    This sounds really, really interesting. I wish they'd left out the on-board effects (great for practice amps, but I don't like 'em on my main amp), and I could really do without the LCD display, but still, it's an interesting premise. Anyone hear/read anything from anyone who might know?

    Check the manufacturers forum, if you're interested in buying one of these, I have a listing there.

    I've had this on my radar for a while now and they're starting to leak out onto the market at last.

    Has anyone played one yet?

    I like the layout. I doubt the amp will sell well at the $1500 price point, but it will be a very cool product if it delivers on sound. The Musikmesse videos were something of a disappointment....

    It's always good to see promising innovations in amp design. Meanwhile, I'm very happy with my Pritchard.
