    Well after watching reviews and all the feed back the SLX seems to be the best sounding but just out of my price range right now the few I seen where close to a $1000 asking price. I found another 900 DR made a offer and got it for $400 that's half of what GC is asking for them used right now so we will see. thanks for all the input.

    Congratulations on your recent score. There is a brand new old stock one here where I live, but the shop owner wants $1.300.00 for it !! To rich for my blood.
    It’s the 100watt DR

    Congrats. The DR is a fine amp. Stick an EQ in the loop and you're golden. Enjoy!

    That goes for any amp with a loop, really, it can really do some magic!

    i like them both. a slightly different flavor between the two. from my experience you cant go wrong either way.
    the 900 series has a hate tag around their neck anyways.

    I certainly know of the reputation all too well , back in the early 90's I played thru a SL-X several times and liked it and thusly my love of my favorite speaker the Vintage 30 was born . The SL-X was spoken very highly to me back then when my head was up Fender's back side . Versus nowadays where it's Marshalls and Les Paul's !

    I've got both amps. Does that mean I have a small dick AND a big dick? Or just two of the same size?

    That's a relief. Having just one dick has caused me enough trouble in this world.:drunk:
