    ALL New school amps are junk!

    Thats right I said it. ALL New school amps are junk! I've been hunting for a couple of SQ amps the past couple of days and the new stuff is pathetic. And where are the numbers? Often companies are not showing important **** like SN/R, Seperation, and Dampening Factors.

    Don't get me wrong, you can get a
    100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 JIZAWATT amp for like $25 bucks, but the SQ is trash.

    And through my journey, I find that companies like xtant, PPI, Lazar, and Phoenix Gold are dropping crap now too.

    Oh well, Im going to buy some old school stuff and I don't give a **** how much it costs me.

    A lot of them are crap. I've had a few old Kenwood amps and I love them. They're just indestructible (within reason of course lol) and sound good for the price. But I'm really hesitant with the new stuff. I wish I wasn't always wanting more power otherwise I'd never replace them.

    Oh well, better than stock

    Honestly, I prefer old school amps any day over the newer crap. They were built a whole lot better and did their rated power then some. I dont think there will ever be amps built like that again...

    The only new amps I would consider buying are either still made in the US, or made in Europe like Rainbow, Audison, DLS, or Genesis.

    Didn't say I could not find one. I was mostly shocked at the companies I thought would have quality. Also I am trying to find bang for the buck, and ebay old school looks good to me. I don't compete so scratch and dent doesn't matter to me. As long as it puts out clean and powerful I would be happy.
