I have one and like it. Clean, clear and plenty loud.

I had one, briefly ... it didn't have enough juice to drive my two E-120s at stage volumes, but that was when I was using a Groove Tubes Trio preamp, which has a pretty low output to begin with. I'd try before you buy ... or buy where you can return if it's not enough headroom for you.

I have a few of their "solutions" boxes.. ie .. Splitter /combiners, di's, etc.... Always really reliable stuff , def not high end , but i don't necessarily believe the two to be mutually exclusive..

Wow. How loud do you play? I've never turned up past half way w/ my 2x12 w/ k's or my 1x12 wedge w/ an E. I still get shit from my band for volume. Granted this is with a Axefx, but even still.

Pretty loud ... LOL

No, I'm pretty convinced it was the anemic output from the Trio that was the cause of it. I replaced it with an 800 watt Crown XLS and I had to turn that pretty damn high with the Trio as well.
