Shilts/Headboppin (2006) -- Break the Mold

Drinking Maxwell House Columbian coffee and listened to some Great "Headboppin" music.

Today we are using the Adcom GFA-555 11. This is an Excellent sounding amp! Deep, tight bass, with a nice controlled top end. Don't write this amp off. For peanuts on the used market, you can have some incredibly great sound. I'm glad I have 2!

I'm curious how the Adcom sound compares to the Emotiva. I'm using a 555 bridged for my subwoofer.

March Fourth Marching Band/ Rise-Up (2009) -- Yak Attack
Haven't heard this one in awhile. Good sounding cd.

To my ears, the Adcom 555 II has better bass than the Emotiva xpa-1(Gen 1) mono's.

Ha!

Anthem, you've been rummaging around in the amp aisle of your gear barn again! :laugh:

Your reserve of gear is amazing!!!!

Bet you can't find an amp there that doesn't make those T Ref's just sing! :)

Happy listening, my friend!
