    1. Combo amps are easier to transport...nothing new here.

    2. The one thing that kills me about the head/cab Morgan's is that the M on the head lights up but the M on the cab doesn't. Don't get me wrong, I understand why this is, but it would just bother me! One glowing M = one happy Chris.

    I'll just say I'm a big fan of the DAG15/PR12 combo size. IMO, perfect grab-n-go amp.

    #1 kinda depends on the size of the combo. a small 1x12 would be easier to carry, but when you get to the big vox and matchless sized 2x12, combos are not as easy cause those things weigh a ton.

    I don't know which one you got, but I prefer the look of combos too, but for different reasons.

    Happy for your purchase anyways. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I'm excited to get my Morgan.

    I like bigger amps, so splitting it up into the head/cab format is easier for me to transport.

    Personally, I love the Morgan aesthetic in all forms, but my fave is the small-box head sitting on top of a 1-12 cab. Super cool, like high-art design.

    The combo set-up seems a hair more versital, you could always run a cab under a combo for better dispersion yet keep a combo by the bed or grab it for small jams...DAG Almost here!
