    Pros - Powerful. Lightweight. Easy to use. Aux in
    Great lightweight head that is hard to get a bad sound out of. Very effective EQ and power to spare. Voicing control is very intuitive. Great DI.

    The Aux in makes this a really flexible amp as it allows for audio to come in for practice and also allows an external preamp to be connected, without disabling the preamp in the head. I use this with a Mesa Rosette acoustic DI for seamless doubling. Bass guitar straight into the amp and upright bass into the Rosette.

    Pros - Powerful and awesome tone
    Cons - No tuner out.
    My primary rig is a Hartke LH1000 but it was in the shop for a repair (dropping out for no apparent reason ). I had an outdoor gig and my backup rig has much less power (LH500). Came across a D-800 that was only 1 year old from a TB member for $100 less than new. Been wanting to try this amp for awhile so I pulled the trigger. It is going to be my new primary, even when the Hartke comes home.

    Every time I stray from Mesa I regret it. So, the Subway 800 is as good or better than any lightweight head out there. Mine has turned into a backup for my Prodigy and 400+, neither of which has ever needed a backup. It won't (the Subway) won't quite do the tube warmth thing, but its as close as you can get in a 5lb package.
