Re: small battery powered, stereo amp.....ORANGE MICRO CRUSH 6S

yeah these have a regular guitar input and "has two speakers for full stereo sound, plus line-out/auxiliary-in sockets. It includes a 2.5mm stereo jack socket to plug in your Ipod/MP3 player"

Which is kind of misleading "stereo sound" is not the same as stereo I don't believe and anyway how can you have stereo without some separation of the speakers?! You might get both sides of the stereo field but they would be so close together...?

But at that price you can get two as Michael said. I found no vids on Youtube yet to convince me of a good loud clean sound however so...

Ha, Per, I remember my Gallien-Krüger! Bad ass little amp!

If you are sending stereo into it you'd better check that it has a
stereo input. Many combo amps that are sold as "stereo" just adds some
sort of on-board stereo effect to the two power stages and speakers.
Not saying that is bad, but you'd better know what you are buying ;-))

I used a Gallien-Krüger stereo combo of that kind (although you could
feed it a stereo input if going directly into the power amp,
side-stepping the pre amp) and was happy with it for at least a dozen
years before it finally crapped out. But generally, I have mostly
reached a better guitar stereo sound when using two separate mono
boxes - like for example the Roland Cube - feeding them one stereo
channel each. Maybe this little battery driven Orange comes also in a
mono version?
