Have any of you tried these out yet?
Having recently sold my amp these are on my radar, mainly for the weight to watts ratio. Easy to transport to the studio & the odd gig, plus can plug into the laptop / desk.
Also has power scaling down to 0.5 watts so can get that cranked amp at home.

I am going to try some over the weekend hopefully, 50watts is 165 Shocked

Knowing how well the Cube series sold/performed, pricing looks quite decent for a getupandgo amp. Looks great for home/studio use (back panel has all the goods, it seems), and including a 5" monitor speaker in the head is such a good idea.

Hmm so looking at the specs the 50 watt does not have a presence knob or effects loop, I can live without them but the deal breaker for me though is it does not appear to work with the 4 way switch like the 100 watt, am I wrong?

I don't see a 50W head on their site but the combo says
Quote:
POWER CONTROL switch (STANDBY, 0.5 W, 25 W, 50 W)

The neat thing is that it's more than 100% efficient, giving 50W output from 47W input.
