Both repaired so photo time! The Hexa has a bit of a 50hz buzz going on. I might replace the preamp tubes to see if that fixes the minor issue.

RAH600SMX sounds surprisingly good, had not heard that amp for about five years! The LWA1000 or any other class D I have/had can really not compete... So despite all the marketing powers that be, I am convinced class D is not going to cut it - they sound dull. All of them.

Nice :D
I totally agree class D is only a compromise, not a perfect solution.

Which one is new?
The Steamhammer moved in a few days ago. I am gonna buy a pair of Glockenklang Quattro or even Take Five (I prefer carpet on my caps over tolex) cabs for it, as soon as possible.

The Steamhammer is quite a nice amp, my old bass teacher had one. I actually dislike the lettering of it, but the electronics are nice.

Carpet starts smelling though, Tolex does not.

That's a point! I'll consider this thou I think this won't be a problem, at least i hope so cause my FMC cabs have carpet as well....

Tolex would reqiure a case if I need to drive them around. But it's likely they won't be drivin around at all.

Jep go for carpet. It is way more handy. Tolex is boxes at home and not for the rehearsal room.

Finally got my hellborg leds fixed today. Three out of the eighteen were dead. Now its good as new. Here's some pics of inside the preamp. And then back in its rack.

Great images of an excellent designed preamp! Never experienced issues with those leds but would prefer less bright colored ones. And I think the unit should have a higher output level. Not sure if this is somewhere adjustable inside..

Big Twin II Gen3 conveys amps and basses very well.
Of course one can expect or even demand this from a cab at this price level.

Still, it is great. The midrange is just so clear and the hf unit never sounds hyped.
I love mine to bits.
