The innovative HT-1RH offers unbelievable tube sound in a compact format. Using the dual-triode 12AU7, wired in a push-pull circuit, produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100 Watt amp at a much lower volume. Switch from normal to overdrive at the touch of a button. The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit gives you infinite variation, taking you from USA to UK tone, and anywhere in between. Add in Reverb, Emulated Speaker/Headphone output, MP3 / Line Input, plus an 8 Ohm speaker output and you have everything you need for recording or practicing.

Almost perfect headphone practice amp. I was looking for something to plug my guitar effects board into, run my ipad into playing backing tracks, and listen to the headphone output. This thing nailed it. Reverb sounds good. Clean sounds pretty good, but there is low headroom. Overdrive sounds good and get heavy really quickly. I don't need the heavy overdrive, but if you are shopping for it it sounds really nice.
The tube makes all the difference in the world. Compared this to the fender champion 20....great cleans, but headphone emulation is terrible(overdrives sound buzzy). Speaker sounds good. Fender mustang (same issues as fender champion plus too complicated for my taste)
I was skeptical about this 1w head, as I wondered if it would be enough power for me. After having it for about 5 months, it's been quite good for me, even through my 4x12. However, if you're going to run a distortion pedal through it, it's somewhat hard to get a lot of volume from it, since you have to have the gain as low as possible almost, or the sound quality just gets muddy. I run a Metal Muff through it, and if I turn the volume all the way up, I can definitely hear it anywhere in my house. However, I can't imagine putting it outside and expecting the whole neighborhood to hear it, for example. Maybe about 4-6 houses down, they'll hear it a little bit. Anyway, it's definitely good for home use. Also, I was disappointed with the absence of a 3-band EQ, but the ISF works great. All the way to the left, you get your Master of Puppets tone, and at 1 o'clock, I got what I believed to be a good Megadeth tone. If I had to admit what I like least about this amp, it's the...
Great for a practice amp. It's tube, so it does sound really good. However, I found that it didn't have quite the punch I was looking for when recording. I get a bigger sound when recording if I use an amp emulator like AmpKit with Sound Siphon. I'm still a big fan of Blackstar though, and kudos to them for creating one of the best sounding practice amps I've ever heard. Great for someone in a dorm or apartment that wants true tube sound without disturbing the neighbors.
