I know Blackstar doesn't get much love around here, but these were just announced and I found them super interesting. Looks like they revamped their "HT" line with plenty of modern features. If their claims are to be believed, they all run at 250V plate voltage (They only require 9V and 500mA, which makes me skeptical about it, though). https://blackstaramps.com/dept10/ Dept.10 Boost Dept.10 Dual Drive and Dept-10 Dual Distortion The boost is quite straightforward. The other two have plenty of bells & whistles like cabinet simulation (Similar to Two Notes interface), direct USB recording, XLR out and remote switching. They really thought about almost everything... I mean, no remote switching? WTF?. I assume they will use SMD construction, but man I've wanted a tube boost for ages (no, I don't want to pay 500€ for a Kingsley Page). And finally some videos: I'm very intrigued to see these into the wild. They tick a truckload of boxes and if they sound good they will sell like hotcakes. They're priced similar to the competition but offer so much more. The design is also pretty darn cool, and kinda reminds me of the SPL Iron mastering compressor.
