    Ok... So it looks like an old ladies boutique purse, but other than looks, it checks all of the boxes for a mobile practice amp. Amp models, with good sound and effects. sounds decent with pedals, REALLY mobile, ac or batteries.

    I also like the fact that it doubles as a comparatively good bluetooth speaker with wide stereo.

    Just wish it weren't so dang ugly!

    I'll post more pics next week when it arrives.

    Looks like a beefed up Yamaha THR. The Bluetooth is a nice addition.

    Congrats!

    Thanks man.

    I was looking at the THR, and several others. The THR was high on the list, but going cordless with the Adio when playing along with tracks really is pretty convenient.

    It also seems to play better with loopers without the loop fading out when playing over it.

    I really like the fact that it can double as a bt speaker (Its got to have a feature that I can sell to my wife ;) "but honey, you can use it too!" lol!

    For some reason whatever she buys for herself is "sensible" to her. Like the 100 bottles of bath and bodyworks lotions and soaps, a new canoe, sunglasses.

    I buy one new pair of work pants and I get "don't you already have a perfectly good pair of work pants?!" lol!

    Couldnt live without her though :)

    Whenever I think about it I just shake my head, sigh, and move on (and laugh when I read my comrades quotes on ST!).

    Amp has arrived!

    Barely had a chance to play with, but checked it out to make sure everything works.

    So far I'm thoroughly impressed with the models, and the bt pumps out music that is fantastic.

    Im thinking about blacking out the VOX bling on the front though. Every time I see it I feel like I need to be wearing a purple velvet hat, matching coat, and some Elton John glasses...

    Nice! We are truly living in a golden age full of gear with amazing capabilities.

    Congrats on the new amp!

    (It doesn't look that bad.)
