They do look interesting and the concept is a good one (IMO).

Funny as I walked past the Astoria site today - just a hole in the ground ready for the Crossrail delevopment, lots of gig memories!

What about the modern KT66? Will the amps sound anything remotely close to a real vintage amp running old stock KT66, or is it just an empty flirt with the good old days?

I do like the look of them. Using the new creamback speaker. Yes will be interesting to hear it with old glass in it.

There are some modern KT66 that do not sound bad (IMO) - just not sure how long they will last?

I would very much like to try the single channel classic. however, as par for the course, one of the three models will make its way to our local GC, where it will be tagged at 3499.99 and sell in less than a week. Never to see another one grace our corner of the universe again in spite of the obvious demand and readily available buyer base. Such is life in the red head stepchild land.

I had hopes for the recent dual EL34, whatever it was called DSL40C or something. Ghastly thing, no good tones, all buzzola. Maybe the single example we received in our little backwater hicksburg was a crappy one. It did not sell right away and once it did, was not replaced with another. So I guess I'll never get a chance to see if it was a fluke or not. I suspect not, based on the absolute shite that has come forth from the once great marquee since the first rendition of the DSL50 and DSL100, the last halfway decent amps they made.
