DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions - Page 102

post #1516 of 1997

It's been said that in general, Saab buyers have a higher IQ.

 

When I was a little kid my Mom drove a Saab that I think was a 1970 96.  Before that was an older VW Beetle, before that a VW Bus.  So I guess that's showing some signs of intelligence.

its been discussed previously with mr dna, and no unfortunately the 596 is not 100% compatible

 

 

 

and i'm loving my new 2014 Mercedes CLA 250, unfortunately it doesn't come in Donald North Blue though.

Hi Frank,

 

That's a beautiful bike but no, I'm not going to purchase it. I have some friends with motorcycles who have been in accidents, and I don't want to join them. I'll watch from the sidelines :)

How does the Stratus handle the sub-bass frequencies? Some tube amps seem to struggle with bass roll-off, can the Stratus comfortably drive the TH900 (for example) to produce solid sub-bass?

only cheap tube amps struggle with bass roll off. 

 

ive never had a tube amp truly feel rolled off in the bass unless im using cheap tubes.

 

of course SS will generally have deeper and better bass, but now tube amps are good enough where the differences aren't as big.

Some valve amp (say older push pull), even with good brands, can get roll off in the bass (sort of lose, fall apart sounding). With good SET amp doubt there is too much problem there.
