Brax is very high end equipment. Good luck finding their products.

The Helix line is the middle of the road, still excellent quality.
Likewise, I haven't heard either, but the comment that Helix is "middle of the road" reminded me of an earlier post by DYohn. In this post he said, "Yes, McIntosh is what I consider a high-end amplifier. Also amps from companies like Milbert, Brax, Helix (same as Brax actually), Genesis, Bryston, Linn, Zapco, Adcom and Nakamichi to name a few.
JL Audio makes good amps pretty much equivalent in overall quality to JBL, Alpine, Eclipse, etc."
So, perhaps in comparison to Brax, Helix would be considered "middle of the road." But in relation to JL, Alpine, etc. perhaps it would be above the middle.

Top notch equipment.

That's my opinion. Take it, leave it, or correct me.

Looking to replace my blown out Xtant, have been shopping around a bit but having a difficult time in coming up with a solution!  Give me a hand, out of these amps let me know what you would pick(and why)  its pushing a single IDmax 12dvc(for now).Thanks!

Zapco 9.0

Brax x2000

MMATS D2000.2

Arc Audio 2500 XXK

Eclipse DA7122

Audison VRX 1.500

Again thanks!

It's still about a month and a half away but everything I hear about the new Alpine PDX-1.1000 is that it is the next great idea in amps. 1000 watts RMS into 2 or 4 ohms in a size a little bigger then the palm of your hand. Almost no heatsink. Go on their websight and check it out. Steve Brown who builds Alpine's demo cars says it's the easiest to install amp he's ever used.  You can actually fit 1000 watts under the front seat of an import car.

That thing is ultra small for 1000W RMS into 4 and 2 ohms - wow!
