Thanks for the help. Was initially eyeing the yamaha xs250 as it was only 533 after 35% discount. However, being S'porean, i decided to stall....and i missed the deal at yamaha combo shop. Price is now 780.
All the carvins I see and qscs seem pretty highly priced. Are there any models which you can recommend?
Forgive me for my ignorance, i am not very sure who are the retailers for the vaiorus brands of power amplifiers.
U can go citymusic shop at peace centre to look for budget power amp and speaker. They have a cheap brand called waferpro**** ..forget how to spell hehe. I bought a PM 600(power amp + 2 speakers + speakers stand + free mic) from them at a demo set cost 450 only. But the power amp only allow mono out. Actually it doesnt really matter for practicing for mono sound out unless u r going for competiton or other important event. For power mixer able to stereo out will cost much higher than what u expected.
