Crest CC range Amps?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, has anyone had experience with these?


I'm considering the 2800 model to replace my well used Peavey GPS2600 which has begun to act a little strange lately. It appears to offer a good power output (assuming 965W into 4 ohm is RMS) for reasonable money and with a respected brand name.






I was originally considering the Yamaha P5000S but would pay the extra for this.




Any advice or opinions and alternative suggestions would be much appreciated. Cheers

I have just spent £350 on a simple repair to an overcomplicated amplifier (main service centre simply repair the motherboard) - manufacturer's name withheld as to not drift off topic, I have just bought one of these with a view to use to power wedge monitors.


Having studied the circuit diagrams and visited the distributor's service centre, I feel re-assured that should there be problems, there is a reasonable chance of repairs and service for less than the cost of a new amplifier.


Worth a punt for the 1000W per channel version at about £500 (or less).

I'd been looking at the offerings from the major manufacturers and Crest was spoken of positively elsewhere on this forum too so I visited their website and concluded that the CC range was above entry level and was then pleasantly surprised at the price (I was expecting closer to 4 figures). While googling for reviews it was only then that I learned that Peavey bought Crest and that my GPS2600 was based on a Crest design.
