this statement reeks of misinformation and does not really answer the OP's question as much as smear Mesa.
to the OP, you gotta ask yourself, or at least tell us why you would consider the Prodigy over your SVT-VR.
First thing is, I would try to hear the Prodigy before I dropped the dime on one.
As far as "booty" goes, a 250w all tube amp is NOT going to lack in the booty department compared to a 300w all tube amp. geez.
If you like the SVT sound, then you should probably stick with it. OTOH, the Prodigy and Strategy both have a "voice" control with several (5?) built in EQ presets. Both of them have "SVT-like" settings, so that may help you out. But then again, you already have an SVT, so why go with another brand ?
some more info on your situation might help.
