    PowerAmp transistor, 2-channel stereo 2x80w.
    Front, 2 volume knobs, one for each channel, and the on / off!
    At the rear, 2 input, 2 output and a switch (ValveState and linear).

    The look is simple, golden color typical Marshall!

    UTILIZATION

    Well, simply turn on the beast and put the volume at will ...

    SOUNDS

    I only use my Line6 JM4 to amplify!
    The rendering is very good ... more than a preamp in fact!
    I plugged it in many preamp Marshall (ENGL E530, JMP1, Piranha), and the sound was not as good with a Rocktron Velocity (also transistor, but 120w), a Brunetti Rockit, or that a E840/50 ENGL ...

    It lacked a bit of body volume and low volume High precision!

    I wanted to say this, but this is not to "break" this unit, far from it!
    € 80 OCCAZ we can do better!
    In fact, I use it almost every day not to turn a head lamp to play only 20 minutes, and it helps me very well!

    To quibble, it may be missing a knob "definition" (tone) channel ... <div>Sometimes, randomly, i like to insert stuff in my rear (and I don't mean tubes...)</div>

    OVERALL OPINION

    I tried several PowerAmp (cited in "sounds"), but for my use, it is perfect. My JMP1, I prefer my Velocity 120.

    The QPR is excellent.

    He does what is expected of him, but if this is to put a preamp lamps, high-end, this is not what is best.
    It does not color the sound cons.

    PS: I state again that I bought this unit only to plug my looper / sampler Line 6 JM4 ... not to go again with a good Preamp (even if out of curiosity, I tried, of course )!

    2x80 watts transistor

    It is a power amp transistor side so it is very neutral color
    The switch adds a touch Valvestate Marshall not transcendent but not bad

    two volume knob is rather simple and more settled not taken head on that side!

    SOUNDS

    it depends on the material used and plug in (so listen to)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used it for 5 years, and he is filled role to perfection, then certainly this is not a tube amp and this sense when going to the lamps, but in my rack of the day j ' had a digitech gsp artist has preamp valve behind the lights and the solution was not very expensive for:

    1) be a boost without lugging a semi trailer
    2) To play in stereo
    3) have enough power to play at home again and live in
    which after all is just what one has asked all our gear!
    I would do this choice if I went up a rack of effects because of okaze it's really a matter
    but my finances are changed and the lamp has warmed up my heart and my ears since ....

    An amp rack compact and very correct

    Marshall 8008Published on 07/13/12 at 01:30
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    - Power Amplifier in 1U Rack
    - 2x80W (4 ohms)
    - Jack Inputs & Outputs
    - An ON / OFF button
    - A volume control knob for each channel
    - A Linear Switch / ValveState (simulation lamps)

    UTILIZATION

    We can not be simpler. There anything else to set the volume and place the switch "Mode" on the mode you want (Linear / Valvestate)
    No need for manual, I've never had elsewhere.

    SOUNDS

    This amp is transparent.

    Some say his power level is not a true 2x80X and can be a bit light power level when you have a drummer furious. I've never tested live, just in the studio.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The Value is very good.
    For my use it is perfect (in a home studio), I have connected a Digitech preamp VGS2120 then last year a POD and POD HD 500 PRO HD. He has always done his job, that is amplified by letting them express any preamp with good sound at low volume.

    If you have a budget of around € 100 for the amp, try to find this amp used, it is a great choice! Also note that it is not broken, then it is on the other hand silencieux.Je have never tried to push very hard time because I use it at home.

    I will ever be the same choice without hesitation as I have not found a tube amp rack 5W in 1W switchable.

    OVERALL OPINION

    then I am separated as more repeat, live or studio.
    to have tested several types of amplifiers, for me the config preamp / power amp is the best.
    this is a very good amp. value for money impeccable.

    IMPORTANT:
    I advice to find cabs at 4 ohms as the amp is more suitable in this config for my part I was rising in PARALLEL celestion rocket 50 and I had twice to 100 watts into 4 ohms hp with amps issuing 2x80watts is total happiness!
    in this config it I played 1/3 volume and it was hard with the preamp output to 60%.

    Transistor amp 2x80W
    min 4ohm/canal
    Jack connectors only
    Volume control only
    Valvestate switch on the back

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple configuration, you plug and play.
    Before 8008 I played a combo VS65R of the same brand, I found that grain Valvestate when the switch is on, I'm not too homesick.
    The sound is good although a few additional watts would have been welcome.

    May be a lack of power but for the home studio, it's enough.
    Troubleshooting used to amplify a bass in a Line 6 Pod Pro, but also the fact that the lack of power becomes more problematic for those who love the low round and deep.
    For my part coupled with a V-Amp Pro Berhinger and a Harley Benton 4x12 Vintage 30, the rendering is very correct.
    I just plug it into a 4x12 412F-BK Bugera brand new, this is not as good (maybe lapping of HP, to see ...) but not bad either.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for 6 years in a home studio with various preamps and different cabs, this amp is an excellent value for money.
    For the home studio and rehearsal is great, simple and effective.
    A good rugged and reliable cheap in secondhand.
    If he had let me go, I look for another to replace it.

    SOUNDS

    I plug it into a 2x12 Marshall 1922 with HP changed for Vintage Gold. on the other hand I plug it in stereo (left and right). I removed the internal connection between the HP to connect to mono.
    On stage is powerful as well suffisement return. In such small space bar together no need to dub in the sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have a very long time and this amp fills its role very well especially for the average hand.
    It is very robust (transistors), at his murder.
    Admittedly, this is not a tube amp so it is useless to seek comparaion.
    For the price I would do this choice.
