I just got one of these amps this week. I had been on the fence for a while as I had not demo'd one in a store, but decided to go ahead and get it. I was really suprised how much I like some of the "Voices" on channel 2. I found several that I thought were really cool and dialed in several clean, high gain, and in-between tones. The effects are decent too. Granted, the original amps will sound better (although much louder) but if you are just playing at home, I wonder if you really need anything more than this and maybe something like guitar rig. I guess I am on an anti-boutique run of AAS and wondering if I really need what I currently have as I am getting so little time to play lately.
