2 x 20 Watt - Power Amp by ENGL

Maveric, 16.03.2015
For my home studio, I was looking for a compact power amplifier in rack format. With this evaluation I give a short experience report in the practical handling of the device. Anzumerken is that I use the power amplifier exclusively in the studio setup, thus no data about Live / Proberaum sounds can make.

Purpose of purchase:
My intention was to use the previous sound of the preamps used in the studio (uA ENGL E530) to extend the coveted saturation characteristics of a Power Amp. Application area with me is predominantly in the range high-gain but also moderate sounds should be covered.

Useful Features:
A technical advantage of the ENGL amplifier is to control the channels (left / right) separately from each other, which makes a stereo operation not absolutely necessary. Further features are two separate sound sets (Sound A / Sound B), which can be used to adjust two completely different sound characteristics via redundant Presence and Depth controls. This is especially useful when, for example, a rhythm sound is applied to Soundset A and a lead sound is set on Soundset B. This reduces annoying readjustment when changing the application (eg rhythm lead, distortion clean, etc.). Switching between the settings is possible with a foot switch.

Sound & Practice:
The sound of the EL84 tubes is first class. Both in the clean range and in the high gain, the output offers a nuance-rich sound with many overtones. I was particularly impressed by the extremely clear playback and response at maximum gain controls. Lead sounds are very articulated and lively. High-Gain Rhythm sounds sound ENGL-specific rather warm / powerful than snappy / scratchy. The power amplifier makes an excellent impression, especially in studio applications, and the 20 watts per channel is sufficient to blow the toupee off the head. The built-in fan works quietly. Complementary to the endless sound-shaping possibilities now offered, the power amplifiers offer a refreshingly puristic sound, which is often looked for in vain in the jungle of the numerous plug-ins. In combination with the right tools (eg impulse response of loudspeakers), the output stage, however, unfolds a truly new dimension of possibilities for creative development.

The ENGL final stage is not cheap, but it offers an excellent technique in a 100% tube design. Sounds, features and manipulations have convinced me.

To flee !!!


I was looking for a power amp with a 1U format for my guitarist rack.

On the market, the most popular models are no longer manufactured: Mesa Boogie 20/20 or Marshall 20/20.

To have new, I turned to this ENGL 810 which seemed to me equivalent.

At reception, I am satisfied with my purchase: big sound, possibility to modulate the channels and weight much lighter than my Mesa Boogie Fifty: Fifty.

Unfortunately, this equipment is not at all reliable. It is the second time I return it (device refuses to re-light) and now I am asked almost 100¤ to repair it (a priori change lamps that do not even have 30 hours of use).

I used it always racked with the rest of my material for small repetitions of less than 2 hours.

The big problem comes from the design: the lamps are in the middle of the module covered inside with simple ventilation slots. When one knows the heat emitted by the lamps of power, it is a heresy.

All other tube amps, particularly in 1U format, are at the back and not covered.

In short, flee this product!
