    VocoPro FEATHER AMP FA-500 reviews

    FEATHER AMP FA-500 480W Class D Power Amplifier is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than you think!! Confession: I have a love affair with class D amplifiers. While not perfect they do many things right. As a reference point my main amp for two channel audio is the Crown xls2500. Explosive dynamics! Very neutral. Smooth. Now on to this VocoPro...I like it! Smooth with a slight lean towards a laid back sound. Great detail but more laid back than the Crown. That doesn't mean it rolls off the highs--just a bit more relaxed. Detail is certainly there. Midrange: superb! Especially female vocals. Neutral midrange. Bass: This is were class D shines. The Crown has a firm grip on the woofer. It starts and stops instantly---as I said: Explosive dynamics and the tightest bass I've ever experienced. The VocoPro while not quite as good as the Crown is very good. Bass is tight, Dynamic. Very neutral in this area as well. Given it's a lower power amp it does a great job give given its price point. I've always wanted to try one of the B+O ICE amps and this was an excellent, affordable version. I am very happy with this amp. Over it's a winner. Makes for a perfect entry level amp for two channel home audio. Yes, you can use studio and PA amps for home audio. The results will shock you. Class D is here to stay. Its come a long way. I have yet to hear any amp drive a woofer as quickly, accurately and as musical as my Crown. This amp is a great bargain. Odd size and looks but it works great.
