    Don't see a thread yet. I've been waiting for this for years. Peavey has a new 1000 watt headliner, but more importantly, two new mini Class D amps. The MiniMega, and miniMax.

    They look cool, and have tons of power...

    Thank you Peavey! I'll be the first to jump on the MiniMega.

    Oh, just on the Peavey News page.

    http://www.peavey.com/news/

    The MiniMega actually has midi in!!! That's really unique, and could be fun to play with for sure. Using an iphone with a midi interface you could change patches and whatnot on the go. Or using the new IK bluetooth footboard, I bet you could do it that way.

    And the built in tuner on the miniMax is most appreciated. I have no use for the 1-1/2 rack size Headliner amps, but I could see buying both of those mini's. Those are sweet.

    Well, the 1000 watt one isn't. More like a RH450 or Carvin "mini". I guess to me, Light is more important than size. I can rack the 1000 watter and have a nice light 2-3 space rack. That's what I'm thinking. I do wish they put the builtin tuner in that thing though.

    Typical Peavey. Nothing on the website except the press release documents. Not a hint to be found under the Products portion of their website.

    Peavey doesn't put anything on their website until they are actually shipping to dealers. I've waited 6 months once for the products to actually hit the street.

    Hmm, didnt see the cab mention. I have way more cabs than heads, and want to pickup a small amp, was going to grab a MB200, but might wait for the miniMax. I just got my hartke 112, which is really impressive I must say, and a little peavey amp would be cool.

    Umm.... the products launched TODAY. As in, they just put them on the floor at NAMM a couple of hours ago. Peavey is actually pretty awesome when it comes to posting info on products, including discontinued units. Their site has owner's manuals and spec sheets going back several decades.

    Give them a chance to launch this stuff. It's brand new... today!

    Yeah, that's good. Any insights into the midi in? I'm really curious about that.

    Oooh, MiniMax! I was wondering when this was going to happen! The head in the Max II is fantastic and it makes a ton of sense to break out.

    The mini Mega is on Sweetwater's site with all purple lights. You apparently can change the colors of the lights to other colors. No mention of midi in on SW's page though. Hope it isn't something that is being left off. I see no builtin system of saving patches or anything. So, maybe just FX loop in out, Compressor in/out and things like that via midi.
