Not to take anything away from Rivera, they make fine amps, but I have yet to hear anything from a Rivera that is a convincing Plexi.
If these guys are in fact using two seperate output circuits it seems like it could be the real deal. I just know nothing about the company.

You really need to try the new 50wt head that Paul Cochrane has designed for Heritage amps, it's a true Marshall/Fender in one! I've been down to beta test it for him and can honestly say that it nails the two amps in one! He also has a unique power supply circuit that you will just have to ask him about yourself, top secret stuff!!!!!! I'm not kidding though, I didn't believe anyone could get it this close but he did! Check it out for yourself!

Isn't Fargen making a 2nd generation Bordeaux with these amps in mind. Someone on the forum has one and was raving about the tones/quality.

because he found that the Fender side worked better with the plexi values than the plexi side did w/ Fender values.

I find this to be true across the board. Its easier to compromise the Fender side than the Marshall for the best of both worlds. For instance you can get acceptable fender clean tones with an EL-34 (Rivera amps come to mind) but I find the Marshall grind is lacking with 6l6's.
