Any experience with Trace RA500sx Power amps?

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I am looking at a good deal on a Trace RA500sx Power Amp (see pic attached) and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with it. Specifically, I'm wondering if this is as loud as the older ones (which I have) and if this is a pre-Gibson or a Gibson-era Trace.

    Any comments, etc. are welcome. Thanks!

    Well, I went ahead and snagged it anyway. At $275.00 shipped, it was too good a deal to pass up, especially given my experience with an older model. :D
