    Does anyone have any experiences or opinions on Pyramid amplifiers ? Noise, reliability, performance etc. I am interested in using these amplifiers with a CS Plus.

    (no offense btw) anyone else find it rather ironic that Samson is asking about another brand of amp for an SVS? [​IMG]
    i cant tell you about HT/home audio stuff by them, but back when i was into car audio i wasn't impressed by their underpowered car amps. just my $.02

    How much will you be paying?

    Is this temporary or permanent?

    Where are you buying from? Ebay?

    It will probably work, but it won't be the best. Alesis has good reviews...

    Or zzsounds.com, they have Samson, QSC, Alesis all at good prices.

    Actually Alesis was spendy for what you get on paper. I looked...

    QSC was a better deal.

    Or, on the cheap you can find a stereo amp with one channel blown...Perfect for a dude with a sub...

    I'll probably just keep the Samson S700. The pyramid's reputation is somewhat suspect and the published specs seems inflated. It might be cheap but I think this might be one of those 'you get what you pay for' situations. Here's the link by the way.

    YOU MEAN YOU HAVE A SAMSON ALREADY?

    Why are you looking for amps, then? Cripes...

    Save money?

    Keep Sam.
