older massive vs newer massive passive, difference?
looking to add a massive passive to the arsenal. anyone heard both the earlier units (silver face face) vs newer units (purple face)? is the sound or build quality any different between the two? which would you recommend if buying used or does it matter? should i pay the same for a used silver face vs a purple face ? what tubes are people using to replace with and how much $$$? thanks in advanced thumbsup .
Don't worry. There is no magic part they can't get anymore making the old ones better. In fact, Manley winds their own transformers. The MP is a gem that is popular, they will make sure that puppy doesn't change! No odd ball tube in there that is in short supply or any of that stuff. I look forward to getting one soon myself!!
The anodizing on the front panel was lighter and airier than the anodizing on the current panel which is thicker and richer...
Wow..... almost sounds like a wine description...
The Massive can be any of a range of colors - from airy silver to dark puple-red and even brown as the Massive ages. Typical flavors include earth, leather, vanilla (from the oak), and jam ... the fruity flavors of the jam often taste like raspberry, strawberry, and plum.
