As many of you know I'm a long time Trace Elliot fan, so when Musician's F#@*#d bought out all the remaining TE stock to be sold at greatly reduced prices I was one happy dude... just think, a brand new TE RAH300-12 for $718.94! Well, it arrived yesterday... only it wasn't the current model RAH300-12... it was a RAH300 SMX. So what's the difference? Besides being a 4 or 5 year old model it doesn't have the harmonic emphasis function, noise reduction circuit, no FET switching, the valve stage is in a less useful place in the preamp circuit and it doesn't have the electroluminescent display! To compound the problem they tell me all the RAH300's are gone now... no more to be had. 1. Should I keep it? 2. Should I try to get a much lower price and keep it? 3. Should I send it back and wait for another really good deal to come my way? If I could have any amp in the world it would be a Trace Elliot (all tube) V-4, V-6, or V-8... anyone got a line on one of those? I would save me alot of trouble.
