not dtach is a bit rough for a long time is right


I have two months since I love
The big plus is that sound typical of the brand
it is the tough engl
The report price is excellent quality for me is the best of 20/20 in both price (400 euros OCCAZ) than its
I do it again this choice without a doubt it is perfectly what it takes
