Its scary actually. I was worried that it was just going to be a recorded tone with the actual character of the amp and its dynamics lost. I couldn't have been more wrong and I couldn't be more happy about it. My brother came over and asked where the tubes were. He laughed at me when I told him that it was 100% digital with a class D mono block for power. He was certain it was going to disappoint. He left with a completely different opinion.
