    How did I miss this? Anybody tried one?

    This looks amazing for Praise and Worship.

    It looks amazing for a lot of stuff!
    For the price, you could buy a lower wattage amp with a master volume and an fx loop. But I guess it wouldn't sound like a cranked Plexi at a normal volume.

    Looks very good. I may have deliberately ignored this one. I imagine you just need a couple of good pre-amps type pedals(+cabs) and you’re good to go.

    Looking forward to the next iterations of this and the UA Ox unit.
    When the prices get down to the $400 range this is going to open up a lot of possibilities for some great tube amps to be run at reasonable stage volume.
    The effects loop is just crazy cool for an attenuator.
    Anyone have an idea what would happen if you ran two amps in with a Y-adapter?

    I would expect a puff of smoke from all 3 eventually, myself but I'm no EE...

    I love my Fryette Power Station 2 for making loud amp quieter/quiet amp louder purposes, I'm a little surprised this one is almost 2x its price even w/ the multieffects, IR, & MIDI stuff added in. Seems like a cool box regardless :)

    It looks interesting. It’s a very natural sound.

    Looks great but too pricey for me. I bought both a 68 custom Princeton and a Squire Jazzmaster for less money. If I were still a touring musician I would consider it.

    A few more bells and whistles than the Fryette and if it wasn’t 1299$ I would consider it. My PS2 is back ordered I am tempted to cancel the PS2 for the PS100 which is still 300 less than the Boss but dog gone, it sure has a lot of options built in and with the editor it is very cool. Nevertheless I will be perfectly satisfied with the PS2 and it’s meager 50 watts of 6l6 goodness. I didn’t notice but the Fryette is an impeadance matching device. I didn’t notice that in the video. Does the Boss also impeadance match?
