Hello again all,

I am sure this topic has been brought up before, but I just can't seem to find it.

I am at a crossroad of purchase decisions. While I love the nice flat response I can get from a good pair studio monitors (the Samson 80A's come to mind), the issue is, they are not portable/rugged enough to take out of the house to gig with others, nor do they serve a purpose of a keyboard amp in say, a small club.

I am considering buying a Samson Expedition Express Portable PA (250 Watts) for use at home, as well as some occasional gigging.

Does anyone have any experience/feedback on using a portable PA as thier main keyboard amp?

Thank you, and peace

People do it all the time. I used to use powered JBL EON's & a mixer. Now I use stereo Roland KC300 amps (the new model is the KC350).
