Hi,

I have a synergy 2 unit and i am looking for a power amp. Problem i have is, i don't really want to drop 1200 on the synergy 50/50 as i am only using this for a small bedroom setup. I can buy a used Mesa 2:100 for 500 over here in the uk.

What are your thoughts?

Many thanks

Used Mesa 2:90 or VHT...I seem to recall Carvin doing a great one at one point too..

If you don't need stereo the Fryette Power Station works. Other options

Mooer Tube Engine 20 watts mono coming out in april cheap
VHT/Fryette 2/50/2 or 2/90/2
Randal RT 2 50 cool because one side can have el34's and 6L6 on the other.
Mesa 2/90 2:50 or 20/20
Peavey makes some cheap ones out there
Carvin TS 100 is affordable too
Marshall has some as well.

Plenty of options. Budget and needs will narrow it down for you.

That Mooer looks cool. I bet it will be a modders amp

I reached-out to Fryette to see if the PS-2 I own would be a good alternative to the 50/50. They mentioned a lot of the proving-out of the Synergy Testing was done with the PS-2. It sounds great.

I used a Randall RT2/50. Great amps when you can find them.

I'm using a Power Station as well...has the added benefit of being able to record silently, still pushing Power Tubes and recording direct to DAW using IR's.

I haven't opened it up yet to hear how it sounds, i've mostly only been running on a Bogner 1x12 or direct at house volume. I also have a Peavey Classic 50/50 for stereo use when i get a chance to hook it all up in stereo.
