    I imagine this might have already been covered but I have a question to DRRI owners. How quiet is this amp? I have a TRRI that is extrememly quiet and I'm worried about any hiss factor with the DRRI. Is this a concern.

    Well- your allusion to "Sight unseen" is the sticking point. Most would be as quiet as your TRRI, but some might have more buzz just based on condition, tubes, wiring etc.

    The DRRI's I have played have always been quiet operating, but remember it's a 22 watt amp not 85 watts like the current TRRI so it will not have a ton of clean head room comparatively. I believe this amp is meant to break up faster than the TRRI which won't overdrive until the ears are bleeding. It also has a little dirt in it's clean compared to the TRRI... All in All I think you'll like the DRRI..
