- Amplification technology (tube, solid state, ...)?

*...Both

- Output power?

*...-10 dBu and more... Very high output level!!

- Connections?

...Everything you need! Two programmable FX loops with adjustable level ...XLR ...jacks...

B--amp... crossover... limiter... everything.

- What about controls, effects etc.?

Chorus and compressor... Great...

UTILIZATION

- What about settings?

Yes!!!

- Is it easy to get the right sound?

...Yes!!!

- Is the user's manual clear and comprehensive?

... Better than perfect...

SOUNDS

- Does it fit your music style?

... Yes...

- Which guitar, bass or effects do you use?

Spector... wow...

- What kind of sounds do you get and which settings do you use ("crystal-clear", "fat", ...)?

... every possible sound... I'm a Cannibal Corpse, In Flames, Death fan...

Also great for softer music... from Duran Duran funky sounds to Guns'n Roses rock sounds and more modern stuff like Muse.

I specially like the SWR or Alembic-like settings... but everything is possible from Ampeg to Euphonic Audio and Demeter... Everything!!!

- Which sounds do you prefer / hate?

The main problem is that it's discontinued... good luck! =)

If you are lucky and find it... watch out because it requires 115 volt AC power... It tends to clip easily with an active bass... and also with a high-output level passive bass...

Pros: see description above...

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you been using it?

A long time... I take it everywhere with me... this device is just mind blowing!

- Which feature do you like the most / the least?

You must buy high-quality tubes... and not especially high gain tubes... with non-selected cheap Sovtek or Chinese tubes you'll get a bad signal to noise ratio!

But you won't regret buying quality tubes... Standard selected JJ ECC83 tubes are enough to blow you away!

- Did you try any other models before buying it?

Yes... almost everything available on the market... Ampeg, Aguilar, BBE,Tech21, EBS... But I wanted an exceptional quality and a large sound range to pick from... And I wanted to have the possibility to save my settings!!!!...

- How would you rate its value for money?

...That's a good question... The quality is great!! That's for sure, but the price can be very high, so good luck...

- Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?

I already bought another one!! I found it in an auction. And I'm still looking for more... But I don't wanna become neurotic =)
