    That should get 'er done! So, I guess the "lowly Tri-Vista integrated" will be in the FS section soon??? :D

  • Damn, that is a beast of a power amplifier. 2500w input power at 115vac input power works out to just over 20 amps of current draw (21.7 if my math is good). Lights all over your neighborhood will dim when you turn it up....

    Sorry, Troy, but I have a pair of 'Trey-modded' Mezzo Utopias, so IMO I should get first dibs on the amp :D We may need a mediator.

    You know things are serious when your power amp and preamp ship on a pallet

    Nice, Trey! When's it due to arrive?

    Is the Tri Vista still available? PayPal "blank check" sent while Troy and Jody are distracted rolling around pushing each others faces into the sandbox.

    I would guess early next week...

    I believe the tri Vista is spoken for... Ayyee... Man what a tough Amp to sell... The sound of the tri Vista on the utopias is like gold lol. The tri Vista just doesn't have quite enough umph for the grandes at higher volumes with transients.

    The tri Vista is a monster...

    350 8 ohms, 600 at 4. 90 plus amperes current...

    They are almost a perfect match for the grand but when both of those bass drivers are driving at higher volumes, you can hear some compression in the sound

    Jokes, Trey! Jokes!

    I enjoy my MF stuff, but I agree, that Tri Vista is a beast. Eager to hear how the new addition works with the Grandes.

    That's okay, I'll get the next one. I was planning to use it with some Monitor 4s. Probably wouldn't have been enough power anyway.

    Surly not ..

    Amazing young talent...based here in Nashville :)

    But come on...how can you post a pic of your Christmas tree, and a poinsettia, without Christmas music?
    Eh...you do you, Trey!
