The FC 200 is a power amplifier transistor, which delivers a power of 200 W Bridge mode (Mono) or 2 x 100 W Stereo.
This is an amp type "neutral", with 2 volumes (left / right).
There is also an LED for each entry, indicating the signal level (green / red) and a switch that activates a circuit dedicated to the Guitar Mode.
The configuration is simple, either we choose to play with maximum power in mono (200 W), and only the volume control right will be active.
Either we play with 2 stereo speakers output (2 x 100 W) with of course the volume controls left / right.
The sound is especially effective in stereo speakers with eg 2 Marshall Guitar mode enabled.
After many years "Monoson" Playing in stereo is a real pleasure ... especially if one uses a multi-effects amp modeling!
I play mainly Ibanez RG420EG and most recently with the POD X3 Live connected! which gives the following configuration:
IBANEZ RG420EG - POD X3 Live (L / R outputs) to - CF 200 - out of 2 speakers Marshall *
* For the anecdote, the 2 speakers are in fact causing a Marshall cabinet 4 / 12 cut in half vertically (giving 2 speakers 2 / 12 wired into 8 ohms)
I use it since June 2008, and snooze on stage.
Before that I was shooting with my Marshall 2 body (head JMP 2203) which delivered course more heat and potato (lamps requires) but not able to play in stereo and especially hyper head heavy (20 kg).
The FC 200 is fine with me today for different styles Zique I operate and small scenes ...
and I would do without hesitation that choice especially at this price! (Thank you filgood52!)
