I got this from Mystic Michael a few weeks ago, and haven't really had a chance to post any pics or opinions. I can say now that it really does rock and it was new in the box, never used, in perfect condtion. It doesn't get as much of a snarl as my B800 can, but it does well, and has the lovely built in compressor and noise gate, just like my PB100-15 combo.

As for sound, it's your basic redline series sound, as it's really just the preamp section without anything inside. In fact, as you'll see in these pictures, that is literally what it is. I was really surprised, especially after seeing the inside of a Quad-x, at how empty the RSP is.




The only issues so far is some scratchiness in the pots, and slight corrosion on the tube socket, which is expected on a piece of equipment that has been sitting for about a decade. It was easily fixed with some contact cleaner and tuner control cleaner/lubricant.
