Hmm... take the 275 to the office, make sure shes sees you taking it... couple of days later... take home the TRU... tell her there was an accident, the 275 got destroyed, and the guy who destroyed it was terribly sorry, and gave you his own amp... If this works.. you owe me a beer (case).

If it doesnt... we'll miss you friend...

kb,i'm also suffering from same 'disease'.
I usually dont tell her the actual cost whatever i buy.
Even for my ICE,which her father was buying for me,i told her initially thats its worth only 25k.

Now as she has got a job,she wants to keep her money separate in separate bank as she fears that i would spend all the money for ICE and other related things.
But i'm trying to get atleast Eten/Atomo2 from her as gift.

mate the 240 to a bridged Blau 275 and you get a good 5 ch. combo for 15K. Might be the best value in ICE amplification yet.

Navinji, I may know of a better one yet...

I have been told by a member of this forum about the Alpine MRP-F320. Its from the Vpower range, used to sell 3-4 years ago. Apparently, Supreme still has some in stock. They are retailing it at 14.5k and dealers may give a further discount. These very underrated amps, and at this price I think its a great deal. as long as you get one brand new and with B&W.
