    Finlly they got one at my GC
    This one was paired with matching 1-12 cab
    Went thru all buttons and knobs.
    All I can say is this is the ultimate class D amp.
    It does not seem to have voice of mimicking some classic amp.
    But it sorta sounds like all of them.
    Very impressed, not a bad tone to be had.
    I reccomend it to everyone.

    Yeah, Micro 50. Sounds about like 30 tube watts.
    Its the future, man!

    Which cab did you try it through?
    Was it the Neo mini open back?

    They had two 50 watters, this one said 'microtube', like the VOX I guess.
    You won't know its not a typical tube amp by your ears, save its errie quietness when not playing.
    I will say the gain seemed more 'buttery' than edgy, like metal.
    But you got the Orange for that.

    It said 'neo' on it, did not check the back just assumed it was closed.
    Maybe it was open and that helped it sound so good. Hmm.
    It was kinda crowded into a bunch of other amps.
    Seemed like a 1/2 inch mdf box from look and feel.

    No MDF in the DV stuff. Part of how they keep it so light. Plywood, but high grade.

    I'm a huge DV fan. Been gigging my combo since early December. Haven't even looked at another amp since then.

    I have the blue Micro 50 II and I really like the gain channel on it a lot. Very smooth and not harsh, almost like a good overdrive pedal. It has a built in fan on it but I haven't heard it kick on once.

    I keep the reverb tastefully dialed back to zero - it's the only thing I don't like about it. ;)

    This unit was eriee quiet when not being hit. I would at leasy expect some 'chord noise'.
