    Wow. Can't say I didn't see it coming.

    Wonder what they're going to set their sights on next.

    :agreed: If it's heaps cheaper (surely it has to be cheaper than the $5,000AUD it costs for a triple rec here in Aus), and sounds vaguely as aggressive as an actual rectifier, well, FUCK YEAH! :lol:

    EDIT: Holy shit! It says it will be $1180USD in the US :eek: So either way it will be cheaper than a triple here in Australia... whether importing or just buying from a store.

    The MSRP is only $1179.99 USD, that's already a few hundred less then most used Rectos I see.

    the B-52 AT100 was $550 i think? Was that supposed to be a Trip rec clone?

    I can't see paying anywhere near $1000 for a Bugera with their reputation... $600ish, maybe. I can't justify 2K for a mesa though either:lol:

    Not saying mesa isn't worth it... it's just a big chunk of change for me.

    I like the look of the TRIREC. It's Peavey meets Engl. Tube sockets still too close together..no KT88s for y'all.

    Well, the street price will be far lower for sure. For instance the MSRP for the Bugera 6262 is $8100, but it goes for $550 new in stores. Based on that it'll probably only cost about $650 to $700 street.

    Hell I hope SO. Rectos and Marks for everyone. I'd buy the recto one just to have it hanging around

    I think it's more of reverse engineering then just copying specs. I believe the exact specs to some of these amps are copyrighted/patented, so there's no way they'd open themselves up to that kind of litigation.
