I have a A tucked away in a closet. My idea of amps has always been things like an Adcom, or NAD – and my idea of a wonderful amp being stuff like massive Krell, Bryston, Accuphase, Nakamichi PA-5 – stuff with big handles and huge 9444b. But I’ve heard pro systems that will give them a hell of a run for the money.

West By God 9444. I can sit you down in front of a pro system that will shame a hell of a lotta home systems and bring a hell of a smil to your face.

I”ve heard some really fantastic super rich systems. No one ever sells that kind of thing around here either, the Altec is the first pro power amp I’ve found. But given the kinds of speakers people tend to use with amps like this, I don’t think it’s the kind of amp that would work well for what I have Your standard pretty modern 3-way setup that is relatively efficient.

I get the impression this amp wouldn’t be the kind of sound or amplifier style I’d like – no big deal as I did find some cool stuff at this same place, this was just an interesting thing I saw and didn’t know if it was something really desirable for the people with the old speakers who I know do like and want this kind of amp.

I know AL tends to be pro audio and documentation on this amp did show it could be used for auditoriums and the like, but I am curious as to if it is any good for home audio use at all?
