a head is a pre and power amp in one

so a preamp is just a preamp (duh)
so ul need a seperated poweramp in order to use preamp

A preamp is what the instrument reaches first, it boots the signal so the power amp can use it, and it gives most of the colouration of the sound. The preamp section is where you get all your controls such as gain, EQ, vol, reverb etc.

well, you should only trust your own ears... i normally go buy popular opinion to a point. if i hear enough good about something, i'll take an interest in it and try to own it or play it. and from there it has to pass the test.

imo, engl anything is at least ok sound quality. if not excellent, whilst the only marshall preamp worth buying imo is the jmp-1. and i'm guessing since you're using the metalzone, you don't have a jmp-1.

under $500 is a steal though.

i have a 9001 preamp now, wich is nice sounding for rock but not close for metal.
and since an mt2 sucks and the engl preamp isnt that expensive, i might aswell get that, i cant try em out, its like u order u buy over here.

i just read the manual of the e530 and it sounds pretty good to me.

i just want a high gain sound, without using some crap pedal for not too much money so i see the engl preamp as my choice

the 530 may not have enough balls for you though, although im in no position to judge that, im just going by what other people say.

i may be interested in one, seeing how im sure it could get pretty brutal with a sonic maximizer and an eq, and maybe a compressor

check rocksolidamps for some good clips...

it might not exactly be a powerball as far as brutality... but remember he's playing a metalzone through a marshall 9001.

i checked those samples, but nothing sounded like metal to me, so i guess they just didnt make a metalsample right or is that it?? i cant rilli believe it is just wanna know for sure

EDIT: hehe i found a high gain clip with a 7 string(i didnt look close enough)
sounds good, im rilli thinking bout getting it
