    Hi guys,

    I Iam about to ask which of these amplifiers would you prefer and why?

    VOX AC30 1979 (McKenzie speakers) vs Framus Ruby Riot II (Celestion Vintage and Greenback)

    I am owner of Framus Ruby Riot 2 but now I can buy interesting Vox AC30 from 1979 with 2x12 McKenzie loudspeakers.

    The point is that I want keep just one of these two amps. I have many cons and pros for both amps in my head and I am unable to make decision so I would like you to discuss here and maybe it will help me a little bit?

    I am curious about your experience with each amp (sound, quality, VOX is handwired vs non-handwired Framus, maybe future value of both amps would be interesting, McKenzie speakers vs Celestion and Greenback etc.)

    Thank you!

    Cool, that is it! Yep but you can still repair a lot of things easily with soldering iron. I love it's sound but there are a lot of people who say that 1979 Rose Morris sucks? There is some cost reduction with these models but I still think it is a good amp. Am I wrong?
