Blackstar ID Core Beam - Another Home Amp Contender?

Unread post by Saul » Thu Jan 04, 2018 11:24 pm

Not sure how this one slipped past my radar as it was released I think back in 2015...seems like so long ago now :( Anyway, the Blackstar ID Core Beam bluetooth enabled amp. Anyone used one of these?

The ID:Core BEAM is the first Blackstar product with Bluetooth functionality, allowing you to stream your music to the amplifier. The hi-fi quality playback of your MP3s through the ID:Core BEAM will redefine what you can expect from a multifunctional product and with Super Wide Stereo the sound will fill the room.

With two bass, six electric guitar, two acoustic and two acoustic simulator Voices, and with a sealed and ported cabinet construction for optimum bass response and stereo definition, the ID:Core BEAM is the ultimate musician's amp for the home.

The retro-cool design means ID:Core BEAM will look at home in any room in the house.
I'm looking for a small bluetooth enabled amp at the moment and it needs to be versatile because it won't just be used for guitar but also plugged into my iMac and to replace the soundbar on the tv as well as for streaming music to. The Blackstar seems to fit the bill. Any thoughts?

Not sure if it's strong enough, but the Blackstar Fly now has Bluetooth capability. Surprisingly loud with the Extension Cabinet.

Thanks for the suggestion, will take a look. At the moment I have the VOX Adio Air GT here which seems to be a very nice little amp :)
