What's the actual difference between these and the ADs?
Well yeah the letters are the other way around.
Do they just lack the valve in the power amp? How much of a difference does it make? etc.
I'm quite interested in a mini amp that's portable enough to bring to school/band practice etc. would I just be better off with a micro cube? The reason I'm asking is that I've tried both the cube and the VT, and I preferred the vox, but I'm already getting a valve amp and I just want something to toy around with.
the absense of a tube in the power amp makes no difference, its nothing more than a maketing ploy which doest affect the sound at al, the fact that the valvetronix range have one valve in them dosent make them great amps they are simply just good ss amps.
