    AMP w/ digital input

    I cant seem to find a amp with digital inputs that is still produced. It seems all the ones mentioned on here are out of production.

    Any places that sell them or newer models?

    Thanks

    I've got one in the mail to me (at customs right now) that we might consider distributing soon... can't tell much more for the moment though.

    There's a thread about this somewhere, but I'm too lazy right now...

    Yes Alpine does make an amp that has digital inputs and produces 5.1 channel sound.

    I think this cheaper one can do it too

    True but you could just use software eq. I know it sucks

    So which processor seems to be what people like?

    THe clarion with the controller seems to be a good bang for the buck.

    What do you recommend?

    Thanks

    Alpine H701 or the Zapco, the clarion is good, but it's not going to have NEAR the controllability of the previous two I mentioned.

    It all depends on what you want to do and what abilities you want to have.

    Regarding software EQs. I really hope you're not referring to the WinAmp eq...
