I don't get what's so bad about them. Why are they shunned here? I have an AVT150, and I personally think it sounds great. I'm not looking to start a flame war, I just wanta legit reason.
They don't sound as good as the fully valved Marshall line. The preamp valve is pretty much a gimmick. Weak effects, harsh overdrive tones, overpriced... I could go on
Because Hybrid amps is a marketting ploy, adding one tube to a SS amp barely makes a difference, and yet they hike the price up to near tube-amp prices, its a rip-off.
Generally overpriced nonsense, you can get much better for the money and they're only just a bit above the MG series
