    Agree, but no push on connectors and the tubes aren't on the PCB. Price is half the old versions. How'd they do that with hand soldering?

    Looks like we will be doing a tear down soon! I will use the company card and buy one for R&D

    Back of the amp says "designed in Stevensville Maryland USA, built in China. I am hoping there will be the V 9 release a NAAM.

    I was holding out on a Mesa TC50 this year but now this looks fairly attractive.

    I notice the 20C has no mid control on the clean channel, but the 50C does.

    Well, the product page and videos are live! Sounds great in the clips. Hopefully it sounds just as good in person!

    Not even in the same ballpark either. The TC is a classic flavored modern amp that can get classic sounds but can be a fire breathing gain saturated shred beast. Looks like the new PRS amps are geared specifically to the classic/vintage budget crowd. With only 3 pre-amp tubes in the gain stage, you aren't going to be playing much modern music on it. Whereas a TC can stretch into many territories.

    Agree from what is shown in the videos, but I am confused as the blurbs released earlier mention they can get saturated and I watched all the videos and maybe I missed the demo of the filth-ability of these amps?

    Want to say too that the clean tones sound fantastic, crazy bargain for the asking prices.

    Wow, these look very tasty indeed!

    The 20W combo seems like what I would want to choose for some easy portability, but that 50W head looks like a nice complement to my Archon 100W head...

    Yeah, I know:

    GET BOTH!
