...except, because that's what every single rock guitar record we grew up on and were influenced by and were made to fall in love with the guitar through was recorded by a guitar amplified in this manner, so it's part of the "sound" of rock guitar. Ever played a guitar plugged straight into a keyboard amp?

I'll be interested to hear and play one of these, but my gut reaction is this is an amp based on a premise that I find kind of questionable, and marketed based on a very long (and admittedly impressive) spec list, but not based on what it can actually do.
Oh, and spot on about modelers - the day I get interested in modeling is the day they start trying to do things you can't do with conventional vacuum tubes.
