I haven't been here in a while. My GAS issues really re-surfaced with the Origin line. Good to read all the info and see the usual posters. When I read about this new line I had to come back. I am torn about which one to buy. The JCM800 demo really cleaned up well, almost plexi. I am unsure about the headroom at that lower gain stage though. The plexi had that tone I try so hard to squeeze out of all my gear though. I guess pushing the plexi with my OFA or a Timmy is an option at bar volume, but the JCM800, if some what loud enough with just a little dirt would allow me to just ride my vol pot. Ill wait on reviews and demos here.
