Finally had my 4 power amplifiers delivered from my home back in Leicester. It took ages and weighs a ton but I'm over the moon they've arrived (and in one piece). Yes, I'm a serious music listener.

So, this is the kit;

2 x Counterpoint Natural Progression Mono (monoblocks) - 600 watts per channel each, coupled with my B&W Nautilus 801 Diamond Series speakers made sure my home rocked. Hernia inducing 42kg each.

Counterpoint NPS 400e - Professionally modified so running 700 WPC - This ran my Cerwin Vega VS-150 speakers (which I'm hoping will arrive in August along with my 801s). Same again, but this setup was more for parties, loud, with bass that would knock your wig off.

Counterpoint Solid 2e - the 'baby' of the group at only 400 WPC. After I split the system up (it was a multichannel setup in my cinema room) I used Monitor Audio Silver RS6 on this amp. Very sweet sounding, I loved the RS6s!

Here's a few pics I have floating around on my phone.

DUDE! That's when you want the people 5 blocks away to FEEL your favorite song.

 

I still have my original Cerwin Vega AT-15's from 1988 powered by a Carver 1200. Those Vega's are more than anyone can possibly imagine. Plenty of manufacturers made 15's back in the day, but the sheer brute force of the CV's will pull the air out of your lungs and break your furniture :lol:  :w00t:  :yes:  

 

PERFECTLY PAIRED WITH THOSE AMPS TOO! My AT's are rated at 600 watts each, I'm sure yours are the same, so perfect balance.

The Death Star? Piffle! These babies power the sun! :)

I'm afraid not bro, they've been in proper storage for about 3 years and lost all my photos off my hard drive after it took a crap. Rest assured once I have everything in my possession I'll take detailed photos.

Yesssss! Another Cerwin Vega fan! I love the AT 15s,they're a humane way of beating your internal organs to a pulp. :)
I bet your system sounda mean! Would love to have a demo of it sometime. How does your Carver amp sound? It's signature?

4 18s would be a proper earthquake, that must have some rumble!

Mate that's a gorgeous setup. Which Kenwoods do you have, and what are the taller speakers with the side firing woofers? They look fabulous.

Those Kenwoods are bloody beautiful! I'm always coming across hi-fi gear so if Im offered one I'll let you know.

Here's a few more shots of the NPMs, along with my TRC 931 so you get a good idea of the size of these amps.
