    I picked up an Ibanez TSA5 tube combo amp about a month ago. For the price it's not a bad little amp but I've heard better for roughly the same price. Anyone else have one? I'm really curious to know what other owners have to say about them.

    Anybody seen this yet? I got it in the post recently (very fast service through the AT website!)- its a DVD recording of a live show in Texas. Picture quality isn't great (pixellated at times) and its a pretty badly encoded DVD (the widescreen borders are encoded as part of the image, its...

    I'm looking for a good, solid, reliable, and most importantly, both good-sounding and versatile amp, and I've narrowed it down to these two. Anyone have any experience with these, or have any other suggestions? These amps will mainly be used for jazz (hence the solid state) but I need tube...
