The Egnater looks very interesting, the possibility to blend the output tubes is really innovative. I had ever tried it, and I wonder if it really makes a huge different to the sound? Since its mostly the pre-amp tube that sets the sound/tone for a tube amp, the difference in sound will most likely come when the the tubes "crack" up.... eg. with power-tube distorsion. But it sure looks like a very serious piece of gear, and the prize seems just right. These guys at Guitar Player are really good, and if they say it's good - I believe it is... I must try to get plugged-in in one of these some day.... smile.gif

I like 'em both biggrin.gif

The Egnater is awesome, no doubt about that!
But the little simple Vox is amazing to.

I advise you to try 'em out, as they're different amps.
But I don't think you'll be dissapointed no matter which amp you choose smile.gif

The egnater technology is amazing, tons of diffrent sounds in there!
Randall amplification actually liscensed the Egnater technology for their RMS modul series!

I would go for the Egnater in terms of verstility and the Vox for raw rock/blues sounds (it can't do metal)

Thanks for the feedback. I fell in love with the Night Train because of its looks, and I dig the VOX sound. But this Egnater has gotten some rave reviews and seems to have more vesitility...

here is another review ,

this one by premiere guitar, a glowing review...

I am replacing a 25 yr old Randall amp that is fading on me. I could spend $150 to find out if it is fixable... or just apply that money to a new amp... so wink.gif

They both look cool. I tried The Night Train, nothing special IMO, small headroom and good overdrive, but nothing "wow". I would buy Fender Hot Rod Deluxe instead anytime. I haven't tried Egnater, but I somehow doubt that it is that great. Blending of powertubes may produce some cool effect when cranked, and it has FX loop (night train doesnt have one, serious setback). It may be good for home playing, who knows..

Ivan,
I will look into the Hot Rod more but on the Fender Forums readers were complaining that it's hit or miss with each amp! When it's good it's great, but some have problems from the factory huh.gif makes me nervous to try one... but I really like Fender so I'll take a better look wink.gif
