Don't go by the numbers. You have to hear DLS and Genesis amps to believe they put a lot of clean power, which alpine can only dream OF!

The power they put most probably fries most low end speakers.

DLS Reference Series brother, go for it!
I meant DLS are the "Ultimate" amps when it comes to Sound Quality!
Genesis is equally good too,but, as you made out service is a concern.

Hey, why not Steg? Are they much more expensive than these?

I have no idea about DLS and as EPIC confirmed there must be some problem with DLS and their distributor related to service and support, but i am sure there is no service concern with Genesis Amps.

@nitinralli - I am planning to buy my equipment from 'Woofersetc' and the likes.

Yes our current set ups and proposed achievements are identical. This will be interesting!

@abhibh, karankapoor & Mi10 - This is exactly what I wanted to know about cleaner amps with less output. If so, I would love to have the DLS or Genesis but the lack of after sales is a concern.

@abhipuru16 - With regards to Steg, haven't they shut too?? Don't want to invest in something with a high cost if God forbid something goes wrong and would be a headache to get parts later.

I dont know about Dls after sales service but as far Genesis is concern they do have a authorized distributor/importer in Delhi so getting your amp serviced or repaired will not be an issue.

Sorry Epic, no idea about whether Steg shut down their operations. I heard them in LBM's setup and they are extremely clean sounding.
But, I actually doubt what you just said. Just a few months back, GTO replaced his Civic's amps with Stegs. I think he got them from Ajay Kamath (bass&trouble). Contact GTO and bass&trouble to clear your doubts.

What i remember it was posted by navin ji in a thread that steg amps will not be available in the market anymore, So i doubt he can get maybe from the old stock.

Here is the post.

Yes, i think worrying about after sales of a Genesis amp should be last of your concern.

DLS is hitting a rough patch in distribution all over India. Not sure why ?

Hey guys,

Thank you for all the replies which are helping me to a large extent in clearing many doubts. Obviously it is confirmed that DLS are having issues and Stegs available today are clearance of old stock.

However, I haven't got any of your thoughts on the Audison amps. They have amazing reviews all over the world and if I'm not mistaken, they are distributed by Kumars.

If you are thinking about Audison then look at LRX series.

@ EPIC aka Garry ,

We have an interesting tussel here,
wow i cant imagine ICE can be soo seamlingly interesting as well as confusing to pick
out something that fancies the living daylights of a trueblue audiophile - now i know who this audiophile could very well be , ahhhh Mann! EPIC you are living dangerously
with this ICE keeda maybe try to get hold of your thoughts and emotions straight, attain the sunday mass and pray for something better this christmas season for
karma of gaining that AMP + MONO setup , Wish the Moolah of 50K does some envy to others including Me too bruv.(You know i am in your team HAHAHA)

Jai MOrel , Jai TEMPO


Regards
TND(tarak)

I don't know why everyone is harping about áfter sales and service for amplifiers. If they are installed well, they can provide clean power for years on end. No harm in getting an amp without a warranty. Make sure it's a good amplifier, to start with and then be doubly sure it is installed well. Period.
That should put an end to this faff about an amp not being purchased JUST because it's got a falling service network or the amp is going out of stock or it is OLD stock. NOTHING of this sort holds true for amplifiers. They will hang on to their lives till you want them to.

UNless you go in for brands like V12, Audiobank, Alphine, Panasoniccs etc
