Since I started playing guitar, I've been in different configs (combo stack, rackmount)
Time and pushed me to go slowly on the compact material.
I owned a Marshall 4x12, 2x12 a NOS and now on the city port.
The 4x12 is a true galley, forced to fold the seats, back picks.
I went on the high end 2x12 hoping not to lose her and it was a lot better.
But it is still bulky and heavy.
I bought the port city after the reviews on the net and I am far from disappointed (especially loading and unloading and the coffee strong conc)
I had for some time and OUR 2x12 port city at the same time so I could compare.
The NOS sound dug quite typical metal bodied but very aggressive and controlling.
The port city, you better believe it or not broadcast, it is more versatile and can be more dynamic.
Its small size is not a handicap for her in concert, I always drop the bass.
I have not tested it on big stage, maybe it is you can feel weakness but I think it should come out very well.
The integrated handle on the top is very convenient.
Less is the fact that it does not have corner protection therefore pay attention to transportation.
Aesthetic level, this is debatable, it looks like a cab ride, not very consistent with my head.
So excelent quality for money as the price of a marshall 1960 a quarter of its size and sound at least as good (I think much better but I have not heard that for a long time 4x12)
I would do without hesitation that choice
