    Hey everyone,

    Just received this today. It's a new Supro 1606; 5 watts. It's a very simple amp, just a volume knob and high and low gain inputs. Plugged into the high gain input and played it for a few hours this evening. Had a blast and the tone is wonderful.

    Yes, it is. Couldn't turn it up past about 8 o'clock on the volume knob, and at that level the tone is squeaky clean; had to use my Rat for dirt. As a 5-watter I thought it would be significantly quieter than my other amps, but it sure doesn't seem to be. I just bought an attenuator so I can get the most out of it.

    Unfortunately even 1 watt can be too loud for home playing at times. Most modern speakers are rated at 95-100db with only 1 watt input and that can be to loud unless you have really nice neighbors. A speaker swap with a lower sensitivity speaker may help a bit though.
