Picked up one of these as I love 5 watt amps. It is branded as "RMS" here in Aus. And still dirt cheap.

Review:
This amp sounds very bright and somewhat shrill until the master volume is on 6 or above. Then it gives just amazing full clean into crunch tones. On full its a bit fuzzy. It absolutely nails early AC/DC tones. It really is a unique sounding amp.

The 5 watt to 1 watt switch is weird as the 5 watt setting has more gain in the circuit. So the 1 Watt is actually better for cleans....

So I run it with a cheap Bugera attenuator and its a whole lot of fun. Absolutely awesome with any pedal you put in front of it.
