Torvin is an economical player in Chennai dealing with both electronics as well as speakers. Their speakers and subwoofers are decent - as is their outlet, which provides quite a good listening environment.

They are also dealers for Mission speakers and Yamaha electronics.

People looking for economical floorstanders can look at Torvin as an option as well.

I've never listened to Torvin myself, but I know someone who assists them with their design, and he himself tells me that although it's good value, the refinement is just not there.

600w must be at 4 ohms, while the amp may not be able to support a long time 4 ohms load.
I think this amp is not cheap.

Are we talking RMS here? I doubt this amp can produce 600Wx2 RMS even at 4 Ohms, even if we do not care about refinement at all.
Do you realize what a real 600W RMS x2 amp means; and how many of them exist (think > $5K).

I agree, this amp is not cheap at 30K, you can do better at that price point. Of course, you would get a 60 to 100W per channel of listenable sound for that money.

Thanks,
Sharad

Another Indian company called Studiomaster also makes these. Saw them at the Palm expo in Mumbai recently. The price range was similar from what I can remember. These amps arent meant for home use but for large outdoor setups. Sound quality isnt their strong suite.

Have a look at these monsters SX Series - Lightweight Amplifier :licklips:

Linenthu, I am a bit confused as to your objectives. The Torvins and StudioMasters cannot be compared . Studio Masters are professional amplifiers used in public places such as clubs, discos, etc., to drive extremely large speakers against very high ambient noise.

Torvin does make some decent amplifiers and speakers, but the majority of his clients are restaurants, buses, DVD Shops, Music Shops and such. He caters to such requirements and his amplifiers and speakers are tuned for such environment. They will be loud and bass heavy at the expense of accuracy and musicality. Torvin's entry into the two channel 'audiophile' market has this legacy that they carry. If you listen to film music at high volume, Torvin will fit perfectly. Mind you, I have a lot of respect for Torvin and the work they do.

It will be better if you decide what you are looking for and then focus on getting that.

Cheers

Go and visit Pro Musicals. He would be able to get you the Samson (active) speakers you want. It will be a little expensive as compared to buying in the US, but not by much.

Once you decide the speakers, we can look at what amplifiers you should get, if any. If you are serious about music and are on a tight budget, you can look at amplifiers from Norge, Pulz, Craftel. On a slightly higher level, you should look at amplifiers from CA, NAD, Marantz and companies such as those.

Let us take this step by step. Start doing some auditioning.

Cheers

If you get a well designed-refined amplifier which can do 150 watts per channel at 8 ohms around 50k you are a lucky man.

And avoid Bose.

How about the sw 1150, anyone has a idea on ballpark price ? This looks decent to be used in a two channel rig or ht ...

Audiodelic, Torvin charges some 20K for it's sub woofers with a power output of about 150Watts. Be aware that Torvin makes sub woofers for movie buffs and the commercial market. I found the subs to be loud and boomy.
