I'm considering acquiring an autotune amplifier.  I prefer a tube amp and not a solid-state amp.
The choices, as I see it, are between the Alpha 9500 and the ACOM 2000A.
I am looking for **objective** input on both products, especially from those who have either owned both or have done a side-by-side comparison.
Keys decision factors for me are:
1) Reliability.
2) Ease of use.
3) Minimum drive power at full legal limit.
4) Output purity.
I will be using the amp for contesting as well as DXing on all bands from 160 m through 10 m (excluding 60 m and 30 m of course).
Thanks in advance for your input.
