What I find so irritating is the lack of readily available REAL specs on these amps. Personal opinions on qualities such as tone and clean channel quietness are nothing I'd base forking out tons of cash on ANY amp so until I can get some real tech info I wouldn't even consider these amps - especially at those freakin' expensive prices. I have a NOS Peavey Ranger 212 that you can Google not only the owner's manual, but schematics (and tons of reviews and opinions that are easily equal to those about Bad Cat amps), but the manual not only tells you about the amp and how to operate it, it has FULL TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS like THD, S/N ratios, system / power amp hum and noise, input levels, and much more all at disclosed frequencies and re-creatable test settings. Any amp company asking the money these amps go for should be prepared to back up the hype with real repeatable / re-creatable bench testing specs that can be confirmed by others in my opinion. I'd never buy ANY amp on hype and opinions of others, all of which are subjective.
Maybe Heath Berkowitz from Bad Cat would like to elucidate on whether I'm incorrect that specs are not readily available to the general public or whether there are simply no tech specs available to compare with other amps. I've tried ther website and lots of searches / different search parameters on Google and haven't found a single tech spec yet.
To repeat, personal opinions on qualities such as tone and clean channel quietness are nothing I'd base forking out tons of cash on for ANY amp.
