You guys are such gear snobs! I think this little baby has it's place and at it's price point there's nothing that comes even close. The Focus SA clearly has more power but it's also more than twice as much money. Unless I'm missing something there is no power amp with the portability of the Bose unit for that price and if you don't need a lot of power you could use this, a compact pre-amp and a efficient light weight cab and be well under 30lbs with very little bulk. In many venues in NYC that power amplifier and the right cab would be more than enough.
