Indeed so. Should have queried that for sure. You can also claim relief on duty when sending goods outside the EU for repair, although have not done it personally.


To be frank the amps were on loan from somebody and after they arrived in mid Feb and we finally heard back on the repair end of April it was a case of paying just to not have to think about it any more.

Who you borrow them off Kyle? Was it that tenperature issue before the fix was widely known?

I would wait little bit until this crazy busy festival season ends, I know 2-3 companies much bigger and more capable than me. They are contracted already for H8 testing, also have wider range of speakers as well as large inventory of Lab Gruppen and Powersoft gears (for comparasion).

Not sure if anyone has posted this in another thread yet but according to their website you can buy one now... http://www.pknaudio.com/H8_eng.html   3950 euro + VAT


Edit: Image on the page looks like a render so I'm not holding my breath.

Once you need more than let us say 1000Watts, it seriously beat anything you heard in sound quality (dynamics, resolution, headroom..) and not only on SUBs.

External amplifiers are so last century.

Active speakers!

Yes and No!

The amplifiers you found in most (if not ALL..) of Active speakers are much lower capable, poorly made, lack of performance than proper external amps. I do not want to dive into technical details but I have seen ZERO properly designed amps in active speakers, not even in the most expensive ones!

Another untold story is that internal electronics, even placed into well-designed acoustically isolated chamber (to prevent harm due vibrations) have much much lower reliability than external electronics!

You would say that, you sell external amplifiers.

There is a really sad trajectory that cheap and poorly designed active boxes driven by ~49EURO or less amplifiers inside sold expensively of course with "heavy processing & linearization"  I do not like it.
I do not want to mention any brands, but once you check their active boxes inside with some basic knowledge how electronics work.. you will see what i am speaking.

So you’re saying the Hypex NCore is complete shit?

You’re absolutely hilarious.

Perhaps tell PKN HQ that they left the ‘amp error’ notice on their 3DS Max render of their latest amp.
