This solid-state leslie is not so bulky as its bigger sisters (760). Two jack inputs on the preamp plus slow/fast footswitch and a 9-pin connector for direct connection to an organ. It's a good compromise for a first (cheap) leslie. It has no horn tweeter but the 12" speaker cabinet is conceived to reproduce high frequencies. On the other hand, it's not able to reproduce very low frequencies.
Very easy to use
Expressive, typical leslie sound
I've been using it for three years. I wouldn't buy it again because I need more output power, the other musicians in my band play very loud.

A single rotor Leslie, a large baffle Jensen provides the high mids and low through the rotor to the 'rotary'.
(Warning: one in the photo has its place in the top 900. The 825 is the bottom.)
I made a change, taking another engine of a Crumar organ, I install a 'tweeter' Jensen took a Leslie 760, Tubal, and installs a channel for the m Agues bote me (I put a 'capacitor' to 22f 15V to cut the bass sent to the tweeter 700Hz). Now is a great shout, but there is a small Leslie - in addition, on wheels. It is true that a serious lack large, but I do not play the pedals, and gnralement I work with a bass player, so I was going perfectly.
During the conversion I put a plate with power supply between, between two audio jack (standard) and a antrepdale to change the speed. So once kidney fitting easier.
80w amp transistors, motor runs fast, slow and 'brake' (arret. Trs good sound, warm, saturated control.
Somewhat limited by low conversion and without missing the Agues garish, but a good of Leslie, findable cheap, and it offers the possibility of conversion.
I found the 825 on eBay (45), and I made the conversion into 2 channels for 150, so total price - about 225. I'm happy.
