American Audio VLP 300 Amplifier
on February 25, 2012
I have purchased a total of 5 of these amps from Amazon, 3 on one order and 2 on other orders. I just hooked them up on 2-25-12 and had a problem with one of them. Channel A on one amp would not produce sound. All the other amps worked fine. I am still waiting on a reply from American Audio on repairs to the one amp. But the amps which worked sounded great. My system includes a Gemini preamp, Numark dual cd player, Behringer mastering sound processor, Seismic Audio speakers. After I had everything hooked up and made some basic settings on the sound processor I had great sound from these amps ( no hiss or humming at any volume level ). The cooling fans are somewhat loud but if the amps are rack mounted this will not be a problem. Its too bad one amp was defective but I bought 2 of these as spares so its just a small problem to get the one amp repaired. They appear to be built rugged, but if you plan to use these amps in a portable PA system beware, as they are somewhat heavy for their size ( 22 pounds apiece for a 150 watt, 300 watt max amp in one rack space size, I have 110 pounds of amps alone! ). I have these for my sound system at home so the weight will not be a problem for me. Overall I am pleased with the amps and hope American Audio will make warranty repairs easy. I gave a rating of 4 stars because of the one defective amp.
