    ARCHON NAD!!



    Well, it was a long day at work waiting to get done and pick this bad boy up on my way home! This amp is amazing! WOW, the clean channel is freaking perfect! The lead channel is OMG with endless adjustments. Hammered it with my 3 Tremonti's and a buddy came over with his CU24 25th anniv. and a custom shop 63 reissue strat. We were amazed how sweet the strat sounded clean and dirty and he has a sweet Voodoo, he said he may need to get an Archon as well PRS has raised the bar again! This amp is insane! Only ran it in 100 watt mode so far and today will be another day of Archon Bliss! Also...was amazed at how much more ALIVE my effects pedals seemed thru this amp also...notes seemed alive and singing! Store said they are flying thru them, next to my head was another Archon being picked up too! Thank you PRS, you have made an amazing amp! I am in love!

    Thanks guys, I am having a blast with the Archon! Yesterday I rocked my Tremonti CustomSE heavily modded and wow, it really had a difference with the maple neck tone wise, made it seem like a different guitar, the amp brought out a lot more bite than my other amp, made me love my SE even more! Didn't want to put it down,but already had plans to go see Godzilla in IMAX 3D...pretty cool...today I will be playing the Black Cherry Tremonti...very heavy,heaviest of my 2 usa's! Been a great weekend! #LOVEMYARCHON

    Grats on the new amp. I am still waiting to try one. As of now, it's between 2 Channel H, Archon or Mark V for next amp.

    Dude, I had a 2 channel H a while back, the ARCHON blows the H away in my opinion. Loved the clean on the H but the lead channel was lacking. The ARCHON has an even nicer clean than the H and the lead channel is to die for. The amp is very powerful and responds wonderful to your pick attack be it light or hard. The amp just sings and makes my arm hairs stand up! Its hard to describe, but the ARCHON is the ultimate amp. Of your choices....definitely go with the ARCHON!
