The settings are easy to obtain, there only to turn the knobs, and off you go!

Apart from the technical details, we have a beautiful head! Just the amp on, you are captivated by the red LED lights that illuminate the facade but also with his Plexiglass wall! so beautiful! Nice finish, comes with a black cover on the outside, red inside!
I put 9 because no channel dedicated to independent crunch.

UTILIZATION

Setup is simple with simple! A clean channel (presence, treble, mid, bass, volume) and a channel WARP (master, presence, treble, mid, bass, gain).
It is not possible to get a bad sound with this head! Can be set as you want it will always find something endearing ptit! Just turn the knobs. The EQ is very effective for both the clean and for the WARP! The manual is in several languages, very clear.

SOUNDS

After several months of use, I can finally give an objective opinion on this head.
The clean: Pretty amazing to have such a good clean on the head of this style! The presence knob allows a range of sounds impressive slam, crystalline, warm, round, anything is possible! The EQ is super efficient. Clean and remains clean at high volume. Probably through the preamp used, selected ADP.
The Warp: Contrary to what one might think that the channel is not disgusting drooling, not accurate. Think again! The crunch is part of its sound capabilities, and does it well! The light bluesy crunch to creamy overdrive fatter and teeth to the AC / DC, anything goes! Again, the presence knob makes the difference and providing a real diference following the trimmings! Push the gain to 2 / 3, boost your bass a little, then you enter into the sphere WARP! Reserve incredible bass and gain. All this while keeping the attractive grain of H & K. It's boiling hot, it encourages really turn up the volume! The sound is thick, very present in the lower midrange (serious)! And the more you drop your guitar, plus show off the amp! With 2.5 tons below is unrecognizable! The palm mute are breathtaking it really encourages debauchery. I rarely use the button "lube", which has the effect of increasing the gain, I find it a little bavouille. on the other hand with the "sub" you'll get your account! A word ...

OVERALL OPINION

That's the conclusion:
Surely one of the best-in-class clean
WARP multi-channel are great because the crunch and "WARP" breathtaking.
Conception really great: devastating look with red lighting!
-Comes with a beautiful cover and a footswitch!
-The best quality / price ratio while current 120W lamp.

Only criticism that can be done (must find one), no dedicated channel to the crunch.
Will explain why the price is € 749 argus!
