    @Waxhead has mentioned this before and I keep getting closer and closer to really jonesing for one. Anyone here care to share their experiences with it a bit more in-depth, @Waxhead I am curious and it does look like a very good way to get a couple small hybrids I have some more tube flavor and boost up the soon to be incoming Baby Blondshell to a higher wattage when wanted. I say wanted because I certainly don't need it but I also like my bigger amps toned down at home a bit better and it seems this can do it as well.

    Yes perfect for that and a wide range of other functions.

    @Waxhead have you used the line in? I use a Zen Tour and it has some decent amp sims and a re-amp out. I wonder if I could take the line out to the line in on this and maybe add some real tube mojo?

    Yes I've run my Focusrite audio interface & pedal board thru the PS - all great
    Check out this op manual.
    Everything on this unit is super high quality and is user friendly.

    Yep I read that but was curious how it worked in real life. Sounds good!

    Like every thing else - transparent if attenuating & big improvement when amping up my Roland cube 60

    Like I mentioned above this has so many uses for me. The more I read the more I gas. I love my 120watt head but it is loud although with the master volume I can crank the gain and blast the preamp section or blast the master and turn the gain way down, but, I would love to have both! So enter the attenuators only they aren't all created equal and have trade-offs at least that is what I thought based on my so my limited experience. This, however, seems to have overcome that so now my louder amps can be tamed and the quieter amps that sound great but could use some more volume can be ramped up not to mention adding a bit of tube power to the little hybrids. An Orange Micro Dark with its sweet zone can be ramped up or tamed and the little Joyo AtomiC can get some power tube lovin. The ss sections are nice but they do lack something a full tube amp has and this just might add a bit back, or the Amp sims in my interface and Logic, I am excited about the possibilities. Heck, the impedance matching alone is a spec that I can really use!

    Yes this PS is a total game changer with many potential functions.
    Don't forget it gives you a great quality series loop also.
    I have version 1 and love it but everyone says V2 is even better :)
