Spread Spectrum Tech Ampzilla 2000 ($7,500) Review on 10 Audio

Monday, February 23, 2009

10 Audio has posted a review of the Spread Spectrum Technologies Ampzilla 2000 monoblocks ($7,500/pair). These are 200 watt units with both RCA and XLR connections (photo).

Reviewer Jerry S. liked them a great deal, ultimately awarding them a rating of 9.5 out of 10. He loved their bass, tonal balance, and dynamics. He had only one small complaint:

There is a small sense of forwardness in the upper midrange. This sense went largely unnoticed after listening to the amplifiers for a week or so, but changing back from the Marantz or Manley monos brought this character back to mind.

Read the entire review, then tell me if you have ever seen an uglier amp. Honestly, who the hell thinks a $7,500 pair of components should be painted neon blue and have a logo designed by a teenager?
