Value For Money : Excellent
Stereo amplifier tube:
1 unit rack, 19 "

LAMPS:
preamp: 2 * ECC83 (12AX7) + 1 * ECC81 (12AT7)
power stage: 4 * EL84

power: 2 * 20W tube
connectors: 2 jack inputs, 3 outputs / channel (line out, 8homes exit, exit 16homes)
settings:

1 volume and a presence control for 2 channels.
Deep function (bass boost, super effective!)

Weight: 5.9 kg (with my bathroom scales ... ha ... this one, it will be brought amps!, 0))

What idea of ​​the volume and the presence of two common channel !!!!! NO, BUT WRONG CA??
Good, 8 / 10 anyway for its convenience and function deep ...

UTILIZATION

Not much to configure ...
corrections are effective (volume, presence, deep)
the manual is sufficient and clear.

on the other hand, 1 volume and a presence control for two channels, it's not terrible, because this type of setting, forcing us to be connected to each at least 2 HP, or use a load resistor to set the output of the channel that has no HP.
Indeed, the failure to connect the load and apply the volume output, will eventually damage the output in question, knowing that there is no fuse on the output, unlike for example VHT .

power is quite sufficient to play on stage, knowing that we have to dub over the sound system.

SOUNDS

The sound is good, the deep is really effective.

A good choice compared to its direct competitors: the Mesa 20/20, which is still more convenient (1 volume / presence per channel), but that does not function ... and deep sound is missing, in my taste, cruel precision compared to Marshall.

OVERALL OPINION

It is good product, not too expensive compared to equivalent products (Mesa EL84 20/20)
its a good lamp, and 5.9 kg in 1U!
Whether there would be a volume and presence for each one-way, here is a great product in this range.
But what a failure! Forcing to load the two outputs, even if we want to use one!
Go 8 / 10 anyway for the good quality / price ratio and good sound quality for this range, 0)
