Hi,
I finally received this PAS Audio 2002PCA, I ordered it at the end of April and it was very long, because we had to wait for the craftsman to weld and assemble this beautiful amp by hand, so about 10 weeks of waiting . I think he had difficulties getting electronic components, moreover the amplifier is currently unavailable for three months at Thomman.

For the moment I am discovering the amp, but already I can say that it works very well. It is wonderfully quiet, in the speakers there is no hissing or snoring. The toroidal transformer makes almost no noise, even with the ear glued to the facade the typical sound of toric is very very very low, barely audible. For the sound I wait a bit, but already the bass is formidable and the power impressive. In short, I am happy.

Hi,

Any pros / cons about 2002 PCA after few months using?
It's on my watchlist too.

Hi,

The PAS audio 2002 PCA is still a good buy, even after 2 months of use it still looks great: quiet, not hot, calm, awesome. The sound is fabulous for the price, I especially like the very generous bass.

Be careful if you are not familiar with professional equipment, think that you will need specific cords and sockets: ask me if you want me to tell you what to choose.

Ignore SINAD, it is a measurement too simplistic, at least to me.

I would not ignore the SINAD completely, it serves as a first approximation to separate the wheat from the chaff, but it is sufficient that it goes to a decent level and then the actually value sort of loses importance, except for bragging rights. It is indeed too simplistic, also for me.

I too run MC2 amps (T500, T1000, T1000) into a three way active DIY speaker, so would be very grateful for these measurements. In my personal experience they are extremely good sounding amps, and I have had for them for many years without issues (all fans switched out to noctua silent ones).
could we have some more information about your 3way active speakers . I am collecting mc2 amps and would like to do something like this
