Please don't make that mistake. I owned an IVP and never was happy with my tone. Gauss speakers on the other hand sound great, IMO.
I've owned 2 IVP preamps and they get a great Bobby tone IMO. I sold them both to 2 different Bobby players and they both are happy and sound great with them. Very late 70's/early 80's sound. But it is hard to dial in that EQ.
Really?! Wow. I owned 1, tried my best to love it but never could. It always sounded anemic to my ears. I sold it as a package deal with my UE400 which didn't give me the right feel and never looked back. The guy who bought the IVP from me ended up selling it I believe.
It's probably very dependent on what else you have in the chain.
Back at that time it was my Soloist > UE400 > IVP > Peavey Valverb > Tubeworks 1160 > 2x12 with Cannabis Rex speakers.
Now each other piece I have used before and after and very much loved.
To each their own! But it's nice to hear others got their mojo working with the IVP!
