    There are just SO many brands and models out there these days. Just looking for a 2-channel amp, in the $200-$350 range. Not the cheapest, not the most expensive, just the best value for the money.

    I've heard of the typical household name brands, but I don't want something overrated (not watts, namesake) either.

    Any recommendations for this setup? Thank you.

    That looks good on paper as well. How old is that amp? When dealing with used amps, I don't really know the questions to ask.

    MA...nice...that's where I grew up.

    I love the amp it is one of my favorite looks wise,sounds incredible each channel has its own gain. Only reason I'm not using it I went active and didn't have room for a second so I got a 4ch.

    It does look smexy for sure! Your amp and the Tube Driver both have me intrigued. Among others, but as far as used stuff goes, those are at the top.

    When you said yours has a different color, is that just a cosmetic thing or what's the deal, do you know?

    The pre-2000 "Tube Drivers" were not the original Butler designed Tube Driver 1500 amps., they were Phase Audio/Precision Power copies. Butler places a disclaimer on their website pertaining to this. Very, very few of the original Butler "Tube Driver 1500" amps sold in 1996, before licensing out to Phase Audio in 1997. In 1998, Phase bought PPI and PPI introduced the Tube Driver amp line without the original Butler designs and were just using the name "Tube Driver" from the original Butler designed Tube Driver 1500's. After he got back the rights to his amp design in 2000, Butler introduces the re-designed and improved Tube Driver Blue in 2001.

    I am not trying to dissuade you from purchasing a PPI amp called a "Tube Driver", but if you are thinking about owning a true Butler designed tube amp, Search for one of the very rare 1996 Tube Driver 1500 models (G/L with that) or the post 2000 Tube Driver Blue amps.
