I guess I am one of the ones who have completely lost my mind too...(lost  
it long ago though)
Down payment on a 2K at Dayton this year and it will be here in a  couppla will be next to my Alpha 8410... I won't buy another Alpha  
after what I went thru with them when my TR board went bad 4 months outta  
warranty....nice solid amp since then but the headaches and cost of dealing  
them isn't worth it. The Alpha will be the backup...or the mult amp in  
SO2R...if I ever go that route....Its said the 2K can do SO2R but I will have 
to  look that option over closely.
My primary radio is also the FTDX 9000D with a FT 1000MP.(sold my D)

I just  researched the question of what to buy between these two amplifiers.
The  Quadra had two hotly discussed potential flaws, both of which were 
going to be  stressed by my voltage situation.
I also liked the chance to add a whole  additional KW in dire times of need 
from the SPE and not the Yaesu.
I chose  the 2K.  and my primary radio is the FT 9000d even yet.
Taste in  purchasing is strong, too.

PS, I gave up waiting for a  VL-2000 which looked soooo good.
