I'm a former owner of a Mesa Boogie Strategy 400 stereo tube power amp & a Satellite 60 combo amp with the EV12L speaker, and currently own a Mesa Boogie 50/50 stereo power amp now. The Strategy 400 was badass when pumped it at high volume with a couple of 4x12 cabs in stereo, but was heavy to move around and needed the extra cabs to appreciate its sound. The 50/50 is more portable, not as loud as the Strategy 400, the half power switch is nice to run for lower volume in the studio or onstage. I can run a 2x12 cab/ 2 1x12 cabs or a 4x12 cab wired for wet/dry/wet.
