How Do Polls Work?

Vote for your favorite products in an existing poll or create a new one. We’ll make the most popular products available on the site in limited-time events called “product runs.”

I think most folks here don't need the preamp functionality of the 281. The 280 would be within the budget of a bigger audience, and sonically it sounds exactly like the 281, mentioned both by the Violectric engineers and people who have A/B'ed these amps.
I really like the sounds of 281.
Boy, if we could get a meaningful discount on a V281, that would really be something.
