Should I be looking to sell what I have for new technology?
I agree with Ric. While my VL-208's haven't made it to a gig in a long time, that's mostly because I am always reviewing gear that needs to get out to a gig. Since we live pretty close, I keep taking a lot of this gear down to Phil Maneri to check out, and so far, I don't think that anything has entirely trumped his VL-208's (though he did really like the TC112AF).
We have not tried the Crazy 8's or Big E's yet, though.
That VL-208 still holds its own, sonically, in my book. But there certainly are lighter cabs which get you in the same ballpark...
