They are also dealers for Mission speakers and Yamaha electronics.

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

600w x 2 at just 29,990

I think this amp is not cheap.

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,

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

Yes venkat I'm so confused .....Samson MediaOne 5a monitor is out of stock there...and she advised me to get Bose companion 3 multimedia speakers the worst thing is ... it has got a sub..as she uses the same thing...what I hate about Bose is they don't mention the power anywhere........so um what to do.... my objective is to get a High power amplifier and speakers or a powered speaker that'll match the quality of a prof stereo amplifier...

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.

How Much Amplifier Power Do You Really Need? - Amplifier Power - What You Need To Know About Amplifiers and Amplification

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.
