So how loud is the AD15/12? I mean can anyone compare it to another amp's loudness?

Thanks

I'm no expert by far but i'd say about twice as loud. So a 15 watter should be about a 30 watt A/B <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>

See that's what I've heard too that Class A watts are roughly twice as loud as AB watts. But what I've also heard (and what also makes more sense to me in an electronics sense) is that 15W is 15W. It just appears to be louder because of the way that all-tube Class A amps distort.

Sigh....one day when I can afford 'em, I'll figure it out.
