ENGL E840/50 Tube Poweramp
This is the well recess of a team of three lamps amp ECC83 and 4 lamps 5881 (or 6L6GC).
2x50 watt
input and output jack 16 or 8 ohms
2 volumes and 2 prsence controllable by footswitch
2 Stand By (left and right)


Very easy to use, even if the manual is in English or German we come to understand the trs CHARACTERISTICS of bte.


I use it with a pramp ENGL 580, a G major and EQ paramtrique ... and this amp, not only faithfully reproduces the sound of my pramp, but I even feel that beautifies the sound!
Each note jou is pure pleasure with happiness.
I'm not an expert in sound, but it's 15 years I have itches and I've never heard a sound as pure!
In addition, SETTING THE prsence are trs lens and really allow a broad spectrum of rglage sound.
I play thrash gnral mtal and heavy, but also blue, rock, jazz etc ...
and whatever the style or sound used a ring!


I use it now for 15 days, this amp sounds really surprised me, and every point of view, the only thing I fear is that it is not enough power (2x50 watts) live to cover a battery!
Well I was wrong, I have used in mono (ie 1x50 watt) in concert, and I covered much the battery and in addition it does not sound dnatur me for a penny! and this is just 1 / 4 volume!
In addition we feel that it's rib, I Lorqui rule we feel that the volume buttons are solid and will not stay in my fingers!

Little longer so, when applied it is lit DGIG Lumire a red light every lamp, giving a beautiful cot amp.
Basically I fell in love, I found my happiness and I do it again this choice without problem.

ENGL E840/50 Tube Poweramp
Amp rack 2U
2 channels stereo
1 ECC 83 entry level;

2 Control volume and two presence controls

Level amplification:
2 x 50 Watts (2 x ECC 83, 8 x El 84), separated by switches;

8 and 16 ohms per cannal stereo, a footswitch (not supplied).


Super simple setup and effective.
Being able to have two settings of presence and volume cannal allows me to keep my settings (volume quite formidable) to my recordings in another room, and you can play more relaxed when I want.

The sound is a killer. At first, I used a Peavey 5150 head, and later his power line, I thought it was terrible at the time. I then tried two generations of 2U Peavey 50/50, its already formidable. The Engl is definitely over, the sound is rich Armon, the grain of the preamp which it is coupled is now not aggressive ... excellent.


Ideal for all types of music, preferably to the music probably more saturated (Heavy, Death Metal ...)

After the tour of my friends for information, the amps listed for comparison were tested with a TriAxis coupled to a G-Major, with two different Ada MP-1 (one modified), a pyran and is a VooduValve Line. In any case, it is absolutely dreadful with a preference in my opinion for the Ada changed and strangely VooduValve (the VooduValve is nice to listen directly to the cabinet, but pretty bad when recording with micro - very cold and aggressive -), with 840/50 super Engl.

Update: I now have a 570, and coupled to 840/50, it is by far the most extraordinary config I had. (Personal opinion only ...: after 6 years of Triax with different config amp high-end, I find that this set Engl kills Mesa both sound clear, crystalline, warm ... as distortion, different grain, but lower register better defined, less and less runny boiled, sliced ​​more!)

Level guitars, microphones with test assets and liabilities (Jackson Kelly Us, Ibanez 540FM, ESP ...).

The sound is in any case very steep (especially with active pickups), but I think this just more of that preamp of the amp.

The dynamics are impressive. (Test with Marshall cabinet 800 4 * 12 with Vintage 50 Celetti, Marshall 1960A speaker cabinet, and cabinet ENGL Vintage 2 * 12)


Used for 2 months.
Purchased less than € 1000 new at Thomann.
Excellent value, a slap to Peavey and Mesa. Compare this with the VHT ...

ENGL E840/50 Tube Poweramp
Power amp lamps
2x50 W Stereo
2 rglages possible and by switchable pedals (optional)
prsence volume for each channel.
2xjacks enentres
4xjacks output: 2x8ohm or 2x16ohm.
a standby channel.
additional gain switch.


Usable even by the most remains without any worries.
A manual? What?
do you get a good sound easy? Ben, is the sound.


I mainly from the fact mtal and Carment.
I play with an Ibanez 540FM micro seymour SH4, Rokctron vudoo valve, baffle, and pod XT pro
Types of sounds, from the crystal-clear at the fat, saturated clearer than anything goes.
(Perfectly suits the speaker).
Trs prcis in severe and does not explode in the acute ears.
The sound does not DGRAD high volume.
If you ever have any doubt about the power (2 x 50 W), this thing dcolle the wallpaper, emplement Sufis for any use (bar, BPS ...) even with 4 drummers black mtal donf.


I use it for a week, and it is a pure joy!
What I like? Versatility, simpicit look (nice Lumire the red comes from the indoor).
Before I had a head Marshall JMP MkII not good for my use, the it's heaven.
trs good price quality ratio I think, less than in 1000 Thoman including shipping, this quality ...
Without hsiter I remake that choice.

ENGL E840/50 Tube Poweramp
Everything is said already ... too lazy ...;)


My config: GT PRO -> ENGL Poweramp 840/50--> Cabinet 2x12 Celestion V30 HP that I build myself (which is very nice!) Tolex with a super class and all that ...

The sound is really an appointment. In fact, before the Poweramp, I plugged my GT Pro on my enciente Yamaha HS 80m. The sound was already very good. Now I get a lot more depth and accuracy and really appreciate. Very nice. I guess not even what it can give with e570! First first slap: the Poweramp fill my bass donf therefore obliged to review all my configurations on my GT Pro. I now put the bass AU1 / 4!
Another thing: Poweramp is, I think for me, almost transparent what I think is a good point.


I use an ESP Viper with 301. What is interesting and welcome presence buttons are very effective.
The amp suits me very well. ENGL I chose because during a trip to Germany I had tried for the first time this brand and I fell in love literally (y 'is one that will not be happy;)).
Saturations are my life and have a nice texture. Even the clean sounds convaincu.Donc me it's all really positive.


3 days of use. I like everything. The value for money is very good (939 euros Thomann, received in 3 days! They are effectively the German ... French sellers should take a leaf). In addition to the 840/50 is robust and very beautiful.
I think between that and me are Poweramp kekchose's stuck right now. I do not regret that I put pennies in it.
