Bingo ! Yes... there IS a brand loyalty branch on my decision tree. I
would much prefer to buy one from TT. I have nothing against the other
team, but I would PREFER to buy one from TenTec.
I have, in fact, seriously considered the KPA-500 - FOR USE WITH MY
TS-590S - and not my Omni VII, mostly because my Centurion amp is so
blamed GOOD and easy to run. Thus, while I have no reason to buy
another amp (Bob K4TAX expressed this thought better than I can
earlier...) other than would be fun to have two amps in the shack.
So, maybe I am a TT "groupie" after all ... but, well, shoot, I really
would like TT to produce a small, light weight, state of the art, solid
state amp that runs on 110v AC, and is the same size as the rig....
perhaps a Model 418 writ large.
I like the looks of the new little amp, and I agree Stan did a fine job
with the video - he makes a good presentation. I miss Scott's nervous,
excited presentations on "TenTec TV," because I like him, and can feel
his enthusiasm, but Stan makes a better "commercial."
ALSO - the best part is that TenTec seems to have scooped the rest of
the market, and is FIRST to produce this type of amp (I think.)
