Lucky! I want one of those so badly, but it'll be a year or two before I can get one...

The output lever cuts the output from 100 watts to 50 watts or 50 to 25 for the 50 watt version. I think the mains level is for if you're using it in a different country, so you can change the transformer from 110v to 220 or 230v

Don't listen to this guy. The Mains Select is for volts, 120 if your in the US. Output Select is to match Ohms to your speaker cabinet. D.I. Output is for recording.
