We get a lot of requests on the Spark Amp Lovers Facebook group about how to plug an external cab to the Spark to get a bigger sound, so I must say I am a bit surprised by Positive Grid last annoucement. They have been teasing for the past couple days about something BIG to arrive on Feb 22, 2022 ( Read 2/22/22 in the US date format). One would have expected a bigger amp or a Spark MKII. The wait is now over as Positive Grid just announced the release of a Spark Mini!
