i'm assuming you're talking about a 5150 II....

you could get an easy $800 out of it. don't settle for $650. take advantage of overpricedness of the 5150's while it's there. you can always by another one or a 6505+(exact same amp) when they start hitting the used market.

if you run a preamp, you need a power amp to push the cab...

to run into the computer you're going to want some sort of DI/interface thing.

so the 6505's are just a modern 5150?

They're exactly the same amp, just rebranded

no, a 6505 IS a 5150...

evh left peavey and since he had patents on the "5150" but peavey had patents on the actually amp design(ripped off of the slo).

so they just renamed it.

tonally there is not a single difference between a 5150 and a 6505... even cosmetically they're similar.

the 6505+ is the exact same thing as the 5150 II
