I've been after a 5150 for a while now and with college fees obliterating any hope of a 100 Watt 5150III, this is very interesting news.

735 on Thomann.  Wonder will there be an updated Bugera/Behringer 6260 on the way.

If there is id run a mile from them. I bought the 6260 from thomann - sent it back (along with videos showing the issue - you couldnt get high gain out of it without the gain knob being all the way up on the clean channel... i.e. the gain stages were linked and it means that if you wanted to switch from hi gain back to clean that you couldnt, because the clean gain was all the way up). Thomann and Bugera tech support couldnt explain it to me so it went back. They sent me a second one - the tubes blew on that the first day and it had the same issue with the gains being linked ....so that went back for a refund..... It was a pity because the tone out of it was was actually very close to a 5150... but completely unreliable.  I put aside a few quid and bought an old 5150 that needed some work instead and it was well worth it.  Pity they're crazy expensive now. Will be interesting to see what the new 5150 variant 80W sounds like...
