After a long awaited 3 weeks I finally got it!
My Mesa Triple Rectifier stack
Problem is I live in Canada and I got it shipped to the US, now I'm in a hotel and can't turn it up past .2
It also has a problem with the channel switching, when I change the channel it "pops".

here she is, with my 88 Strat

That's a gorgeous amp my friend! Happy NAD!

And.... as for the popping sound, I had this problem with my Dual Rectifier head, and what i did was even out the Channel volumes and the "popping" wasnt as bad.
Also, with mine, it only happened the first time i changed the channel, if I were to change back to the previous channel, then go back, it would be a smooth transfer...

just work the popping noise into your sound, or try to cover it up with some muted strumming .

HNAD. As for the popping while changing channels. When the amp is in standby. Just go through the channels a few times. That will eliminate the popping.
It is a problem adherent to all Mesas. It is static in the resistors used to change the channels.

No, not exactly. We got it delivered to our friends house and when my family came down to the states to buy clothes we picked it up but now I'm in a hotel. Going home tomorrow, and then I can blast it.

The popping on Recs is usually remedied by turning the volume way up on the dial. In the case of your 150 watt Triple, you will be in some intense sonic pain.

HOW CAN YOU AFFORD THESE THINGS?

I know. I'm just saying that there (probably) isn't anything wrong with your amp. Every Rectifier model I have ever played (including the Roadster that I owned), would pop when the channels were switched and the volume was down.

When I turn the volume up will the "pop" increase in volume? Or will it be the same volume as it is when It's turned up to 0.2?

Yes the Pop will increase in volume if you turn the amp up. But again While the amp is in standby. (Tubes warming up) Go through each cycle through the channels of the amp 5 or 6 times. Other wise known as the Mesa footswitch tapdance. This will discharge the static you will actually hear a little click inside the amp. Now take the amp off standby and it won't pop when you change the channels.

HNAD!!!

I played a Single Rectifier in my local guitar shop the other day and i was blown away. probably the best thing i have ever heard. Part of it was the 12 gauge stings i had put on it tuned to C, but one of the best amps i have ever played on. i have a Randall RM80 right now which i wouldn't trade even for the Mesa. I know someone who can mod a treadplate module to sound even BETTER than the Mesa Rectifier!!! Once i get the money, i am going to get it. the immense awesomeness that is the Mesa Rectifier compressed, preserved, and enhanced in a compact, lightweight module. Can't get no better. Well you probably can, but i will settle for the module.

HNAD nonetheless. GAS never goes away; i pretty much have my dream amp, but i still want more and more. more modules, more mods, more pedals, more guitars, better speakers, better tubes.....it never stops. I would like to get my hands on a Diezel as well, but i know someone else how can turn a hi gain module into a Benzin module that is based off of the Diezel.....VH4? Sounds incredible.

It is nice to have these large, intimidating heads that sound amazing......but the Randall allows us to successfully take that head and make it's awesomeness become embodied in a module. But everyone's taste is different. Enjoy the Triple Rect!

Update: I got to "crank" it today and by crank it I mean about 12 o'clock, any further and your ears start the bleed. It sounds insane! So much power and punch, I've actually been able to dial in quite nicely and get a "...And Justice For All" type sound with my Jackson, and when I play on the clean channel with my 88 Strat in the neck pickup(Fender Lace Sensors) I get a very smooth crisp bluesy tone. Overall, great amp so far and it can only get better from here.

HNAD!

also, listen to boxcar. he's right. the newer mesa amps use relays that build up a static charge. this charge is released when you switch channels which creates the pop. while in STANDBY cycle through the channels, this will get rid of the static charge. If it bothers you too much get a 2 channel dual/triple because they use LDRs which don't have the popping

this is from the Boogie archives http://www.theboogiearchives.com/index.html

"Lastly, many users complain about a popping sound when switching channels. “The LDR-based 2 channel Rectifier is in some ways closer in lineage to the MarkIII and MarkIV, which also had LDRs, than to the 3 channel Rectifier and Road King/Roadster, where they started using Relays and a muting circuit, which caused popping and a noticeable pause in the sound when switching, especially going from channel 2 Vintage to channel 3 Modern.” (Johnny, 2007) The most common method employed to rid this popping noise is to switch through the channels several times while the amp is still in standby."

Because I saw it on eBay for $1200 and ended up snagging it for $1350, for the head and cab.
