  • Adcom Amps?

    Does any body have any thoughts on Adcom amps? The GFA-7805 is a monster amp at 300 watts per channel and i'm dying to get more power into my system. I'm either going in two opposite ways. With 5 B&K mono amps or a multichannel powerfull amp like Adcom. What do you guys think? Thanks J.H.

      You won't get much support for Adcom products here....not sure why. They seem good enough for me.

        I don't own any amps other than stereo or mono. Problem with a multi-channel amp is if you lose one channel you lose them all to the repair shop.

          I recall some past opinions on the older amps as having a certain amount of grain or grit in the treble. I can't say about the current offerings. I did own a couple of Adcom pieces (2-channel preamp and 5.1-channel pre-processor) years ago. They didn't remain in my system too long because of treble and noise floor shortcomings. Its always good to audition and judge for yourself as YMMV.

            Yeah odd not alot of play for Adcom on here but B&K has its own section and they get no play. I just bought a B&K Ref50 S2 and its amazing but not mucg talk on here about it or them. I may buy two B&K mono amps next. Anyway thanks for the help J.H.

              If it's not ROTEL/Parasound/Classe....don't expect ppl to talk about them on here...

                You are right about that my friend. Rotel I was surprised to find out has the most play of any manufactures on here even more than Parasound. I had no idea Rotel sold that well or had that big a following. that surprised me. The guys really don't get a whole lot of talk and I wonder why?

                  Well, adcom really dropped the ball when they went to Home theater processors. I believe they aren't even manufacturing their equipment anymore...but that maybe just a rumor.

                  Either way, I use them...and like the SQ.

                    I've heard that about Adcom which is a shame but it doesn't explain why theres no play for B&K which is an excellent HT company that makes all there own equipment in Buffalo NY which is amazing this day and age. J.H.
