A good amp has a long life. This one might have a longer life than most because you are not locked into one front end. When modelers advance you can change your modeler and keep your amp. The idea of 2 reactors running in stereo is intriguing. I suspect this is the last amp I will ever need.

Sound
The sound of this amp is amazing. I am constantly amazed at the presence and depth of the sound. And it can play very loud. And it maintains it's openness even at high volume levels.

Features
For me the switchable voltage feature was one of the nicest features as I live most the time in Europe. This amp will work anywhere in the world. It has feet on the bottom as well as one side, so you can stand it vertilly if you wish. That could be very helpful at times.

Quality
Finish was perfect. No observable blemishes whatsoever. The leather grained tolex coverng is quite attractive, and the cabinet seems totally solid. This amp should endure being used in gigs well.

Value
Relative to price, this is a very good deal. The Atomic Reactor is a unique product in that it is designed especially for modelers. So no direct comparisons can be made to other products. But I can't imagine where I could get this quality of sound in an amp for $500.

The close matching of the tube amp section, cabinet and custom speaker make this amp perform way beyond it's specs. In that respect, the specs are misleading: performance-wise this amp compares with much bigger and more expensive amps. If you like exquisitely designed and engineered devices, this one is superb.
