I have used this amp too. It can swing volts but I find it not to be very musical (compared to the Alpine 240 for exmaple) as a fullrange amp. for a sub however it is great.

Forgot the GM62, GM620s, the mini amps? Then there used to be a cassette player that did not have an in-built power amp and was sold with an external din sized power amp ..or was it half-din, cant remember.

Around the same time there used to be the Pioneer GM2000, GM2200 etc., black amps with no crossover control. Then came the 404, 904, 802 etc.

B&T, I am trying very hard not to bite this "nostalgia trip" thing. You know very well where that will lead.

Oldest cd player you mean? I think you're talking about the P80. Dont know if thats the correct model number.

How can you be in Class 9 in 1993 when you are 38 years old now? Late schooling?

In those days, Kenwood used to make some awesome amplfiers. I remember my first amplifier, the Kenwood 644, then changed to the Kenwood 645. Then I got a Kenwood PS200 to drive my subwoofer, not that was a crazy 2 channel full power amplfier. Kenwood also had the 744 and 745.

Those were the days my friend.

Good idea Ashish! A nice Single Malt & "The Best of the Doors" on Doc's pimped out stereo sounds like a great idea, what say?

I am not going to ask what free ka chXX means. I am sure it doesn't mean what it looks like. Raghvinder, this is a family forum, with rules.

Ik Thapad marunga tenu. Free ka chXX kya hai?
