I've played the Vypyr but not the Vox. Want this for home/practice.

I've heard a lot of negatives on the vypyr for reliability.

Any opinions on which is the better SS amp ?

OH, And I meant Valvetronix, not Valvetech - Denny Crane

It's odd that Peavey released this with these bugs not ironed out. Ant word on newer ones being improved ?

I have the new Vox and for practice, it's great. However, it will never be mistaken for a tube amp.

I got the tube thing covered with a Swart AST Head & Cab. Just too damn loud to get it to sound right in my room !

I did manage to play the Vox today and that sounded great too - I'm tempted to say it sounded better - but I've got to do a little more back & forth before I make that call. The Peavey has got me stalled because of all the forum complaints.

My wife bought me the 15 watt Viper, she said "here this is smaller and quieter than your black amp (Mesa F50)";)

It's nice little practice amp. I like it. It does not replace my other amp but it good if you just want to plug in and not shake the house apart.

It takes a little while to dial in some good sounds but they are there. The effects are no bad at all. When i do crack it up its a lot closer to a tube amp than most of the modeling amps i have tried.

On the flip side the Vox Valvetronix is also a nice amp with a lot of good tones.
