Mike, I had a Lambretta LI150. Regarding humor, If everyone stands back and takes a look from the outside, a lot of situations do become laughable. Forums do allow people who demand to be heard, say things that are, on occasions, one sided. People do have agendas. To think all this seems to have started over an amp that stopped. Unfortunately, I couldn't comment because I wasn't at the Test. What I did notice was that there was some jumping straight in only to enlarge the fact that the amp had gone down, Didn't seem to matter that people still thought the amp sounded great anyway. all amps fail at some point, ask any good repair man. There's a lot more I could say, but I think members should be able to write anything, and if it becomes heavy, find a way of not making it personal. Some of the subject matter on Forums is pure debate, and as I have said before, we have the ability to pick the bones out of an Ant. On SP there was commotion, and it only came really from one section of the community. We should avoid that on here if possible. The good thing about membership on these forums, is that if you don't like it, you don't have to be here.
Was it ever discovered what happened to this amp?
From what I read in the lightweight shootout topic it appeared as though the amp in question was a prototype of the 5000MF or 7000MF? would this be correct?
