Solid Amp- Customer Service Questionable  Time owned: more than 12 months
There are basically two VHF2000's. One pre-current manufacturer (Palstar) and the current Palstar version.

This amp is a solid performer, will deliver a clean 1.5 KW output and is a pleasure to operate but be careful if it breaks down.

Unfortunately, I have an older model.

My amp has developed a problem pushing full output. A quick email to Palstar, who claims to have bought all the parts and rights to the VHF 2000, says they are too busy to look at it. Further, they also say they do not have the parts.

So, if you have an older VHF2000, good luck! If you are planning to buy a new VHF 2000, remember PALSTAR may be too busy to service it.
