    As I am sure you already know, you need not worry about being a modeler dude in a so called tube world. Listen to this then you tell me.

    I saw Anthony live he had his Kemper plugged into front of house. The second they switched it on I was kind of shocked at how good it sounded.

    My cabinet has shipped and I'll have it tomorrow. Yippee ki-yay

    So I wanted to find out why its a 4 to 6 week delivery time. This is due to two thing according to Mick. First off he is very busy with builds backed up like 30 deep. So you can imagine that will take time. Especially from a one man operation.

    In addition to that, Mick told me that he has 46 Matrix amps backordered. That is a big back order and I am sure that causes quite a delay when it's time to complete a build.

    So there is the latest of delivery time. I suggest you get on the list as soon as you can. Some of you have already waited and you builds will be delivered first. :thumb:

    Well, you guys are in for some awesome experience. I got my Xitone today. Check it out.

    Its got a cool MODE selector button/light that flashes depending on the mode you are in. The cooling fan on the Matrix is dead silent.

    I have come to prefer the sound and feeling of the XiTone over the CLR. This is not to say there is anything less then stellar with the CLR. It's just that my first set of FRFR cabs were Xitones and I think I have grown accustomed to that tone simply because I have played them longer.

    I'm glad you are paying attention wild Bill. Hahahahah. I have had 2 passive XiTones already. I thought I would try out an active one. So far I'm pretty damn happy. Playing it all day..

    Only musicians give a sh*t what amp you're using backline. Civilians don't care. To be honest I'm much more interested in what guitar the player chooses than what amp. Maybe that's from watching Rush play where there are NO amps visible on stage (believe they're hidden down below to keep stage noise lower).

    Review? Did you say review.. hahahahah

    OK. Here ya go.
    I have mine and you don't have yours. Hahahahahah.

    No really. What you have here is a device that is at the top of the food chain. Its really just that simple.

    Look, here's another way to look at it. I think you know me somewhat. Have you EVER known me to buy junk?

    I start a group buy being the first to purchase it..and that makes 3 XiTones I have had.

    I hear ya and thats true. But in the past I've engaged in TOOBSNOBBERY to a very intense degree. Still to this day, looking at backlines interest me and triggers certain before the fact assumptions. So for that reason, I'm pretty sympathetic to the sentiment of "Get that junk off my stage" while at the same time trying to figure out a way to "Sneak that junk on stage.":D

    Let me tell you. Its worth the wait. The cabinet is incredibly well made and you can see the attention to detail Mick puts into every piece he ships.
    I have been playing it pretty much all day . It looks great and I am very happy with my choice of art work on the grill and Red against black.
