This amp is great for sure. I just start looking around and hearing other things and wonder if a tranny upgrade would improve this amp and it's response and tone. I know some folks think a tranny upgrade doesn't do much, but I think that depends on the tranny. once you get a good tranny, you get a lot for your money. more than you've ever had before.

what are the trannies in the RT? is Heyboer better? I've heard Mercury is not worth it, Heyboer being better for less.

what about a vintage set? how would one go about matching a tranny?

I think it may be worth looking at the trannies

China, they are made in china.

Your choices for replacements are limited and mercury is likely it.

Jaded faith is probably the only place u will find replacements, and I think he may even need work with mercury to r&d them.

I don't think there is one currently available anywhere

I was on the fence about the tranny thing as well, but I took the plunge and had my RM50 modified.

I just picked it up yesterday...I WAS WRONG, best sounding MTS amp I've ever heard. I sold my Foglifter+ modded RT 2/50 to buy it, and I'm glad I did. DO IT.....
