Bought it new in the UK £549.00

At first it was a fun thing with all the gizmos, knobs and tweeks, computer midi editing etc.

The only thing that I now like is the look.

I spent too much time playing with the amplifier rather than playing music, going on-line downloading patches, plugging it into the computer via midi cables. Then you discover that you will only ever use two or three patches and you have 90 of the little buggers to play with! Most of them you would not even think about using as they are totally useless. And at first the sound 'seemed' like a valve amp. however, when you place a real valve amp side by side and plug from one to the other, there is just no match at all, the valve amps win every time. It is impossible to get a valve sound using solid state circuitry!
The amp is loud without quality.

Very well constructed. one redeeming feature at least. And it looks great.

If you want to look great, then get a line 6 anything. But if you want to play real guitar, get yourself a real valve amp!
