' I don't think the purists will even care, as long as it sounds as great at it's suppose to. I too am curious on hearing how it sounds, especially since I wasn't personally all that impressed with the DRRI I tried a while ago. That said, I've played and owned PCB amps that sounded fantastic as well. I even owned one of those 1969 Vox solid state Super Beatle type amps and it had a "to die for" clean sound. The only reason I sold it was because it weighed 100lbs! Anyway, my point is that $2500 is still quite a luxury when a great sounding amp can be had for less than half the price... so this thing had better literally take you back to 1964 for what it will cost you!
