I'm seeing all this Capi talk

I bought a great river and API years ago. Sold the API in 2012 and kept the GR. Needing to find an API replacement and been looking at the Capi. Vp28 and the 312di clone, are right up my alley. Any preferences as far as which ones are better and the transformer upgrades? I've seen some on reverb from $300-$799. They seem to vary drastically in price and build. I'm not confident enough to build my own. I really miss that API sound on guitars!

The Capis are alright. But they’re not some magic bullet like GS describe them as.

I brought these up to Reykjavik the last week and a half. One of those times when portability pays off.
