VHT is not the VHT of old. (Now Fayette-spelling?) And the company that owns the VHT name is a Chinese Investment Group that owns many Chinese Companies and they make these amp in China. that accounts for the low cost. And How they got the name from what I read, is the original owner put the name up against a loan and didn't repay it in time and lost the rights to the name.
Looks like they took a page out of Blackheart/Crates' book about nice low cost amps built to be modded.
I'm not dogging them by any means. I kinda hope it leads to a lot more great sounding less expensive amps. Time will only tell.
