This is one of the best vintage amps I've laid my hands on. If you can find it for under 350$, in good working order, it's a bargain.
Of course, there are some 1000$ vintage amps which are superior, but you'd have to spend a lot more to get a noticeable superior sound.
Soundstage and detail are astonishing. Building quality, simply unseen nowadays.
This is a great, heavy, dual amplification model.
Love it.
