HI, not sure about the 5w junior, i got the AD15vt, and i like it alot. But if you got 200 to play with, go and try the AD30vt(£129) and the AD50vt(£189), My AD15 is loud enough for what I want, but the 30 and 50 allows you to Adjust the output wattage of the power amp,so you can lower the volume without losing the sense of drive. I regret not spending £30 more for the AD30, for that feature plus louder! Go try them out, i'm sure you will like them alot, especially at that price.
I read on Harmony Central that the Vox AD series amps aren't very reliable. But then again neither are the reviews on that site. Have you had any problems with it?
How's the sound with the AD15VT? Does it sound like a proper Valve (Tube) Amp?
I've seen some amps (can't remember the manufacturer, think it was Laney) that weren't actually Valve amps even though they claim they are.
I've had mine about 15 months and still works fine, never heard them being unreliable before, i got a link for a demo on Youtube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yayu2Qq-SPw I understand it has a valve in the pre-amp, a mixture of valve and electronics, hence the name of the series, Valvetronix, but I couldn't say whether its as good as a pure tube amp, dont forget the AD15 is only £99, has lots of presets, which emulate famous amps of the past, like the AC30, have a listen to the demo, and if you like what you hear, go and try one out. Personally, I never tried it out, I heard the demo and I was sold,it fit my budget and sounded good enough for me,a novice at the time, I ordered online from GAK, but then thats me, everyone is different. All the best, Andy.
