Some have stated that Mr. Speakers himself said that they pair relatively well, while others have said the pairing is just nigh of terrible. I got my E12 rather recently, and don't really have the spending money to shell out for another, higher quality portable amp. I was simply wondering if anyone here knows if the E12 is a good pairing for my price range.
Any responses are greatly appreciated!
Ha, this was the subject of some nit-picking not long ago.
MrSpeakers reported that someone else told him that the E12 worked well the Mad Dogs. I did recently see another post where someone was less enthusiastic about it.
So, we can trust MrSpeakers' reporting, and thus we can assume one person liked the pairing. Since you already own the E12, and since the Mad Dogs have a 14-day return policy, it would seem safe (i.e. you are not buying an amp). You can judge for yourself.
I think we can assume that the E12 will not sound as good as a more expensive amp.
Note that I myself have never heard the E12.
