    Zed ESX 120.4

    I just picked one up for 190 plus shipping. Quite happy and excited. Anybody have experience with these?

    Killer price. Amazing generation of amplifiers. A four channel that you can turn into a monoblock. Zed...

    Local classified. I don't have time to pick up which is why they were going to ship, but they are actually driving through here to go to Vegas so I saved even more now.

    Would you happen to know about replacing the electrolytic caps on these?

    Honestly, I would send it to the man himself. Zed audio is still in business.

    I wonder how much that costs cause truthfully I'm a little low on money, just couldn't let go of this because worst case scenario I could turn it around for some money.

    Re: Zed ESX 120.4

    Very nice amp I have a 120.2 & 475.1 getting ready to go into my friends build. Awesome amp. Very very very flexible. I have a pdf of a manual if you need it. They do sound good and have a bunch of grunt. I haven't heard an amp that has the ultra low octave grunt that the 475.1 has it is unreal also has great control on the upper-midbass there is just a sense of urgency and snap. Pm me if you need the manual.

    Better yet here is a link to the manual. http://www.esxaudio.de/manuals/disco.../Q752-4752.pdf
