Hi, first post I think the manual for this amp, the VHT rep, and the amp designer the rep said he double-checked with (which has got to be Mr. Fryette, right?), all have one thing backwards: The manual says that in "Auto" power amp mode we use the tube recto (Normal mode) on Red and the solid state recto (Enhance mode) on Green. Pretty sure it's the other way around -- at least to my ears and fingers. Green is definitely squishier in Auto and seems to have that organic tube recto sag, not Red. Picking it up tomorrow regardless, but I'd like to know for sure and have a baseline of info before the amp starts teaching me things. It's hard for me to believe I am the only one who is correct. I've searched far and wide for this answer. Any owners know for sure which channel uses the tube recto and which channel uses the SS recto in Auto mode? Thanks Mike ps. The VHT users forum is a ghost town. The Sig-X was supposed to ship, what, a year ago? This is a small company -- should I be worried, esp in the event the amp needs servicing?
