Both based on the 5150 platform w/ same pre/power tube sections.
Both capable of incredibly brutal tones
Invective has much better clean channel, which does actually appeal to me simply for contrast from crystal clean to filthy brutality in song writing
Invective has 1/5/20 watt options - which means it can get louder, but also play quieter than the 5150 (don't have first hand evidence of this).
5150 has 4/15 watt options
Invective has separate eq for each channel
5150 has shared eq, so no 'set & forget'
Invective has most controls on front, so 'reach around'... heh
Overall it just seems like you get a lot more bang for your buck for the Invective, all the silly Djent marketing jibber-jabber aside.
What are y'all seeing that I'm not?
