I said I knew everything but actually I didn't know anything.

It's called irony and satire.

Jahjahaha: Sorry, but I guess I missed the inflection in your voice and the winking smiley face...

So, do you think you have one of maybe two units ever to make it into the hands of endusers prior to Sonic Adventure melting back into the underground of far Asian sprout up companies? In your opinion, do you think SA has gone away for good?

Just in case you can't tell by the tone of my SA posts... I'm just jealous... !

I bought it off someone at our school for cheap but I think the amp itself is decent. Most likely it's a tube problem because I never had such problem with stock tubes if I remember correctly. I don't know what's the deal with SonicAdventure, but if it's gone forever then I may feel more special about owning a Reality.

It uses Monster PowerLineâ„¢ 300 power cord, anyone think adding ferrite bead or clamp is still necessary?

Okay, I swapped the tubes and now the noise is coming from the left channel. Does it mean that tube is faulty?

Yup... I had the same thing happen with my old MG Head OTL. Get yourself some new matched tubes or maybe... the old tube is covered under the SA warranty?

Bought it from braillediver. Don't get me wrong though he is a great guy to trade with, without him I can't find those specific Amperex tubes elsewhere.

Thanks for all the comments, I will take the buck from here.

Sorry about not getting the joke. I'm a little slow here....

I too have a special feeling that the Reality maybe a rare item.

Glad to hear that the problem is probably limited to a tube. Hope you get it resolved.

What are you refering to with the power cable? The power cable is pretty thick and unweildly.

Jahjah: Too late now, I've already bought a new MG Head... Oh well? Good Luck selling the Reality!
