    Not trying to troll, flame or bash, but this caught my eye today and there is no info anywhere on what appears to be a Bugera take on the Genz-Benz Streamliner.

    I have no idea, but simply wanted to share on TalkBass.

    Cheers!

    Hmm, seems odd that they would have that pictured and then no actual information about the amp.

    It kind of looks like a night stand clock radio, and that's pretty cool. And yes, I'm being serious. The design is cool and different. Of course, the proof is in the pudding. How does it sound and how reliable will it be?

    Maybe Genz bailed on Fender and went to Behringer!!

    Isn't the Streamliner brand registered by Genz Benz ? And Status for that matter ?

    I don't think they would use the actual name if this were the same/similar design.

    The product name/line on the amp face appears to be "Veuron"

    Hi-fi into an old tube amp
    I'd imagine it would be on par with other Bugera products.

    More like a pass at a TC450.

    The built-in handle seems borrowed from TC Electronic, but the amp face bezel and window onto what appears to be preamp tubes seems borrowed from Genz.

    I'm not in the market to replace my ShuttleMax, but it'll be fun to see what this ends up being. :)

    That looks more like a display to me than a window. I'm guessing TC knockoff.

    Zoomed-in, the Bugera looks very Streamliner-esque with a TC RH450/750 handle

    NAMM is just hours away. Might be an announcement.
    It takes B* years to get from announcement to actual shipping product.
    I think they are about 3 years behind right now. Nothing announce last year has shipped.
