Comments about QSC GX3 Stereo Power Amplifier:
I have burned through several cheep amps, Pyle, Gemini, and a low end Peavey, and I was ready for something built to last. The QSC beat out Crown and Mackie at the same price point and wattage due to its input-output flexibility. It is built like a tank, and it has all the safety features I require. I use this to power a small PA: 12" 3-ways for mains, 8" 2-ways for monitors. My system has never sounded better, or been so easy to set up. Thank you Quilter.
