    This is apparently not an updated Picocalve, rather it's a new design. Apparently it'll only be $199, so it might be fun to screw around with.

    $199? That can only be a good bang for the buck

    Sweet. I follow the jca page on Facebook and hey have a few cool things in the works. This looks pretty cool, but doesn't mention how it will be voiced if it was an slo preamp I'd consider.

    Listening to the clip on their site, and it's really not half bad, either. It's a bit more edgy/Marshally than I normally go for, but if you think back ten years to what you could buy for $199, this is pretty nuts.

    I like the looks of that. And as Drew said, the clip sounds pretty damn good.
