Anyone here familiar with them? They seem to get pretty much nothing but 5 star reviews everywhere, and have that classic Engl tone, at a much lower cost. And the built in 1.5 watt power amp is perfect for me, since I'm just a studio player at the moment (and of course if I play live, I can just buy a power amp). In a few days I'll finally arrive at my new place in Maryland, and I was strongly considering getting one, along with a Randall 1X12 Isolation cab. Any thoughts/suggestions?

Yes, that is a perfect studio amp for high gain. As or the cab, I'd say definitely the Randall or even a Mesa if you can. I don't have much experience with the amp itself, but even just rough amp simulations of the thing are amazing in terms of tone and versatility.

I've heard clips of it with a Peavey 50/50. Sounded absolutely fucking killer.

Just got the E530 in the mail today. I don't have my speaker cab yet, but even through headphones, holy shit this thing sounds incredible. I've seen a few reviews where people said this preamp didn't have enough gain for death metal, and they're fucking stupid. It's got plenty of gain, that classic Engl tone, and sounds fucking fantastic! I can't wait to get my speaker cab in the mail! If anyone has considered this purchase, I say go for it, you won't be disappointed.
