i always wondered about this ever since i seen how Alexi Lahio usually uses JCM's on stage, and a rack set up with a VHT preamp in the studio. Just for shits and giggles, how much do VHT preamps run? and how is having a seperate preamp and poweramp creating different tone than regualr amps? is it much better?

edit: im not planning on buying anything, its just something i've always wondered

As far as I know he uses VHT two/fifty/two poweramps. I think you got it mixed up. He does use Marshall cabs though.
