Thats because guitar amps also include a speaker, which takes up 90% of the space.... and this is used for headphones.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Nah-ah not all guitar amps come with speakers Weiman icon_razz.gif
Marshall JCM800

That's just the Amp, no speaker icon_razz.gif Tube Amps are sexy, especially the old Marshall JCM800 series..

Here's a half stack with Tube Amp and Cab speakers.


Sorry I had to show you were half wrong half right there icon_razz.gif

Oh I have these speakers picked em up a few years back at a auctions they're still practically brand new, a pair of Dynamic Audio AT-300
Best replacement for the front left and right speakers for my 5.1 home theatre surround sound. I'd post their specs but I am too lazy.

You did not reply for my desperate call for help icon_sad.gif

Which is not need btw, one of the front tubes wasn't making contact properly..got loose after shipping.

It seems the balance of the sound has shifted a bit to the left now, even after changing the tubes around again.

$200 for the item, like $60 shipping and my mom paid 30 import tax cash at the door when it was delivered icon_razz.gif She didn't tell me to pay it back so I don't think I will.

Brb, systematically removing all <192Kbps Mp3's from my PC..

Fuck that's alot of money to end up with a faulty part.
Why don't you rip your music in Flac, Lossless or 320K, 192k just doesn't do it for me, although I have a lot ripped in 128k cause of torrents haha.

Its really common now that torrents are in lossless which is good for the listener but sucks for me because it means i cant get them on my shitty dl limit.
Guess i should buy the cds, eh?

Yeah, like the majority of my iTunes library is torrented 31GB of music around 5200 MP3 files.. I like how people upload in Flac and the like but 700MB for a CD is just way to much when in Australia we got shit net as well.. I mean 12GB of downloads a month to use?!
I'm slowly getting there with the CD's almost got all of Motley Crues haha Now just another 60 bands to go x.x

Oh, it's 'fixed' already, I would just adjust the volume in my control panel, but the option simply doesn't show up for some reason icon_confused.gif It persists when I swap the tubes..

And yes, most of those mp3's I didn't rip myself icon_razz.gif

And I suggest you stop mentioning torrents. Go thank Several major band releasing their albums for free.

And I'm not saying 192kbps is good, it's just that anything underneath is unbearable icon_razz.gif

Imo, if you really want Flac quality just pop the cd in your disc drive and listen to it from that..

you got it backwards icon_razz.gif if you want CD quality, use FLAC icon_wink.gif

but why would you want to pop in a CD, which is a pain in the ass, when you could have the music a double-click away, all sorted the way you like it?

i'll admit i was surprised that an LD didnt work out of the box, considering they test all the units right before shipping. glad to hear a bit of rolling fixed the issue icon_smile.gif

try listening to some GnR, if you have a relatively high-rez file - Appetite and Illusions were all mixed, imho, absolutely superbly, and really show off the capabilities of these amps
