Ref the LA4000. You haven’t actually written a review????
I would be interested if someone actually has.
No I haven’t. Very few people, have actually got one of these, or maybe even no one yet. There is no information available even for the pricing.
What is the price for han in Puerto Rico? Thanks
Anyone saw this AMP yet? Any operating experience known ?
I haven’t heard of anything about this since then.
