    I consider George a friend and really hope this takes off. Here is an opportunity to get a 50W Metro-Plex for $2399:

    Plexi is a bad choice for most people... because you have to crank it too loud to make it sound good.
    ("loud" is an understatement :lol::lol::lol:) (more like: louder than shit, hearing loss - here you come)

    Most people who "think" they need a Plexi...don't really need one. And would have been better off with a lower loudness amp....that is made to sound good without being so loud.

    Until you actually own a Plexi, you may not understand what you are getting yourself into.
    This is a very clean amp, that does not break up...until it's unbelievably loud. The distortion is power amp distortion.
    And these amps were made for stadiums...not small venues.

    2203/2204 DSL etc...turns out to be a better amp for most players....because it's preamp distortion at a lower level.
    Works well in smaller rooms, without sending the audience running for cover.

    The Metro Plex is a master volume amp.

    One stage preamp (plexi) does not work very well w/ master volume.

    It is not a one stage preamp. It is 3 + CF to mimic a cranked plexi at any volume. Do some research before you post next time.

    Where's your amp build, AMS? Website? Amps you made, modded or modified?
