    The BC3500 isn't a bad amp by any means, but is last in the list of these 4.

    the owner of audioque just said on another thread he would allow the 15 percent off free shipping today only if you called. if you can get the amp today jump on it

    the amp will only be 679 shipped and use that money you saved on the fi btl

Theres a reason he only works on certain amps . 1 becauise of the money he cna make and the access to the parts . IMO dc quality would poo all over AQ and DD period

    Re: AQ3500.1 or DC 3.5K?

    I've had both. I've tested both. I'd rather have the AQ.

    Someone said its the old style M4 and a Zenon board. Ok. Is that bad thing? No. It's a good thing.

    I'm not going to go into a pissing match about DD amps vs. DC because I really like DC. But I don't run their amps for a reason. The price to performance isn't there (for me). And I'm not doubting mylows' clamp, but I couldn't get that out of mine.

    I've never claimed to be an amp engineer or repairman. But I've owned and tested a lot of f'n amps. Anyone who questions AQ's reliability is a retard. The AQ2200 remains as one of my favorite amps. It's a straight up warrior. And even if the DC2.0 and the AQ2200 were the same price, I'd still get the AQ.

    M4 vs. a DC3.5? I'll take the M4, please.

    And I'm not biased. I use what works. I think it's awesome that mylows is cutting you a deal. Kudos to him, but before you pull the trigger on that kind of money, give Jack Sisco a call about the B2 Audio Zero.1.

    At the end of the day, they're all good amps. If one fits your eye better or your budget better or you want matching gear, roll with it. You can't really go wrong. Mylows is a stand up dude but B2's customer service is 2nd to none and that's a fact. DD's? Well... Not so much. AQ was cool the couple times I've dealt with them.

    Let me just say that I'm not bashing DC at all. I love DC. And their amps are top notch. I think they undershot with the 2.0 and 3.5 though.

    Re: AQ3500.1 or DC 3.5K?

    aq is a good amp and no one said it didnt put out . but they had a real 3.5 board in it before and when they came out with the 3500.1 its a 4k board so it seems super underated but in factits a 4k+ board in the amp with a 3500 name on it . No doubt i love my amp it throws my subs nicley. but for shiz and grins ask @dbeez ; for his experience with DD amps on his M4as
