    Can this be used with 2 different amps at once?

    I've got one. Got it from Vintage King. It's sitting on my desk waiting for my Komet Silver Cloud!

    Nice! I'd love to hear your thoughts once you've had a chance to try it out.

    Why did you go this one over the standard PS2?

    I like the idea of the easy switchable channels with different tone/volume. This one also has 100 watt vs 50 so maybe more clean headroom? And I trust Fryette may have made improvements in general. It has the KT88 tubes which may give more clarity/presence though that may be wishful thinking as they are apparently pretty similar sounding to the 6L6's which the PS-II has.

    The Komet Silver Cloud also has the KT88's--so maybe they will get along well?

    I just got one specifically to pair with a GP/DI. It works great. I have never tried the original power station so I can't compare. Biggest thing for me is the switchable volumes for a solo boost. I haven't tried the load features yet but look forward to doing that. Great piece of gear...

    Wondering which one I should get; PS2 or PS100? Price difference in eurolandia is substantial. What would I be missing out on if I got the older PS2 50W?

    Depends on what you need.

    Besides the wattage (which may or may not matter to you personally), the PS-100 Gives you 2 footswitchable “channels”/attenuation levels, so you can basically set one up as a boost. (You could run a clean boost pedal in the effects loop of the PS-2 to get a similar - if not identical - effect.)

    However, the footswitch jack for the PS-100 is on the back panel and takes away one of the speaker jacks, so you can only run a single speaker out instead of being able to run a pair of speakers with the PS-2. (You would need a 2-speaker cab wired to a single jack with the PS-100.)

    Other than those things, I believe they are the same.
