    Been looking for a new amp head to go with the cab I loaded about a month or so ago. I almost bought a new Orange TH30 but at roughly $1100, I was not in a hurry to pull the trigger. Then I saw this one at Guitar Center for about half of a new one and decided to take a chance.
    I'm glad I waited.
    Have not really tried it out yet. Got home late last night and fired it up just to ensure it worked. Only was able to put the volume on 2 with the guitar volume also on 2.
    I will put it through the paces today though.
    I went ahead and bought a full set of the Genalex Gold Lion replacement tubes. I figure even if I don't use them in this amp, they will be good to have on hand. This beast takes nine tubes for a full replacement. Having never paid much attention to the TH30 in the store, it's also bigger (and heavier) than I was expecting.
    Of course my wife says "well, there's your Christmas present."

    I LOVE my TH30. The clean channel is incredible. Some say the dirty channel is limited but I love every sound out of it.

    Enjoy!

    Happy NAD.

    Very looking forward to your in-depth review of this one.

    I'm currently torn between the TH30 and teh Mesa Transatlantic TA-30. Decisions, decisions...

    Congrats!

    I'd love to hear one of these side by side with my Dual Terror. Feature wise, they are pretty similar amps, with 2 channels and power scaling. You get a FX loop with the TH that the DT lacks and the tone controls are somewhat different.

    Spoiler alert. Your gonna love it. Using an eq pedal through the effects loop is a great cheap tool on that particular amp. You'll be surprised on how much that helps dial in New flavors on the TH.

    The link below was posted recently in these forums. It compares the TH30 to other Orange amps. Comments reveal thenTH30 was liked near the top of the comparisons by more than one viewer. Good sign.....
