HIWATT DR504 VS. Sound City 50+

Postby markconfer on Sun Jul 29, 2001 11:35 am

I played a Sound City 50+ at a local dealers<BR>yesterday and was very impressed. I have not<BR>had the chance to play a DR504. Should I wait to find the Hiwatt or get the Sound City (at $425)? :confused:

Check this out. The seller says it was built by Hylight. I'm not knowledgeable regarding HIWATT so I don't know if that's good or bad :confused: <P><BR><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1451263042" TARGET=_blank>http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1451263042</A>

That's a '78 Hylight head (Canadian version - fixed voltage selector). Two-input, so a little higher-gain. It's definitely a good one. :D

you might pay twice that price for a hiwatt 50 watter. i'm of the opinion that hiwatt is a better amp, but what's it worth to you? i'm urging a pal to get a sound city because he likes my hiwatt but doesn't have the bread to buy one. in fact, later on i'll probably pick up a sound city just to have one but i did buy a hiwatt first.
