    Darkglass Microtubes 700 Class D Amp

    Darkglass is releasing a solid state Class D 700w bass amp, it looks pretty rad. It uses a switchable b3k/vmt circuitry for the preamp. Pretty fucking rad.
    It's going to have to come out at $800 if they want to compete, because the Mesa Subway 800D is right at $800. The bass forums are blowing up over this right now.

    Can anyone tell me what poweramp in would be for?

    I've played the Subway in a store and it rocked, can't say I will be able to try the Darkglass Amp.

    Compact. Light. On a class of its own.
    Since bassists adopted them, class D amplifiers were seen as convenient version of much bigger and heavier, yet better sounding, amps.
    Most musicians were happy with compromising sound and power by saving money, weight and space.
    So a year ago we set ourselves up to end these compromises.
    We wanted the best sounding amplifier period: louder, more versatile and articulate. It just happens to be one of the lightest, most compact and elegantly designed bass amplifiers out there. Fully designed and built in Finland.
    We present you the Microtubes 700.

    I saw this on a friend's facebook feed today. I'm about to check out talkbass to learn a bit on some bass heads.
