I definitely prefer the 'digital' amps like the BASH and Yung. Just the fact that they use two-prong power cords will alleviate most 'hum' problems for users. One supplier of both Yung and BASH believes that the Yung are a bit more powerful, and he made a comment that a certain OEM asked Yung to really beef up their design. I guess that's why Yung claims that they can run for hours without problem while putting out all of their rated power. The BASH are a lot easier to mod though, if you're into that sort of thing. I have yet to actually use a Yung, but I do have one on my kitchen table disassembled (I was tracing out the preamp circuitry). It definitely looks well made, and I look forward to putting it to use some day.
