    I have found one of these heads at a pretty decent price and was wondering how they compare to other Trace heads. This is the one head I haven't ever had the opportunity to hear or play through. It has the V-type pre which I know sounds awesome but how does it sound with the 280w SS power section?

    I'm looking at using it on my Trace 1524 cab for just about every kind of rock music. Will be as nice as my RAH350SMX? Power? Reliability? Any input would be appreciated.

    I love this amp. It has a warm nice sound and it is powerful, too. However, I think it is very different from the RAH350SMX.

    The head has a tube pre with SS power section.

    Since I originally posted this thread I have played this head. All I can say is... sweeeeeeeeeet! For a hybrid it really does a good job of giving you that tube tone. I plan on adding one to my arsenal when money permits.
