I could list the stock faults but if you've bought them working then I wouldn't worry about it.

Made for QSC by Goldpeak group.



Thumbs Up... Agreed.

From memory the PLX2 models have a couple more caps in the PSU, and apart from that they are pretty much the same.



Ok, thanks. 

And yes, buying them, not selling to replace with iNukes!!    LOL LOL LOL

Nothing new there. I remember this lot from my (turbid) past:-

Looks like I have made a mess here. Lemme explain. I thought/misread (read it without reading glasses) that Earplug is selling those QSC amps. So I thought, why the heck he would replace them with nowadays class D crap amps since PLX amps still have a good value. Look for example Behringer iNuke series, it's a toy, not for real men. Well, I must be honest. I'm 54 years old, grew up with heavy iron amps and I can't change. It's too late for me to convert. LOL

Funnily enough, I recently had some dealings with Linea Research while trying to get an old Turbo module manufactured by them fixed. Their products are definitely impressive - but like 10x the price of anything Class iNuke! No comparison there.  Ermm

when i look at pictures of insides of Linea Research amps they strike me as some kind of amateurish design

with dynacord there is a sense of quality to basically everything

with powersoft there is a sense that things are laid out intelligently ... not necessarily quality but intelligently ... many heatsinks and fans look undersized but airflow is clearly managed such that the cooling air is going exactly where it should be going 

dynacord philosophy seems to be to just build it right ( typical German logic ), with Powersoft the philosophy seems to be maximum performance at minimum manufacturing cost, size and weight ( how things SHOULD be engineered ) and with linea research the logic seems to be - just go apesh1t on capacitors and monster fans and don't think too hard.

here in US all 3 amps cost the same while clearly Dynacord is highest quality and Linea Research lowest.  but in UK perhaps prices are different.  

does the lazy design of Linea Research actually translate into lower performance ?  it doesn't have to.  those fans in there look monstrous.  they quite likely can compensate for inefficient layout where the airflow isn't really channeled at all ... i do wonder how loud those fans get under load.

i have to wonder though if all those companies that rebadge Linea Research amps pay the same prices as the little guys pay.  it is possible that their main business is to OEM for all these other companies that maybe bundle the amps with speakers or whatever and that on consumer side they keep prices inflated for prestige purposes.

or maybe the prices are just so bad in US.

what i'm basically saying that just because all the OEMs are switching to Linea Research doesn't mean it's worth whatever the price is to YOU in your market.  we don't know what those OEMs are paying or what their arrangements are.

LOLLOLLOLLOLLOLLOL

Sure, the guys from Linea are all total amateurs with no experience or knowledge. It’s actually just designed by throwing all the components in a box with some glue, shaking it and seeing where they stick then making EAGLE work out the PCB traces.
