I'm in no hurry to run out and get one, especially at $2,699.99.More info:
Curious how it's built. The Heritage CL was essentially the same as the normal one, just with fancier black PCB boards. I wonder if this is essentially the SVT-VR with similar treatment. The rear-panel layout between the Anniversary and the SVT-VR sure looks the same, which to me implies that the power sections have the same boards and board-mounted components.
It says the channels are voiced differently (one for the Blue Line tone; one for the Magnavox tone). I don't know enough about the SVT to know whether that's merely swapping some component values or whether that would require a redesign of the preamp, but those are separate boards from the power amp..
I love my SVT-II, but it's a bit scary looking on the inside. But all SVTs so far are a bit scary looking on the inside, but at least the earlier ones have flying leads and such which would make life somewhat easier if there's a problem.
^^This exactly!^^I wouldn't mind one, but if I'm replacing my SVT-II, I'd probably rather just have an old Magnavox model rather than a recreation with board-mounted components and features I personally wouldn't use.
