Hi .. I bought one of these amps, my decison based heavily on this review. To be honest, it been nothing but problems since I got it, I´ve had to return it becuase the firmware could not be updated on the amp and it was mysteriouly freezing and turning itself off randomly .. the store managed to update the firmware for me and it seems fine for the moment ... But having used various tube amps before, I´m starting to think I should have gone for that Hughes and Kettner I was thinking about instead.

But for anyone thinking of buying this amp, here are somethings you should know

The Software to update the amp is PC only. (Why no mac version?? )

The MIDI port on the back of the amp for the Sanpera controller is 8-pin not a regular 5, so you need to specially order the MIDI cable from Peavey. It does accept a 5-pin cable, for when you need to upgrade the firmware.

DEFINTELY check the Peavey Vypyr forum before you consider purchasing this amp, so you can see the host of problems others are experiencing ..

Thats my 2 cents .. hopefully this will be of use to someone!

NOTE: A 25 ft version of the MIDI cable can be also ordered from Thomann ..
