    Lightbulb B&K 125.2 S2 vs. Adcom 5500

    I need to call upon the brain trust that is Club Polk once again....
    Differences on these two amps anyone?? Not so much basic specs (I am read good... :) ), but what I can expect as far as sound quality, performance w/ LSI speakers. Thanks guys.

    Default Sorry about the redundancy

    Well I was a bit lazy and posted this thread because the Search's inability to find B&K was driving me nuts, but I have found out alot about adcoms so....
    Lets just take a poll

    Adcom vs. B&K, my vote goes to B&K. Of the poll choices, Aragon hands down, with distant second place to B&K. Don't care too much for the rest. Haven't heard too many Parasounds but that's another budget amp to add to your research list.

    I don't vote in polls like this because it's like American Idol; it becomes a popularity contest.

    I voted Adcom. No surprises here. They have just been great amps. They have received a bad rep for being to bright, but I have found that to be false. The pre sets the tone for the amp.
    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks
    Ben

    For Lsi I realy enjoyed B&K amps. I had a avr307 and a st140. Both powered them flawless. I also have used Rotel with stellar results.

    Yes sir, but I fear I'll start sounding like a broken record. The OP has another thread going and I commented in that one and he says he's done a search on Adcom and found lots of info; I'm guessing perhaps I might have said something in those other threads. :)

    Thats quite possibly the worst sounding amplifier I've ever heard in my life. It was off-key, off-pitch, and god-aweful bad. Its heavy too. Lacks inputs, outputs, and I want every penny I paid for it back.

    (to the chorus of boos)

    What, I'm just being honest!!!
    Do you hear that buzzing noise?
