Why are amplifiers so expensive?
In general a transistor has many problems like power dissipation, thermal run away. This leads to ultimate destruction of the transistor. To overcome this problems power transistors are used. The best amplifiers has good durability and hence costly..

New Member. As we begin to indulge our passion in music, We usually buy the best speakers we can on our budget. However in most cases I have seen that we cringe on Amplifiers. As far as I know the ratio should be 50% of total budget on speakers and 50% of total budget on a Amplifier.

Is crunch a good amplifier?
4.0 out of 5 stars For the money, it’s a decent amp for many applications. Added this amp to a factory system in a Jeep Patriot. Replaced my stock 6×9’s that are in all 4 doors with some Kenwood 6×9 3 ways. Sounds very good, I ran each speaker on its own channel and it sounds like the speaker can’t handle the power.
Why do old amps sound better?
How old is “old”? If you mean guitar amps, they usually sound better because they were handmade (sturdier wiring in particular helps), and build quality aids sound quality.
Why do Class A amplifiers sound better?
The sonic difference between Class A and AB is mostly because the Class A amps usually have better power supplies and regulation, and are also better built (they have to, as they run very hot).
Can you tell the difference between amplifiers?
These results do not permit us to say no person can ever hear differences between two good amplifiers, but they do strongly indicate that any such differences must not be very robust. No test such as David Clark’s or Richard Clark’s can ever show that there are no perceptible differences in amplifier sound.
