If their amps are built to the same standard as their other high end gear they should perform very well. Though for the money I think they could be better options out their. Checkout NAD S250 for $999.
You've made your point so leave it at that. Do you honestly think Monsters the only company sueing others for copyright infrindgments? If the law allows them to do it then the law is flawed.
Your correct that markup on Monster products are high. Is that the fault of Monster or the retailer selling it? Going to your local Big Box store to purchase Monster products leaves people with little room to negotiate price. Going to your local BM store allows for some negotiating room. I also put a link in my first response to the NAD S250 which is NAD's top of the line Silver Series. At 5x125w or 2x200w it has more than enough power for Kevin_kr needs.
Ok so this thread was not abashinh thread I wanted to know who had used them. You say I am killing the small business by buying them. What happens when to many people buy from a smaller cable like Blue Jean and they become big, do you stop buying them. Monster started out small just like everyone else.
He's not referring to that. He's referring to the fact that they trademarked the word "Monster" and have been suing a great deal of smaller businesses using this name. Just bullying them imo even when their business has nothing to do with audio. "Monster" is a very common word: Now their arrogance thinks they own it.
So, a lot of people wish to boycott them. And, I might ask, when is Monster the best value in anything.
I have a local friend that has these amps and they sound VERY good. He has them paired with VR4jr.'s and they have tons of power, very nuetral and are built extremely well. Evidently ther were designed with Richard Marsh and seem to be excellent, but get zero press.
Hey if a company can maximize their profit margin on their products, then more power to them. My hangup is how Monster goes about doing this. They turn all these salespeople in the big box stores into zombies, who in turn do nothing but push Monster on you. It's a combination of customers just not knowing, greedy salespeople looking for incentives, and Monster wanting to milk you for everything you haven't already spent on equiprment. That's about the time your heart sinks, when you realize that the clown at Ultimate Electronics says you'll need a few hundred dollars worth of Monster cables, plus the few hundred dollar power cleaner (which should never be bought upfront). I could go on ranting, but why bother.
