Saw that these had been reduced and picked one up off Amazon at around 50% off with free shipping. I use a pair of PGA-04 units at home for my Mesa 5:25 and Hot Rod Delux III to let me play at bedroom/headphone levels and have been more than happy with the results. I also have a Mesa Triaxis and the Recording out is a little on the dark side. I decided to get the PGA-05 to offer up the ability to choose how I wanted things to sound a little more. I seriously considered a two notes unit, but I like the Palmer gear so I jumped at the deal. Really happy I did, it's astonishing, the Triaxis has really come alive, it's like there is a change in the dynamics of the unit and it's way more alive and present than with the recording output. Even with a clean setting and a drive pedal in front, the amp seems to respond to the picking much better and has a much nicer attack and sustain. All this without having done any real tuning to suit the new setup yet. Obviously, using the main output is a different signal path, but the speaker simulator does seem to wake things up a little. I know the Palmer gear is not as popular in these parts, but I'm a happy user, it's clean and simple....just the way I like it! Looking forward to recording some new material with the band using this setup. Anyone else using the Palmer stuff? Happy with it?
