I never really liked the sound of Mesas. I'd go with the Kettner.

haha..mix reactions from everyone.but i have only tried the dual rectifier at the shop and boy it was amazing without me even having to tweak with the settings.is it true the 2 channel ones has more tonal range than the 3 channel(newer) dual rectifiers?

I would go with the Dual Recto. I own a Triamp MKII. I loved it at first (3 years ago), but now I have grown tired of it because the tone is just too polished. I much prefer that fizzy recto tone over the Triamp.
