Grant, about pricing and product, your feedback would be a help: Which features would you require? Which features would you like to have but not absolutely require? How much would you be interested in paying?
I've tried to say more than once elsewhere here in the forum I'm not interested.
Unless the plate amps have every feature under the sun, with enough power, and are free.
Even then, in a new build, I wouldn't want to be adding more material for a plate amp chamber, changing weight, or centre of gravity for each cab, buying a whole bunch of (my) standard outlet plug to IEC power cables, etc etc etc.
When I initially commented, I said I was only interested from a price point perspective.
And the reason I was interested in that perspective is I maintain one could buy a smaller amount of regular power amps vs plate amps, for the same, or less, cost. Some of that is also that I can run (with the right amp) at least 4 cabs per regular power amp.
Regardless of features, for the plate amps to be attractive as an option (for those that may be interested), they would need to cost 1/4 the price of a regular power amp that will do 4 cabs in order to be price competitive. Or, if they do have DSP including EQ etc, then they need to be the same price (or lower) as however many regular power amps and a driverack (for example) any given user will require otherwise...
