    I read in the archives that one of the LT 1000 watt amp put to shame a mackie 2400 watt one. I saw that amp online for $549 but thats a bit out of my price range. Can anyone recomend any of their other models in the $400 limit that has a QUIET FAN?

    Thanks

    HTF member PeteG, recently bought a Crest LT-1000 for $475 via a place he found on Yahoo shopping.

    He says he notices the fan a little, but that his wife isn't aware of it

    I have a CA-6 that is amazing. I can't say it is the quietest, but it is not objectionable. I work with electronics and the build on the Crest product is very good. The CA-6 has about 16 mosfets almost the size of a book of matches per channel. You can't go wrong.

    Bob Sorel swears by the VX900 of which he has (i believe) three that he uses to drive his main 5 channels. He reports that they are nearly silent and very powerful. If he sees this thread I know he'll chime in.
