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. Posted Image

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?
You call that a knife?

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. Posted Image

What a little weenie amp.Posted Image 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.
