    Default Amp info

    Ok,
    I know that there is a huge debate going on about amps here, but I am wondering if there is any source for amplifier info. As in how they work, how they are hooked up and lastly what are the good brand names? If there is such a thing as a good brand name. I am not trying to start a 3 page debate. I just want basic info. :) Thank you in advance for your knowledge on this subject.

    David,

    I would suggest doing a search here, audioasylum or even a yahoo search or something. There is literally TONS of information.

    On the same note, there are LOTS of reputable amp manufacturers. I wouldn't go so far as to say there are 'good' or 'bad' amps, only opinion.

    That may be kind of general in scope but hopefully it's a start.

    Though I believe that what you're after is the basics, I thought this article had some pretty good explanations of what some of the specifications associated with power amps, mean. And if you hit the "Return to articles index" link at the top of that page, you can find this one that talks about the basics of how amps work.

    That other thread concerning amps started out as a good question but has now deteriorated into a fight. Despite the way it looks sometimes, there are some really sharp people on here who can give you good answers, if you have more specific questions. I'm not necessarily one of them...but I'll be glad to try to help.
