    I kinda like tube amps, but this thing is just silly. $500. ONE watt of power (at 12 ohms). Come on and and feel the S/Noise!

    Still, it does look nice.

    Interesting product.

    They should come out with a ZVEXII with a mighty 10 watts per channel though for sure. [​IMG]

    Sonic-T = 3 or 6 watts depending on your tolerance for distortion, and is $30.

    There's no market for the $500 / watt amps anymore....or is there?

    It is marketed for the man who has everything and that include a small penis.

    Chu, I was thinking of you when I posted this. Not b/c you have a small penis (I wouldn't know!) but because I know how fond you are of overly expensive analog gear.

    I'd say this fits the bill.

    I use stage lighting to make myself look bigger. I think the product is geared to a particular segment of the buying public for whom $500 isn't such a big deal. It is cute looking though.

    I have a small penis, and think that is why I like large balky, AC power hungry professional type amps best as a sort of compensation effect and I can never ever have to much power. [​IMG]

    What a little weenie amp.[​IMG] Sorry, couldn't resist. I'm psyched as I just found out my preorder for one of these is going to happen. It's a Melody H88 II rebadged as a Onix I88. Should arrive sometime around Thanksgiving.

    Alex, your amp looks better when it's not erect... [​IMG]
