They have some solid state models, but at that point you're just buying the name. In my experience there are far superior amps in the same price range.

The Cheapest new H&K I would get is either the Warp X or the Trilogy (depending upon my present writing style and band situation). If shopping used, a Triamp MK1 is pretty much the way to go. None of these options will come anywhere close to a $600 price capacity (though a good friend of mine scored a Triamp MK2 for $800 from some filthy rich people who bought it for their no-longer-interested son).

EDIT: Sorry to rant, but it seems that there are several outstanding amps that cover the high gain spectrum very well that don't get a lot of attention on the forums. A new H&K Warp X was my second choice to the used Decatone I ended up buying. It sounds fantastic.

To tell you that you couldn't get a Hughes and Kettner for under 600?

They are very high end amps, and if your budget is 600 then I think there are lots of other amps to look at.
