Absolutely LOVE my 6176.

I don't think its any worse than double-single 610 + 1176.

The thing with the 610 is that you really really have to work the sweet spot. It does have its own sound, but you can pretty much tweak it to have a totally different color.

At first I was all gain-stage conservative, but thats not what this baby likes. IF you play it conservatively, I agree that the preamp is not super-duper exciting. But thats not where the magic happens.

Remember it has 5 stages of gaining, and a delight to mangle any signal. Plus a mic/line fixed impedance switch to add even more tone. Love it!
