I can add a bit of history. The MP100 was in fact built under the Hafler name for a while. Strangely, a few transitional pieces were built under the Rockford brand. Bill Hannapel designed the signal path, but he told me that he left the control section (digital) to a fellow engineer. I have an ACT version, as well as two of the Hafler models, all with foot controllers. Somewhere in my paper files are the original owner's manual and a schematic.
 Although my original ACT unit is the non-tube version, it is still my favorite. An amazingly well thought out piece of gear.

Hi all,
Googled here when looking for AP100 info. I have 2 valve (1 faulty) models that I never tried live at volume.
I always wondered how good their basic tone was/is?
It's nice and reassuring to find they seem to command respect.
I have used a Marshall JMP1, RolandGT6, ZoomG9  preamps but was never that impressed with the tone.
I have a Boogie Studio preamp but I went to use it at a gig and it suffered from HF squeal at volume & had to be abandoned!
I have the Digitech 2120 but I stopped gigging before I could use it in action.
No one has mentioned the Compression and 2 x ? Band Eq' it boasts.
I was going to add my own footswitch as the connections are fairly easy to make.
I am in the UK
Chrs.

Hi, I am trying to track down the manual for the mp100t but this thread is probably a bit old now. Long shot but if anyone has it would it be possible to pm me the file? Thanks!
